Jen Reimer (CAN) & Max Stein (USA) are sound and media artists based in Montréal & Los Angeles. Their work explores the resonances of urban sonic environments and the physical experience of sound and space through in-situ performances, installations and spatial recordings. Since 2013, they have presented their work internationally and released numerous publications and recordings. 

About works / performance

Sounding the City is an ongoing project and online exhibition that investigates the musicality of the urban soundscape through field recording and sound installations in context. Since 2016, we’ve developed this project in Montréal, São Miguel, Guelph & Valparaíso, and have followed a similar methodology in each place: searching for specific acoustic environments, documenting spaces and developing sound installations that blend with the soundscape and infrastructure of a place.
