Fragments@43-44

Picture a futuristic and innovative show, where body and machine, in constant dialogue with each other, merge in a single entity. The real and the virtual interact to give birth to both visual shapes and raw emotions.

The hypnotic performance that is Fragments#43-44 blends musical improvisation, cinematic soundscapes as well as visuals generated on the fly by an intriguing new body language: predefined gestures are used to trigger and transform sounds which influence visual projections, which in turn also influence the sounds that generated them.

While close to the avant-garde and using cutting edge digital technology, Fragments#43-44 is a stunning and immersive sensory experience, which remains accessible to all.

35th BIFFF Cloture 16.04 (7)

Fragments#43-44 has already been showcased at Ars Musica (Brussels), Le Printemps des Poètes (Quebec), Digital Art Festival Taipei (Taiwan), Vidéoformes (Clermont-Ferrand), Festival International d’Art Vidéo de Casablanca, Bains Numériques (Enghien-les-Bains, part of the International Competition), Musée d’art moderne Grand-Duc Jean (MUDAM, Luxembourg), La Nuit immersive (Lyon, / Nuits Sonores), Bozar Salle Henry Le Boeuf, closing night of the BIFFF (Brussels)…

a) One setup for three propositions:

– A 35 minute show, followed if desired by a Q&A and try-outs by the audience;

An installation where visitors are free to pass and let their imaginations wander;

A workshop (in English or French) on the topic of “invisible instruments” and their connections with sound-design, specifically in genre cinema.

b) What are the system’s advantages?

Light travels: it all fits in a backpack.

Very short set-up and dismantling times. The whole disposal can be ready in an hour and taken down in half that time.

2° What we will need in order to present you this performance:

– A clear space of about 6×6 m that can be brought to near total darkness. However, alternatives exist for smaller venues (see attached illustration).

– A screen (4×2 m minimum)

– A high definition projection system. The projector needs to be attached to the ceiling (short focal length), otherwise a rear projection should be considered (best option). Movie theater configurations work perfectly, with the video projected from the booth. The performer’s shadow shall not appear on screen.

A set of 4 or 8 speakers (either active or passive with amplification).

– A microphone stand to place the motion detector camera.

– A computer screen (VGA or HDMI).
