1. "Transitions" est un projet d'aménagement global des anciennes usines Brossette pour le festival Nuits Sonores 2013. La scénographie de cette 11ème édition est organisée autour de deux dispositifs architecturaux articulant les parcours.

    Avec le concours de "IsthisGood?", nous avons imaginé le dispositif "Transition³" comme un mouvement émanant du sol capable d'organiser les transitions physiques et visuelles entre l'intérieur et l'extérieur. Véritable belvédère habitable, cette "pyramide" est un objet dynamique qui invite le festivalier à la pause. Il lui permet de prendre une hauteur de vue sur l'événement, sur ses 10 000 usagers quotidiens et les différentes spatialités qui leurs sont proposé de parcourir à l'échelle de la friche. Les animations visuelles et lumineuses sont parametriquement générées par la densité et le mouvement des usagers du dispositif.

  2. is this good? were invited to create an interactive installation at Nuits Sonores, an electronic music and art festival in Lyon, France, in May 2013.

    We worked alongside Lyon-based Architects lookingforarchitecture.com to create a huge interactive pyramid.

    A matrix of 6 Kinect cameras tracked people as they moved across the pyramid, triggering DMX lighting in the structure and generative graphics on the screens above.

    Special thanks to Pierre-Marie Oullion and Alexis Bergeron from Nuits Sonores, and to Robin Accard from Partizan for making it happen

  3. Scanner invited us to perform our Scanner Piano at the Scanner curated Spitalfields Music Festival. If you like scanners or the word scanner, or Scanner, you might like this.

    Annette Jezierska played an arrangement of John Dowland's Lachrimae. We think the scanner is a melancholy kind of peripheral.

    Many thanks to Scanner, Kate Kelly and all at spitalfieldsmusic.org.uk for having us!

    Many thanks to Jamie Durand for filming the video.

  4. An audio visual installation in association with Schwartz Flavour Shots, an innovative new
    range of herb and spice blends locked in oil. What does flavour look like? How does it
    sound? These are the questions that inspired herb and spice experts, Schwartz, to create
    what they describe as a ‘Sonic Flavourscape'.

    Several tons of black peppercorns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chilli
    and coriander were rigged to explode in perfect sync with a bespoke musical composition.
    Each explosion represents an individual piano note or chord, which when filmed at high
    speed, creates a surreal three dimensional sound scape.

    The project bought together an eclectic collective of creative collaborators. DJ/Producer
    MJ Cole was approached to translate the sensation of taste into a musical composition.
    Film maker Chris Cairns and pyrotechnic designers, ‘Machine Shop’, then went to work
    turning this sound into a physical scale.
