Messier's work takes shape through the relationship between sound and material (objects or bodies). Messier constantly redefines the frontiers of concrete music by creating sounds with everyday life objects, self-designed machines as well as bodies in movement. At the very centre of this dialogue between sounds and objects is the desire to push the everyday imaginary a little further, to magnify these entities by giving them a voice and by reinventing their function. Messier also produces collaborative work mixing dance and music. Here, through a reversed hierarchical relationship, music becomes the choreography's driving force. Martin Messier presented his work in more than 20 national festivals and events. He received a distinction at the prestigious Ars Electronica 2010, and has been nominated at the Prix Opus 2012 and the Prix Victor-Martyn-Lynch-Staunton 2013.
