I wanted to thank you :
– Philippe, Pedro & Sabrina / Technè
– Nicolas Debade & Julien & Nicolas / GRIM
– Aurélie & Julien & Manon / Alter Echoes
– Anne & David
– Alex & Lucia
So we did it.
At first in this report-like post, I want to thank massively and infinitely:
– François Larini, without him, this project wouldn’t have been done at all and I wouldn’t have met a very great person and curator. I really looking forward to continue to work with him,
– Marie-Claude Beaud, NMNM’s Director and a very impressive and amazing person,
– Pierre & Gary from The Centre of Attention in London for hosting the installation in their place,
– GMEM in which I prepared and tested the project itself,
– NMNM’s people for their kindness, interest and precious help
I spent a couple of days in London to install DISRUPT!ON on previous week. It was a really nice moment: the one when everything comes to life.
Then I tested and tried to find the sound that fitted the most my intention. Pierre, the gallery’s owner and François were there to help me and support my work. They were nice moments !
Here are some pictures taken after the moment where I said: “ok I’m ok now!”
Then, the Friday 28th March, I played the live performance in Monaco at Nouveau Musée National de Monaco. While I was performing, I was focused on visuals & sound in Monaco, tweaking the sound and trying to find the edge and the fragility of the right tension and moment. The nice thing which have been a bit hard to explain to the audience was that each parameter I was tweaking was also sending numerical values through internet to the installation in London. This latter was reacting by changing, moving and evolving on a way I didn’t even know in Monaco, as I didn’t have the vision of what it was happening there.
Here are some pictures shot by Fiorella del Prato and Élodie Biancheri from NMNM. They have been shot using mobile phones. I’m waiting for pictures from Monaco TV which made us an interview with François Larini. They also shot parts of the performance, apparently.
You can retrieve other pictures on my FB page here.
Here are 3 videos captured by Élodie from NMNM:
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.
