Firmament éphémère / Ephemeral firmament
Aleas aroses from a reflection about how to materialise/draw sound with 3D images. It is a synthesis software, treating sounds and abstract images, able to create a dialogue with reality by using tactile sensors. Thus, it creates an interactive, sensitive relationship with the audience. It enables performers to create, modify, observe and manipulate moving 3D shapes. By manipulating the sensors, the performer can continuously step in on the whole structure by playing with the different variables: order, side-by-side positioning, overlapping, speed, rhythm, harmonic pitch…
Aleas interface reveals visual and sound performances to spectators. They see and hear on live various handling of the duet. Indeed, during interventions, the sound takes shape in the circular space of projection. Here the musical intervention is also an invitation to contemplation. Myriads of visual and sound shape are accumulating in hypnotic superpositions of sounds.
Each performance offers a new dialogue or visible duel. In the opposite of the standard veejaying and deejaying performances, the spectator follows exactly the musical and visual evolution as well as the performers. Here, everything is revealed and linked. The duel reveals moments of complicity, doubts, errors, chaos... but which constitute the origin of creation of these micros-universes. Each performance offers a multitude of possibles made by minimalist elements. The musical dialogue gives life to sound creations in suspension.
In connivance with repetitive music, the duo plays with unstable and reactive sounds. Scenocosme tries to immerse spectators in body experiment into a sound space favourable for daydream.
