Quentin Aurat — 2014
Exhibition 'Itérations" at La Véranda (st-Jean de Braye, France).
dipôle is a sound and video installation that explore the relation between reflexion and resonance. Metal plate are used in sound design to simulate some naturals sounds like storm or create a plate reverb effect. I used this material the same way, but my intention was to make a silent film of myself manipulate the plate like a visual instrument that reflect the offscreen in different contexts and landscape. Then, I build a simple electromagnetic system abble to make sound by moving the same plate according a score I write from the film editing. This instrument are sychronized on the film events and respond them by his sound, like a musician playing upon a silent film.
