MADESKIMO - Live DJ set
Madeskimo is the project of Geronimo Inutiq - electronic music producer, DJ and multimedia artist. Originally from Iqaluit, his musical explorations are at the crossroads of different traditional and modern cultural currents - creating an experimental platform through which he processes sounds of the world. Madeskimo’s music draws on the use of instruments, digital and analog synthesizers, as well as the remixing and processing of samples from a large variety of sources—including traditional inuit, aboriginal, and modern electronic, and urban music—in order to create an experimental platform. He has performed in many festivals internationally and his work has been exhibited in group exhibitions in Canada and Switzerland. He has studied anthropology and sociology at Concordia University, and is an active member of the Aboriginal community in Montreal.
