The return of Studio Bell

It’s the return of Studio Bell, which will be held this year at Centre Phi. A temporary studio reserved to artists, where two exclusive projects will be created during the event:

La Traversée: an artistic meeting between Quebec and France.

Four artists from here (Sara Dufour, Antoine Corriveau, Sophie Pelletier, Shawn Joibin) and four French artists (Pomme, Adrian Soleiman, Laura Cahen, Marvin Jouno) cross paths across the Atlantic to compose original songs and put on a show. After spending three days to refine everything at Studio Bell (June 8, 9 and 10), they await us on June 11 at 7 p.m. on the Bell stage to reveal the result!

Rapkeb Allstarz with Fouki, Koriass, Alaclair Ensemble, Rymz, Lary Kidd, Dead Obies, Taktika, Joe Rocca, Urban Science and Brown.

The idea behind Urban Science musicians’ collective was simple: bring together Rapkeb’s lively forces and make them rap while joining them in the most groovy way. See you on June 16 at 9 p.m. !

You will be able to follow the project’s evolution live on this page!

Last year, at Studio Bell…

The Francos hosted the Studio Bell, a creation and recording space made available to 4 groups of artists who each composed and recorded an original song. Thanks to its glass structure and connected technology, this unique site on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Bell Pavilion at the corner of Sainte-Catherine and Jeanne-Mance streets allowed festival goers to follow the process of creating works, on-site or live webcast.

You can download the 4 original songs composed at the ephemeral studio of the Francos 2017.
