    "Égregore source" is an edition that transpose a performance work of the chdh collective on digital media: the source code of the "egregore" performance is made fully available as a software to download or as a usb key. Beyond the documentary aspect, this edition aims to exploit the physical dispersion of this digital support, in order to develop a broadcasting structure for a networked audiovisual performance. The multiple personal computers hosting the software constitute a distributed "stage", where the artists will be able to interpret "egregore" remotely by sending a data flow that activate the provided software. These control data are then stored on a server, and remain accessible and usable with the software. http://www.chdh.net/egregore_source.php

      This paper investigates the manifold potentials of paradromic ("running alongside") sonic practices which take advantage of temporal leakages induced by chronoportative modes typical of late capitalist musico-affective predation. The transition from earworm-slogans to brand-passwords is symptomatic of a heightened propensity towards the arresting of time, indispensable for effective capture in an era where colloidal electrification schizophonically distributes convulsively recombinant signals, multiplying vectors of contamination. A surfeit of cybernetically circulated affect engenders a concomitant profusion of molar, primed, cyber-affordant synchronicities from which can be ferreted out more intransigent, latent, molecular synchronicities. Indeed, a molecular, parasitic listening process may hold the key, detecting continuities occluded by the parcelization of time stealthily prosecuted by the möbius modality—ferrying a creeping normalization of micro-strategies of control—by isolating accidents, discrepancies, vagrant concretions that might be productively exploited. Algorithmically-fueled, networked technologies can accelerate ejection from the tight, noise-absorbent negative feedback of capitalist modulation, by kairotically deploying psychedelic ("made manifest to the mind") adjacencies, instantiating temporary musical agglomerations by haphazard temporal and spatial proximities. The distracted attention (usually negatively valenced) which characterizes the perceptual landscape of the 21st century enables new, unsuspected entities to spring into effectiveness, through a form of niching, the mutual imbrication, folding-in of elements whose genetic structures are subliminally compatible but overtly incongruent. A mutant rhythmanalysis, simultaneously fracturing and resynthesizing, can pressure memory retention, dislocate bodily time from clock time, preempt the normalization cycle by introducing figures into a not-yet-primed ground, leveraging music's occult proclivities to induce leakage of an unadumbrated future.

            3 extracts from the egregore performance by chdh - "Égrégore" means an energy produced by the desires of many individuals in a common goal. This is the starting point of this audiovisual performance that aims to exploit the group movement phenomenas. Complex and expressive behaviors are generated and controlled by a computer and transcribed in sound and image. A crowd of particles deploys itself, reorganizes, blends into living structures more or less coherent, evolving from a chaotic movement toward a cohesive group. This project is a continuation of chdh’s work on audiovisual instruments, but aims to radicalize the research. - snapshots here: http://www.chdh.free.fr/spip.php?article34 and infos here: http://www.chdh.net/egregore - updated the 15.08.2011 with HD extracts
