|Steve Bates is an artist and musician living in
Montréal. The sonic is the starting point for his projects which
are evocations of communication networks and systems, or expressions of
spatial and temporal experience. Bates frequently uses sound material
that is site-specific in an attempt to uncover place and how the sonic
effects our experience of site. Time is measured, stretched, pulled at,
ignored, and extended. His work has been exhibited in Canada, the
United States, Europe and most recently, Senegal. Steve Bates works in
performance, in the field, on the air and in museological/
gallery contexts. These shifting territories reflect the content of his practice.
