International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music
Franck Vigroux‘s music is comprised of tectonic tension, beats and electronic textures while applying his own calculated personal signature in his continuance of sonic exploration. He is one of the few artists who is both a musician and a director. As a composer- performer he has the rare capacity to produce a very wide range of sounds from electroacoustic to industrial noise, modern composition and experimental electronic music.
Antoine Schmitt creates artworks in the form of objects, installations and situations to address the processes of movement in all of their modalities, and question their intrinsic conceptual problematics, of plastic, philosophical or social nature. Heir of kinetic art and cybernetic art, nourished by metaphysical science-fiction, he endlessly interrogates the dynamic interactions between human nature and the nature of reality. Originally programming engineer in human computer relations and artificial intelligence, he places the program, a contemporary artistic material and unique by its active quality, at the core of most of his artworks, to reveal and literally manipulate the forces at stake.
Chronostasis is Franck Vigroux and Antoine Schmitt fifth collaboration, it succeed to their worlwide acclaimed duo Tempest.
Chronostasis state is a cerebral illusion involving the neurons dealing with the immediate prediction of the future and to the listening of music, during which time seems to stop. But time is elastic and a stretched elastic always returns to its initial length. The audiovisual performance Chronostasis takes this logic to its limits by dilating to the extreme a catastrophic moment, through the stretching and inversions of time over the whole duration of the performance. The present moment freezes and diffracts endlessly, past and future cease to exist.
Chronostasis will premiere in America during MUTEK.AR Edition 2, on September 15 at the A/Visions 3 program, at Centro Cultural San Martin.
