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

In this video, the members of SLIBER reflect on their visit to the PHI North residency. in 2023 and deliver an electric performance that will transport you into their world.

Each year, the PHI North residency for Quebec musicians welcomes 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.

PHI Residences PHI Nord Laureates2023 24 Sliber


Sliber, composed of Prince Kouame and Tristan Sendji, was formed two years ago. The group's origin is based on experimentation and the desire to create immersion while expressing the inexpressible through feelings, technology, and sounds.

The result is harmonious and immersive music coming from the symbiosis of different genres. They aim to bring people together from various communities by offering an experience on all levels; sound, visual, and physical.

Follow them on a journey of innovation and experimentation with art. Their trajectory is a guide for those with an atypical path but, above all, for those who find themselves in a space of shared connection.


PHI North offers musicians the opportunity to produce, explore, experiment, and refine their artistic project.

Selected participants are granted a two-week creative retreat at a riverside lodge in the Laurentian mountains featuring exclusive access to a recording studio with in-house engineer and technical assistance.

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.
