Ultraviolet is an improvised performance audio / video.
Brutal minimalism and low-fi aesthetic characterizes this singular proposition. The musician Jerome Montagne and the filmmaker Philippe Fontes do nothing more than using tanning lamps and a mixer (no input).
Since their first collaborations, more "filmic”, the duo has always wondered about the possible coherence between sound and image. With Ultra-violet they create a "harmonious object" where the glass tube fluorescent, its cold color and its light impact logically, bind the textures and the timbre of an electric mixer with no input. The aim of this formal bias is to make sensitive and less ambiguous possible the interactions picture / sound.
Philippe Fontes : video device
He became a photographer by his own, using video since the 90's. At this time his passion for musical improvisation led him to work with a lot of musicians and composers. In year 2004 he co-created the PLUSMOINS collective, in wich he always works nowadays.
Jérôme Montagne : mixing table
He uses for his compositions an only mixing table locked on itself. He likes to mix frequencies, white noise and binary rythmes in an abstract form of improvisation, so the machine is able to reveal his secret noises, in an electric and silent weather of emotional strain.
