End-of-residency performance at KIAC

End-of-residency performance as Artist-in-Residence at Klondike Institute of Art & Culture.

Double-Tranchant @ KIAC
Double-Tranchant, meaning double-edged in French, is a solo show-installation for invented, found and automated instruments made with object that can cut, with real-time processing in a quadriphonic setting.

A piece for musical saws, stemsaws*, automated circular saw blades*, automated mobile of knifes*, automated electric musical saws* and other sharp found instruments with a live electronics setup that is a subtle gradient between playing an electronic instrument and playing with an algorithmic “musician” using a concept of indirect control by layers of flexible automations.

Double-Tranchant is a commentary on the contrast between the brute, the sharp and the flexible, the fascinating.

This piece is a long term project that has recently received the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. The residency at KIAC is to work on the code for the live electronics setup, working on the form of the show and composition in this really inspiring environment and to find some new sonic material with the help of Dawson community.

During the residency at Titanik Paço-Rocchia is working on the form of the show and the composition. She has focused on looking for new sonic material and on working on the code for the live electronics setup.
