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...

Exposition Ecoute at the Centre Pompidou, September 2004 - January 2005

Animation 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 :

piece 1 : Flora, 10-year-old
piece 2 : Léo, 11-
year-old
piece 3 : Siméon, 7-year-old
