By combining video jockeying with the practice of DJ-ing, archives and original material can be presented in an experimental cut-up approach.

Artist Geronimo Inutiq has brought his audio-visual works into performance spaces as well as museums and art galleries, and has seen this base of video remix evolve to documentary video and experimental film.

During this talk Geronimo Inutiq will facilitate discussion on different topics in relation to the ideas presented while showing his video works "dubyadubs," "these apples," "winter," "yeah come on," "type amerindiens," "edmonton waterways" and super8 film "Man Goes to Park."

With this he hopes to provide a time and place for contemplation of different voices and alternative cosmogonies of a shared space called earth.
Geronimo Inutiq is an electronic music producer, performer, DJ, multi-media artist, and operator of the Indigene Audio independent tape label. Starting off as a hip hop producer in Quebec City with seminal Presha Pack crew in the mid-90s, Inutiq started further exploring electronic music production techniques through private research and at Concordia University. Known for his work as "madeskimo" - and helping innovate a fusion of Inuit throat-singing and drumming with electronic beats - Inutiq has also become recognized for doing video and visual art in the context of museum, galleries, and public exhibits. His work has been presented across Canada and internationally, including the Transmediale Festival in Berlin. Inutiq has remained socially involved - not just by representing Inuit peoples with his remixes and productions of Inuit traditional sounds and language that he performs - also through sharing his skills and experience in the context of workshops for indigenous community organizations. His work operating the Indigene Audio independent tape label continues to be a creative outlet for Inutiq and his friends from different areas around the world to continue producing independent music projects.
