Francis Theberge


Active since 2001, TiND (thisisnotdesign) is a video art group renowned on the Montreal scene for having developed their own techniques for live audiovisual creation. By hijacking common analog audio equipment such as the distortion pedal, TiND creates singular imagery that visually echoes the original sound material.

Their live performances are laboratories for real-time experimentation: a perfect mix of controlled improvisations with prepared interventions and mastered errors. Francis Theberge is the main character behind TiND.

Francis Theberge is also a long-time member of the artist collectives Global Noise Movement and Adventurous Music. He is also known as Thibörg.

You can find excerpts of his work on this portfolio, vimeo and mixcloud.
