Avec le début et la fin
Improvised music has been at the core of our artistic activities for many years. We have both developed interactive electronic systems to accompany our approach to instrumental improvisation with computers. We favor real-time performance, so there are no pre-recorded samples or after-the-fact studio work. The hyperflute is a concert flute linked to a computer by motion detectors. These sensors allow the performer to control electronic sound treatment parameters while playing and thus create many electroacoustic sound worlds. This recording also features an audio incarnation of the radioglyph generator, a concept meant to actualize the attention of improvisers in action. Like a basso continuo, this robotic synthesizer oscillates between frequencies/distances according to indirect influences.
