After several years of studies in classical violin and literature, Catherine S Massicotte turned her musical practice upside down, switching from performer to improviser and sound artist. Cutting codes open, she favours the communicational aspect, the meeting, and the exchange. She aims for a less rational understanding of the instrument and its functions. She is involved in several projects and ensembles, including Tutu Combo, Minus 3, P.O.W.E.R., and GGRIL (Grand Groupe Régional d’Improvisation Libérée).
