OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING

Six of the seven works on display in this edition have been created specifically for FIMAV. This is a fabulous first in the eight years of existence of our Sound art installations in public spaces component.

This year’s programming focuses on sound objects, sculpture, movement, material. We have works where the narrative has been taken out, where the sculpture/object produces sounds on its own, where human/meteorological/physical intervention influences aural results. Kinetic sculpturing is everywhere. And so, along the circuit, visitors will take part to an audio-optical experience. They will be able to activate an excavating machine that produces sounds and residues. They will see automated systems in motion. They will be able to influence the radio waves and signals of a set of objects. They will trigger the sound sources of a mysterious autonomous satellite. Finally, they will be shown a perpetual motion stabile powered by industrial fans.

This year’s circuit, presented in a relaxed setting that fosters discovering, questioning, and surprise, should make a mark on – and open – everyone’s mind.

1aa modifié 1 MARTINE H. CRISPO

« Fantaisie électrique »

Quebec, WORLD PREMIERE

This sound installation was inspired by the “Rhythmicon” built in 1931 by Leon Theremin. In this new work, a digital LED system is generating sound. MARTINE H. CRISPO focuses her research on the relationship between sound and light using optical sound-based devices. More specifically, she is experimenting with the material and energy of sound through the waves of luminous radiation.

2aa GAMBLETRON

« CIRCLES: emanations - Sephirot Transmission »

Canada, WORLD PREMIERE

This sculpture uses ten concentric circles, a form inspired by a Kabbalistic structure, to explore the fully inclusive dimension of most improvised performances. A sculptural antenna sticks out of a low-energy FM transmitter that sends a signal to several radio sets placed in ten circles of varying radiuses. Throughout the week, the artist will collect the sounds being disseminated through the installation from a mobile radio station. These recordings collected in the public space will be used to create a sound piece.

3a THÉÂTRE RUDE INGÉNIERIE

« Le Pic Pierre »

Quebec, WORLD PREMIERE

Une collaboration

caisse desjardins 3001666

This work is a machine that hammers away with a pick at a disc of mineral matter. The pick enjoys enough freedom to reach various sections of the circular surface. The disc thus marked revolves under a pick-up cartridge connected to a system that modulates the sound according to the markings on the surface of the disc. The mineral fragments produced by the hits are collected under the machine. A “concrete” installation on the cusp of industrial music!

4a SONIA PAÇO-ROCCHIA

« Nouvelle oeuvre de la suite Sentier sonore »

France, WORLD PREMIERE

A sound, kinetic, interactive and in situ installation, a sound path through homemade musical instrument automatons. A generative and interactive composition that tends to be the reversed engineering of its own practice of improvisation.

5aa ÉMILIE MOUCHOUS

« Alouette III »

France, WORLD PREMIERE

Une collaboration
Logo Atoll avec designation art actuel vertical 01

A solar sound sculpture that pays tribute to the aesthetics of the first Canadian satellite and the poetry of the wireless transmissions of yore. « Alouette III » consists of small solar panels, reflectors and other environmental sensors. The unfolding soundscape is self-generated, but it can also be triggered by passers-by.

6a FÉLIX-ANTOINE MORIN

« Stichomythie »

Quebec, WORLD PREMIERE

A sound mobile consisting of two back-to-back industrial fans and a number of objects (flutes, gongs, bells, mobiles, aerophones, found objects, etc.) placed in front of them. The powerful wind blown by the two machines “provokes” the instrumentarium. The back-to-back motors are activated in systematic waves following a cycle of a specific duration to create criss-crossing movements.

« Hélix »

France

Une collaboration
Logo CDA horizontal CO

A playful and intriguing set of sound-making and dancing automatons consisting of helixophones, i.e. instruments made with slinkies (the spring-shaped toy) and resonators. This work is an experiment with timbres and a generative composition that can occasionally react to the presence of visitors.
