Slush Music // Music Tech Fest

Adrew Dubber : "Coming down after an amazing #MTFLabs week with some of the most brilliant people I know - most of whom had never met or worked together before, and yet managed to put together an incredible orchestrated performance in just a few days in the lead up to Slush 2017. It featured sounds generated live from the brainwaves of a blind singer, rhythm from the heartbeat of audience members, music grabbed from the air by a cyborg using her microchip implants, drumming (and more) by computer games producers, complex coding and datastream management by experts from Finland, Iran, Portugal and beyond, stunning pixelmapped visuals, and groundbreaking registration of all complex creative intellectual property rights live and in real time on the blockchain."

Incredible 4 days Hackaton with an incredible team, in Helsinki during the Slush Music !!

Durham // Lumières - [METHODS] Pablo Valbuena

Another fabulous project we had the chance to participate with Pablo Valbuena. From the 16th to the 18th of November, we created technological tools to the last piece that Pablo Valbuena has been conceiving on the incredible monument that is Durham Cathedral. Here a teaser about the installation.

Grand Palais // Silmo // Romain Tardy

During the Nuits blanches in Paris, we connected Ledotron with robotic moving heads lights, to see how could we play with them using fun algorithms. What a perfect place to try it than the Grand Palais in Paris. What an emotion to get into that incredible architecture from the begging of the last century, right next to the Champs Elysée.

Sharjah Light Festival // Maestro

Maestro is project we have been working on for TigreLab, and Nomada, at the  in February 2017. For this interactive mapping we had as a canvas a nearly half kilometer wide building. Probably the larger interactive mapping ever done.

On the podium, only one user at a time could interact and make the building animate thanks to the movement of their hands. 

Team : TigreLab for art direction and videos, Hand Coded for creating real-time animation and audio process, Sound Object for sound design, Protopixel for making the interactive surface

Hand Coded Team : Cyril Laurier, Maya Benainous, Stephanie Huerre, Joan Sandoval

OX // Video

At last a video of OX where you can visualise whats the "sensitive" machine is really doing when listening to the live music. There is no editing, everything is audio reactive, all composition is  made and manage by the machine, that control, screen, LEDS and motors. We are so proud about the result and we are looking forward to adapt the system to any kind of instalation to control, light, mapping,... anything ^_^

Kinematope // Paisaje Tecnico

One year ago like today, we were setting up this amazing installation for Pablo Valbuena. That was at the Telefonica's foundation in Madrid. An amazing experience with an amazing artist. No video were available at the time, now there is:

House of Beautiful

The Mobile World Congress was in Barcelona last week. Since crowds of visitors come from all over the world, it's a great opportunity for companies to set up special events. This year Marc Mertens from A 100 Years in Los Angeles invited us to design an installation for the "House of Beautiful Business" pop-up event he was co-organizing in the "Casa de la Seda". 

Part of this event, the "Future is Beautiful" workshop invited the audience to envision the world we will live in in a 100 years by having us travel in time and take a look at the state of the world a 100 years ago. We needed a way to capture and share our beautiful creations of the future.

This door is a symbol of the steps to be taken to get to the future we imagine. The back of the door depicts the reality of the world 100 years ago in 1917. The front of the door represents the future in 2117, showcasing the visions generated during the workshop. The color that seems to be coming out of the half-opened door, capture the intimacy of the emotion that is hidden behind the visions we captured.

Special thanks to Studio Alis for helping us with the door.

Kinematope [Pommery] // Pablo Valbuena

Nuit Blanche // Brussels _ Gyrotope

If you're around Brussels next saturday night (1st of October). You can discover Gyrotope on the Esplanade of the European Parlement, an art piece created by Pablo Valbuena. In which we helped in the development of all technical creative tools for light and sound thanks to Ledotron. You'll probably see Cyril Laurier around there.

ABOUT GYROTOPE :

Gyrotope is a large circle of columns that describes a sculptural volume unfolding over time. It uses ephemeral and intangible materials -light and sound- to formalize an experience based on motion perception. It develops spatially the principles of film: a number of discrete elements becoming a continuous sequence. Gyrotope functions as a perimeter that can be traversed. The work shifts between object and environment depending on the observer’s position inside or outside the circle. Gyrotope was originally created for the Grand Paris Express.

When: Saturday 1st October, 7:00 pm > 3:00 am

WhereEsplanade of the European Parlement - Brussels

> Special thanks to Jesse Watts for his help on the audio patch.
