For 2 days I gave a Seismik workshop to Seoul children’s. from 10 to 16 years old. They was very intrigued about the subject. And we built a Teensy interface that connect to an OpenFrameWork application based on the one I use for my performances.

We play at the Simon Fraser University in the FEI & MILTON WONG EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE. Such a good and beautifull place.

INKUBATOR .03

June 7th, 2015

immerson is included in the BIAS – International Sound Art Biennal – June 4th & 5th 2015

The curator/artist France Jobin invited to create and play a new piece at Immerson event at the Oborro center. In the same evening Mika Vanio, Nicolas Bernier and John Duncan presented their piece. No visual. The sound system was designed by Stephane Claude, a famous sound ingeneer in Montreal. THE SYSTEM IS A 6.1 SURROUND IMMERSIVE INSTALLATION WITH SMALL STEREO SPEAKERS ADDED ON THE CEILING FOR “SHOWER” AUDIO EFFECTS. So, I created a new 20 minutes audio piece just for this event. 2 nights june 5 and 6th. II was not quite satisfied with my room on the first night. So I took another approach for the second night, and I must say I am quite happy with this new approach.

For Inkubator.02 performance, I took some electronic devices from the one I presented at ElectroShock in last april. But I work in a more fluidity way between all electronic laboratories. For this special Mutek Play2 evening the thema was about obsolete devices. So I took with me Metal plates, Motors, Old Television, sensors, Electricity Modules and I improvised by group of devices. Feedback, Electricity freezing, Cathodic Lights.

SEISMIK > INTERSTICE

May 21st, 2015

May 13th, I performed SEISMIK+AFTERSHOCK at Interstice festival. A very warm audience. A few days before, I got my technique steal suitcase, my audio interface, my controllers, geophone, antenna, everything. Fortunately my computers and my modular were in a second suitcase. Cancel my performance was thought, then with the festival team dynamics, we have traveled all over town to remanufacture and buy my accessories midi controllers. Phew !!!! Narrowly, I managed to present Aftershock and Seismik. My reward was this warm and enthusiastic audience.

EKOS_WORKSHOP

May 16th, 2015

Durant 2 mois [ de mars à mai], j’ai élaboré et donné avec Mickael Lafontaine un workshop avec les jeunes de l’école Marguerite De Lajemmerais. Travailler avec des étudiantes hyper motivées sous le chapeau de leur enseignante Anne-Claire Morin fut une expérience vraiment stimulante pour moi. Un workshop qui s’articulait autour de la collecte de son, son traitement en temps réel, des expérimentations sur la physicalité audio avec des transducteurs et des chimies, un apprentissage au coding, des expériences pratiques en prises de vues vidéo, etc etc. Un 2 mois très chargé qui a culminé vers une performance à la Place des Arts. Une performance d’un niveau artistique et professionnel dont nous tous sommes très fiers. Bravo les filles !!!!!!!!!

Cette véritable équipe s’est unie sous le nom de EKOS collectif. Création live d’écosystèmes chimiques et numériques. Ékos sculpte en direct le son et la lumière afin de créer des paysages macroscopiques filmés en direct.

J’ai eu aussi le privilège de donné une mini conférence avant mes performances. Expliquant avec schéma la technique de chacun des laboratoires. photos de Louis Dufort et Diva Valou.
