A look into the inner workings of the residences through the eyes of its artists

Gene Tellem unveils the creative process with her band, including the musical composition and the contribution of each musician to their songs, during her visit to the PHI North Residency. Afterwards, her band delivers a beautiful and colourful performance that will transport you to another world.

In 2022, the PHI North Residency for Quebec musicians welcomed four artists for two-week creative retreats in a riverfront loft in the Laurentian Mountains. This residency offers an opportunity to produce, explore, and experiment in a fully immersive, intimate, and peaceful setting within a nature-based recording studio.

We wanted to immortalize these moments by allowing the artists to share their feelings and discoveries. A journey to the heart of the residences through their eyes.

About the artist

Whether she's taking centre stage as a DJ or working in the studio, Gene Tellem communicates her interpretation of house and techno with soul and playfulness, intuitively balancing the intellectual and the physical. Her productions are usually born out of the imagination and energy associated with electronic music events. She released her first output “Who Says No” in 2017 on Montreal's SOBO label, which later led to two releases on the London-based Wolf Music label. Gene Tellem then launched her own label, Bienvenue Recordings, in 2019, making her way among the most influential players in the international house scene.

PHI NORTH

PHI North offers musicians the opportunity to produce, explore, experiment and refine an artistic project. Selected participants are granted a two-week creative retreat at a riverside lodge in the Laurentian mountains featuring exclusive access to a state-of-the-art recording studio, with in-house engineer and technical assistance, and support from PHI’s team of multidisciplinary experts.

Specifically oriented for Quebec-based artists, this residency provides a much needed escape from the everyday in order for participants to completely immerse themselves in their artistry.
