expos 3 plus flyer

Empty Room is a beautiful 3D sound project i run since two years now – in collab with the french Spatial Media Lab in Paris and now with Le Cube center of digital arts of Issy-les-Moulineaux.

Come over and immerse yourself in  a virtual 3D environment, all made of sounds with an incredible sense of space.  Empty Room is an electroacoustic composition, entirely spatialised trough my virtual acousmonium directly embedded in the 3D scene, with a subtle sound design made on a dedicated analog modular system.

BEYOND don’t stare into bitmaps


BEYOND don’t stare into bitmaps is a visual and sonic installation, in tribute to Neal Stevenson’s  Snow Crash hero, Hiro Protagonist, “Last of the freelance hackers  and Greatest swordfighter in the world.”. The installation is build like a virtual 3D shaft you can stare inside and from where you can interact with Hiro, or not …  it’s all depending on his mood. When the interactions become too overwhelming, Hiro dissapear, exploding in thousands of particles disseminated into the void of the shaft. In addition to the 3D visual device there is large quadriphonic +1 sound surrounding coupled with a much more close in for the 2+1 shaft monitoring.

BEYOND don’t stare into bitmaps was present at the last NUIT BLANCHE in Paris in October 2014.
