TADAEX2018 / Overview

Overview BY Annabelle Playe & Hugo Arcier

“Overview” is an audiovisual performance of electronic music and generative video (3D). Annabelle Playe performs live music with an electronic instrument device. The music oscillates between electronics, electro acoustics, drone, and noise. Sound, chaotic, pulsed masses and enveloping timbres are connected to a reactive 3D audio surface, created by Hugo Arcier, and animated according to the musical parameters. Some sounds distort the surface; others generate colors that diffuse on it. “Overview” is an odyssey and a quasi-nuclear energy that disturbs our perception of space, questions our posture in the world, and electrifies the fabric that connects essence, existence, and universe. Music and images are in synergy to develop a force sometimes hypnotic, sometimes chaotic leading us to cross a wall of sound, a dazzling, to finally go to the other side. With “Overview,” I continue to dig the notion of movement, displacement and transformation through the journey, the odyssey, and the inner quest. Intimate, geography, sidereal spaces echo each other: from nano to macro. To bring a new perception plan to this research, I asked Hugo Arcier to create a reactive 3D audio surface. The “overview effect” questions our relationship to existence on the scale of the universe. The notion of transformation from one point of view and the changes of state are at the heart of my research. I want to extend the overview effect to other experiences such as near-death experiences, meditation, travel, or the upheavals that a human being can experience during a lifetime. These experiences change our consciousness, our field of perception, our apprehension of knowledge, our posture to the world, and more broadly, the universe. These different processes animate my compositional research that develops from an assembly of modules, filters, and distortions.
