Multimedia Show


About the multimedia show

Erik West Millette’s project, West Trainz, is the fruition of roughly 20 years of travel, exploration and formal work. Above all, it is meant as a tribute to the major transcontinental express trains. Over the years, his pieces have drawn from the train’s « trance-like » effect, blending instrumental composition and concrete railway music.

This cinematic process gives rise to a retro-futuristic multimedia show that presents a poetic vision of the railway world. Trainz also has a visuel component that features artifacts collected over the course of the artist’s travels. The project certainly does not have the pretension of ambition of depicting world cultures; rather, it offers a journey through them.
