Patrick Saint-Denis conceives interactive installations designed primarily for concert settings. His audio-sensitive inventions take on various forms, ranging from video installation to large-scale robotized machinery. His performances integrate various musical formations which sonically drive the installations. At the edges of the concert format and digital art, his works are also shown in exhibitions. He is currently course lecturer at University of Montreal where he teaches Visual Music and Physical Computing.
