Thanks to GMEM and Christian, Sarah & Jérôme especially.
I can say I finished the setup of DISRUPT!ON in their studios.
If you remember correctly, you already know that DISRUPT!ON is both an installation & live performance.
The installation will be setup in London at News of the world 50 Resolution Way, Deptford, London SE8 4NT and visible from 27th March to 13th April 2014.
The live performance will take place at Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, Villa Paloma, 56, boulevard du Jardin Exotique 98000 Monaco
Here is the first exclusive official excerpt of the live performance.
For further details, stay tuned on the newsletter. One will be popped out on next days…
My friends and I enjoyed the show and especially, we appreciated Frank Vigroux performance and Alva Noto. Franck’s performance demonstrated a perfect control of larsens, bursts of noise, distorsted cold beats and much more. Carsten Nicolai delivered a very clean and clickful live set with very minimalistic but amazing visuals too.
Sarah and Christian from GMEM proposed me to meet Carsten himself, which I did backstage after his live performance. We discussed a very bit and I enjoyed the moment talking about visuals & electronic music with him. François Larini, who is curating my project disrupt!on & !mpulse was there too and explained to him the why/what about these both projects.
Here are some pictures from REEVOX 2014:
I have started a couple of days ago my Artist-In-Residence program at GMEM – CNCM in Marseille.
GMEM stands for Groupe de Musique expérimentale de Marseille and CNCM stands for Centre National de Création Musicale.
What am I doing there exactly ?
A residence program is a support for any creation in progress. That can be a financial support, or material support, or anything supporting.
In my case, GMEM hosts me in one of their studio and provides me the right number of speakers I need for preparing !mpulse live performance. The installation disrupt!on related to !mpulse doesn’t require (finally) more than 2 speakers + 1 sub so I can prepare it at the same place.
But a residence is also a particular moment when you can focus only on your project during a limited time interval. This is really important for being productive, even if you already have a place to work.
I already finished the global structure of !mpulse system.
- a particular live set in Live that is only my way to change custom Reaktor’s synths & sequencers presets
- JACK OSX for internal routing purpose from Live to Max
- a (big) Max patch analyzing audio coming from Live, spatializing things and generating visuals
disrupt!on installation is almost based on the same system but is an autonomous and generative system design for generating sound & visuals. It is intended to be shown in London at The Enclave / News of the world gallery
I’m finishing that residence mid March, then I’ll perform on Friday 28th March in Monaco and the installation will be visible from 28th to 11th April in London.
This week, I visited the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco and especially Villa Paloma.
I met again my curator François Larini and also the Museum’s Director Marie-Claude Beaud and discussed about art & how to exhibit art. It was a real interesting meeting.
We decided about the place where the performance will occur and I have to confess that this is a REALLY NICE place.
No reflections on the wall, small sized room, deep black, I will be able to perform in real interesting conditions with a pure sound & a very big screen.

Just reminding you that will be an audiovisual live performance in Monaco, related to an digital and generative installation exhibition in London at the same moment. The performance will take place on Friday 28th March in Villa Paloma/Monaco and the exhibition will be at News of the World Gallery in London (related to The Enclave) for two weeks from the same Friday 28th March.
Here are some pictures taken by François Larini yesterday:
Here is also a picture taken by me, with a very small part of my computer’s wizardry:
Some of you are following me tightly. They already read and know about ALPHA, my new a/v live performance, exploring further uses of complex beats layering & real-time sequences generation as the the same time as sound reactive visualization.
The others have to know, now.
The official page is : http://julienbayle.net/works/creation/alpha
alpha is the code name of a series of live performance planned for 2014.
It involves sounds, visuals, algorithmic & controlled sequencing for providing a unique experience where both sounds & visuals aren’t limited by usual codes & borders, allowing the audience to be completely immersed into a strongly tight & dense matter.
From physical approach of sounds to algorithmic sequencing, alpha a/v live performance explores sounds & visuals fields as much as data processing.
Here are early pictures captured from first live performance real test. Obviously, you have to see it while hearing sounds and that will immerse yourself inside alpha’s universe deeply. Please subscribe to my youtube channel, this is the best way to keep connected tightly to information about it (twitter and fb too for more texts and descriptions)
Here is the video list channel that will be updated all along the live composition and prototyping and real-time tests.
Here are some visual artwork captured during tests too.
