Dé de dense .3 is a experimental multimedia performance, containing visual work, moving image, video, performance, poetry, sonic art and music.
Michel Smith and I received a commission from Pascale Malaterre to make the music/sonic art part of this street theatre show.
I was using 6 big boxes as control interface for my music. These boxes contain accelerometers and they positions were determining the type of sound that was going to be heard.
I did tape, live computer music and played bassoon live for this performance.
This show have been premièred in Paris, 25th and 26th of June 2010, at Square Émile Chautemps - near the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers. Production was by Pascale Malaterre and 2r2c.
Sticky Sticky Pathways was for one week at The Shunt, in London (7 performances)
As it is a space specific work it is quite different from the premiere last March.
Contemporary dance/movement & music improvisation/live art/sound art performance and installation.
Sticky Pathways is an unfolding labyrinth of rambling dimensions and slanted reflections where people exist on the cusp of dream and reality.

Sticky Pathways was as well an installation that was including a 8 channels music track, a lot of solo tape and a frame with some headphones. Here three extracts of the 45 minutes long music track.
piece for performer/singer and box with live electronics
On the box, there is the score. The score does not contain just musical instructions but also contains some indications about the orientation of the box: "This way up".
While the performer is performing the piece, s/he have to change the orientation of the box following the score.
The live electronics changes depending of the orientation of the box.
This piece, as a work and progress form, has been presented at Around This House - Happening in the Library
