Installation at Institute for Contemporary Arts (ICA),
London, from the 20th to the 26th of June 2006
In parallel of the ICAD
2006 conference I present the installation Visual Sound.
The installation presents a graphical interface that investigates
processes of contemporary composition, drawing on the works
of Iannis Xenakis and Sinan Bokesoy. The user interacts with
abstract shapes to organise sounds in time, thanks to a self-similarity
algorithm. The ambient sound is recorded and transformed according
to the user interaction. Visual sound is also part of a research
project on sound visualisation. More...

Ecoute at the Centre Pompidou, September 2004 - January 2005
of a musical creation workshop with childrens from 7 to 14 years-old.
The children have used the software Pompiloop, developed in
2004 for the exposition Ecoute. Thanks to this software, one
can create musical loops composed with existing samples and
sounds recorded by the children during the workshop. By associating
sounds with colors, the children know very quickly how to use
the software. After the 2-hours workshop, they all leave with
a CD of their work. You can listen to the following samples
1 : Flora, 10-year-old
piece 2 : Léo,
piece 3 : Siméon,
around the opera 'Angels in America' of Peter Eötvös
at the theatre du Châtelet, November 2004
creation around the opera 'Angels in America'. Working with
a dozen of european artists from the opera of Sweden, Hungary;
Lituany, Belgium and France with two high school classes from
Bruxelles and Paris. After a eight-day work, we have presented
a creation implying the children and another creation implying
the artists. Collaboration with the swedish baryton David Johansson.
