Multimedia Installation

Sonic Trails : Lockdownwas first conceived as a sound installation, raising questions related to artificial intelligence, music and concrete vs. abstract beauty.The first exhibition of the multimedia version, created together with Max Sandred, was part of the 2021 Venice Biennale.

Percussion, live electronics and live video processing

My composition Mimétisme explores the interaction between performance, video and audio processing. It uses 15 contact microphones and 3 video cameras to capture the performance. The comission is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, and is for the percussionists Jonny Axelsson (Sweden) and Victoria Sparks (Canada).
