Las Pintas is an immersive performance in which sound and visual material is manipulated in real time to invite the audience into a contemplative trance. The performance is articulated in the form of a journey between several universes whose frames and laws generate audiovisual material. Each universe has its own character: some are articulated and chaotic, others are contemplative, stabled, or even in profound transformation. Generation processes synchronized in time and space, with organic aesthetics, have been specially designed to serve the poetry of this hallucinated journey.
JOSE MIGUEL FERNANDEZ (France / Chili)
José Miguel Fernández is a composer and researcher. He composes and plays instrumental, electroacoustic and mixed musical works that have been played in America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. His main lines of research focus on sound spatialization, and the search of new tools for the creation of mixed and electroacoustic music. In addition to his composer career, he works on various educational and creative projects related to computer music.
Raphaël Foulon is a visual artist and researcher. Through the design of his own visual creation tools, he explores various expression forms such as algorithmic generation of visuals, live-cinema and multimedia feedback. His work explores themes such as humans' perception of nature and artifice, technological servitude and the transcendence of concepts related to the real. Thus, he favors materials and textures from the living world, classical artistic cultures and examines their synergistic association with modern means of expression.
