LIVE PERFORMANCE / installations 2006 2011 [BY ART OF FAILURE]
the architectural space is explored through the resonant specificities of its various components.

    CORPUS is a sound and multimedia project in which objects, furniture and the architecture of a place are set in resonance by low frequencies. For this project, Art of Failure analyzes the sound frequencies at which the different elements of a place enter in vibration. The tones of these vibrating elements are used to build a generative composition. The technical configuration of the installation is composed of vibrators precisely placed inside the site and/or by loudspeakers playing sub-bass. All the elements of the site become active, or "alive" and reveal their own tones. This project offers a unique physical experience of the space, a relation all at once sensitive and ghostly with what surrounds us. The offered experience is entirely thought according to the specificities of each space. Each event is documented.

    CORPUS est un projet sonore et multimédia dans lequel les objets, le mobilier ou l'architecture d'un lieu sont mis en résonance par basses fréquences. Pour ce projet, Art Of Failure analyse les fréquences sonores auxquelles les différents éléments d'un lieu entrent en vibration ou en résonance. Les sonorités de ces éléments vibrants servent de base à une composition générative. La configuration technique de l'installation est composée de vibreurs précisément positionnés au sein du lieu et/ou d'enceintes diffusant des infrabasses. L'ensemble des éléments dont le lieu est constitué devient actif, ou 'vivant' et révèle des sonorités qui leur sont propres. Ce projet nous offre une expérience physique de l'espace qui est unique, un rapport à la fois sensible et fantomatique avec ce qui nous entoure. L'expérience proposée est entièrement pensée en fonction des particularités de chacun des espaces. Chaque événement est documenté.
