Empty Room from Lebanon to Singapor

Not much time left since a year and a half for blogging. Empty Room and all the research going along went on a fast pace and it still is going this way. We are very happy and proud to have made major improvements to the project wich runs now on a really full 3D ambisonic + Binaural techniques. We also went from Oculus DK2 to HTC Vive upgrading in quality and rendering, thus improving the overall quality of perception.
For more in depht details concerning the projetc please read this article : The Empty Room project and the following scientific publication : Empty Room, how to compose and spatialize electroacoustic music in VR in ambisonic and binaural also referenced referenced in HAL The International Journal of Virtual Reality.
Our journey went trough : Happy Cube Day at the CUBE d’Issy les Moulineaux, Beyrout Le Cube “The french digital artspace” exhibition, colloque Stéréoscopie at Louis Lumière, FISM 2016 (Forum International du Son Multicanal), Edesta Paris 8, Festival Virtuality 2017, VRIC Laval Virtual 2017, Imagina Sciences Annecy 2017, National Museum of Singapor Digimuse VR showcase 2017.

MOTM – Monument of the Memory – LeLivre Art Publishing – New-York

Monotype 20

I was invited by Adele Jancovici, founder of LeLIvre ArtPublishing to produce a special sound work for the launching of Paolo Canevari’s MOTM – Monument of The Memory – a serie of 20 black and white monotypes. Launching is private and will take place in New-York 19th February 2015 :

The new abstract monotype etchings by Canevari will be presented during a private one-night event, inviting viewers to an intimate and multi-sensorial experiencing of the art.

To provide a contemplative space, the exhibition space will be filled with the fragrance of candles designed in collaboration with Canevari.

Throughout the viewing an original ambient soundscape inspired by Monuments of the Memory and created by noted composer Christine Webster will resonate within the room.

The monochromatic hors d’oeuvres and drinks offered during the reception, together with the sound and scent, will make it a night to remember.

The invitation-only reception will take place February 19 at the Refectory at the High Line Hotel, New York, followed by private viewings at the Hotel’s salon through February 22.

Monotype 19

It was a pleasure to collaborate with Miss Jancovici and her team, we both share the same connection to Louise Bourgeois and Paolo Canevari’s Monotype blow my mind. It was very inspiring.

Adding to the experience is a ten-minute loop of sound that plays all night long. As Jancovici explains, “It puts you back in the womb and it takes you out. It is a game of opposites, of unity and uniqueness. The sound envelops you, it embraces you, and it pushes you out. It makes you both feel at home and uncomfortable. It is not music, but it is a sound. We had a musician, Christine Webster, produce it. I gave her a list of words that I had in mind, words like heartbeat, white noise, and universe, and I sent those words along with the images. I told her to create it as a gesture of open arms. She produced something that brought me to tears. It is very rare that you can tell someone that they understood exactly what you wanted and have done better than you could have imagined possible. The works are vibrating energetically, and that translates into a sound and a scent. MOTM is a story of intimacy, of interpersonal relationships. It demands that a person be there and explain the work to you personally.
