Just found a scan of this page. It is the main bass flute theme to my Piece Transept for Percussion Trio, Flute Trio and Live Electronics. More information on this piece can be found here: http://leonmilo.com/det_transe.html Best to all, Leon.
"Paroles de Pas", by Francois Daudin Clavaud.
Recently did the real time sound prod. in max/msp & live in parallel for an oratorio in Nantes. Total harmony of workflow and hands-on for sound designer and engineer via screen sharing. One of us on Max, the other managing soundfile playback and live stage routings/mixes. Fabulous and stable..! The sound engineer was Stephane Brosse. Bravo Cycling 74 and Ableton!
Exhibition « Preliminaries » : design at the threshold of love.
an extension of a project on the theme of love, SLOTT gallery have invited four designers to play out their
fantasies, giving shape and meaning, breathing life into their
conceptions of preliminaries. They have approached this subject from
different and complementary viewpoints that together offer a panorama
of creation like no other seen before.
Levy's major part of this exhibition, for which I contributed sound and interactive programing, unveils his work on the spoken and the unspoken of intimate
relations with his series of installations entitled « Confessions »
that includes, among other elements, an examination of the iconography
of sexuality alongside a kind of modern home confessional.
Like the color of a sunset in mid-summer or the smell of Sunday
dinner, sound has an effect on our perception of the world and of ourselves. The
sound of our shower, experienced every morning but never heard, or a
response to a question which we could have only hoped for in an inner
voice, and heard in an unlikely context, places a spotlight on our lives
and emotions using a sense which is too often ignored.
Arik asked me to make what he now calls a "Voice Positivisor". What we see of this is a white computer screen and a microphone. On approching the screen, we see a faint line of text. When one speaks in to the mic we hear phrases spoken back to us by one of six voices which I recorded especially for this experience. Arik gave me 29 written phrases which were recorded independetly by 3 women and 3 men. One never knows which voice or which phrase will come back to us, but it is always a good surprise which leaves us feeling very positive and smiling! When the voice speaks, the corresponding text is shown on the white screen.
Other abience consisted of a multi track recording which I made during a dinner party hosted by the gallery owner the night before the opening in the exhibition space. I also recorded the sound of the gallery's shower, in the bathroom of the exhibition space. These sounds, contribute to the feeling of a most convivial and loving living environment!
It was an interesting acoustic addition and nice surprise to have diffused these sounds in the same resonant space to which they were recorded. It created a sonic unity and non-obtrusive quality which is at times difficult to achive when using ambient sound to accompany art and create a sonic environment.
To top off the sensory experience, Arik baked a cake in the gallery's kitchen for the opening, adding a warm and fabulous chocolate perfume to the evening!
As Arik said, we would all be better off, instead of saying to one another "Why don't you hug me?", we would just say, "Hug me!".
Here are a some images from the sound design programming for the exhibition.
Until February 12th, 2010.
Please contact me if you would like more information.
Best to all for a wonderful, loving New Year!
