Annabelle Playe performs live music from a live electronic devices.
The music oscillates between electronic, electroacoustic, drone and noise.
Sound, chaotic or pulsed masses, 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 : an odyssey, a quasi-nuclear energy that disturbs our perception of space, questions our posture in the world, 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.

Music The music will unfold through different sound planes, from mass to filaments, extremely chaotic or pulsed materials to enveloping timbres, drones. Sound is here a physical experience of its strength, its density, its intensity, its brutal variations so as to "shift" the perception of the viewer towards other more bitter, contrasted, even violent territories to the point of daring. I want to create a field of movement to change auditory cues and take the listener into forms of audible vertigo. On the other hand, I will discuss the notions of remoteness and immersion through the use of filters. Annabelle Playe Video The idea is to create a reactive 3D audio surface that is animated according to the music through several parameters. Some sounds distort the surface, others generate colors that diffuse on it. In addition to the response to music, the surface has its own life and evolves autonomously as the performance progresses. A part of random makes that its shape and its color is each time different. Hugo Arcier
