Installation "Machine à écrire" - Piano / projection / electromécanique / écran lcd. Exposition solo "Intérieur" à la Galerie Charlot. Paris Octobre-décembre 2016
"Typewriter 1" is a self-generative installation consisting of an electro-mechanical piano controlled by a computer, two screens and a watchmaking device also connected to a computer operating in network with that of the piano. The clock, thanks to its balance, delivers a pulse every second towards the other elements of the installation. At each of these pulses, the screen shows an image fragment randomly chosen by the computer. After some images have been generated, a sentence appears at the bottom of the clock screen and then breaks into disparate words against the top edge of the screen. The piano starts playing a musical proposal generated by the computer assigned to it. Always different, this music is built on the basis of algorithms constrained by conditional rules and random parameters. The pitch and velocity of the notes played by the piano generates an abstract "score" that is projected above the piano.
