Jean Routhier has had audio leanings since his first contact with his family's tape recorder.
Routhier is an audio wrapper, his approach is similar to a store clerk, bagging everything into the sonic essence. Interested in the gaps and gasps in sounds conducive to the transmission of tales he sometimes hears in the ether, Routhier finds inspiration in everyday situations.
Born in Montréal, Québec, where he completed a BFA at Concordia University(1993), he is presently based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
