Included are videomusic performance-screenings by two Montreal artists: Freida Abtan combines electroacoustic sound art with evocative HD animation realized in Max/MSP and After Effects and Zazalie Z, a dynamic vocal performer, combines her experimental vocal practice with video art. Flight of Birds by Freida Abtan is a mytho-poetic look at the realm of the spirit. Sacred Spirit «Sur le territoire des esprits sacré» by Zazalie Z. is a remembrance piece in honour of First Nation Peoples. Beliefs, myths, rituals, and cultural genocide are the various themes Zazalie Z. interweaves in this poetic and rebellious live performance.
