ChDh, the two French brothers Cyrille and Damien Henry, have developed a body of work from theoretical principles which makes possible the creation of a live, real-time, audio-visual performance based on about thirty instruments, made of generative, stochastic or physical modelling algorithms each of them controlling a sound and a visual element.
The performance was highly hypnotic: the movements of symmetric shapes were in perfect sync with the acidulous auditory atmosphere, which was more fascinating than it was unsettling. Yet I would not recommend the show to anyone epileptic!
Vladislav Delay was more ambient and once he got his bass fixed, he managed to create a floating, fanciful atmosphere in Kiasma theater. The music had a very relaxing, euphoric effect on me.20d4
