Steve Bates is an artist and musician living in Montréal. His work listens to thresholds, boundaries and borders, points of contact and conflict. He is currently developing a multi-year project investigating historical and contemporary aspects of auditory hallucination. His work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States, Europe and Senegal. He works in the field, on the air, in museological/gallery and performance contexts. These shifting territories reflect the content of his practice.
