Mutek set-up

May 27th, 2010

I took the day to prepare my audio set-up for mutek Ectoplasm3, curated by eric mattson _ june 3th. I will improvise with Jean-Pierre Aubé that will use live frequency interference captations. Kind of airwaves spy. On my side, I will create some tectonic ambiances ( large scale motions of Earth’s lithosphere ) from my field recordings archive. To play with these field recordings, I set-up today a special EctoPlate instrument that can produce friction texture’s and can also activate ( by few pressure sensors ) my field recordings.
There some picts of my today laboratory. If the tests are fairly conclusive, I will improve this tectonic instrument for next Thursday. I recorded also my first test improvisation, it’s near near 35min. I like very much the overall feel.

May 25th, 2010

With the beautifull weather, we decided this week end going to Montmagny _ a little city near Quebec city. One reason was taking time in the countryside for the birthday anniversary of Eva ::: and on the other end because she finded for my new installation series call WINDFIELDS lots of used accordeons near the accordeon museum of montmagny. We didn’t know this little village is a very important place for the accordeon international communauty. She organise for me an appointment with one of the best artisanal accordeon builder and repair shop. I was very happy to bring back lots of old and beautifull accordeons. This installation in plan to be presented in september in Korea.

thank’s to Fanny, Ben and Sam for their support and kepping spirit and energy until the end. They finally upgrade the projector not without lots of technical problems, but at the end the audience had a great technical context.
