FROM JULY 3 TO 17 - TWO SESSIONS : 6 PM AND 7:30 PM

This summer, the SAT Fest is back under the dome!


The SAT Fest 2020 presents a selection of immersive short films created by artists from all around the world, exploring fascinating sound and visual universes, between abstraction and figuration.

For this 7th edition, the films immerse us in enigmatic sound and visual atmospheres, sometimes even dreamlike. If some short films offer us pure abstraction; like "Immersive" by the French Jérémy Oury and Antoine Briot, others play with tension, with a certain ambiguity between samples of real and imaginary as for "Brèche" by Lu Yi [Taiwan] and Sébastien Labrunie [ France] and "Paradoxa" by Spanish creators Onionlab.

Core Collapse

  • Length: 5 minutes
  • Visual design: PAST (CZE)

Synopsis:

Core Collapse is a short animated sci-fi movie for fulldome. A frantic ride inside a self-imploding spatial construction.

Experience free fall through shifting structures and ever-changing mutant spaces built in time, and go beyond logic and perception with the latest audiovisual creation from Barcelona-based studio PAST, featuring an impressive sound design by DEATHVOX.

Rendez-Vous

  • Length: 6 minutes
  • Visual design: Sean Caruso (CAN)
  • Sound design: Mourad BNCR (CAN)

Synopsis:

Two souls separated, longing for each other's presence - will the reuniting of the two lead to a fatal attraction? Is it true that love this strong not only transcends but tears through the fabric of space and time, distorting and dissolving the laws of physics in the process?

Biographies:

Constantly challenging cinematic and technical workflows, Sean Caruso focuses mainly on narration through immersive imagery while exploiting the potential of the dome to its fullest.

A sound designer for almost 15 years, Mourad Bncr specializes in immersive environments and interactive content.

Immersive

ARCAAN Collective - Jérémy Oury (FRA) & Antoine Briot (FRA)

Cliquer en pour savoir plus.


Immersive

  • Length: 5 minutes
  • Visual and sound design: ARCAAN Collective (FRA)

Synopsis:

Immersive plays with the Op art concept to produce illusions and illimited perspective with a rhythmic progression of abstract patterns. The experience transforms our perception of reality in an altered mesmerized space. Working with projection of 3D shapes, this installation gives the illusion to be immersed into multiple forms inspired by an abstract universe. The ascending movement and the use of stroboscopic images gives a new feeling of time and the sensation to be fully immersed. The soundtrack is inspired by electronic melody derived from pure sinus and digital noises recreating a real electro-acoustic noisist orchestra.

Biography:

Initiated by Antoine Briot and Jeremy Oury, ARCAAN Collective combines audio and visual skills to make intermedia forms and immersive partitions. ARCAAN creates awarded mappings, fulldomes and digital installations working on illusions in order to place the viewer at the center of a virtual universe to disrupt his perception of space.

Lu Yi (TWN)

Brèche

  • Length: 5 minutes
  • Visual design: Sébastien Labrunie (FRA)
  • Sound design: Lu Yi (TWN) & Sébastien Labrunie

Synopsis:

Brèche is a dive into the heart of the material of my memories. A dreamlike experience like an organic sculpture made of luminous fragments of my auditory and visual memory, where macro and micro perspectives are intertwined, to dream over the course of a meditative sensory experience.

Biographies:

Sébastien Labrunie is a French artist who experiments in the field of new media, where virtual realities, real-time visual performances and analog video synthesis blend together. He creates loops and connections between the analog and digital worlds to make organic sensory experiences and explore human perceptions.

Enigma

  • Length: 5 minutes
  • Visual design: Yan Breuleux (CAN)
  • Sound design: Alain Thibault (CAN)

Synopsis:

Enigma depicts forms of visual and sound information transcoding. Amongst the themes explored, the artists worked around the thought of mathematician Alan Turing through the exploration of issues related to artificial intelligence, deep learning, and digital identity. The creators also focused on the parallel drawn by Turing between the cryptographer and the physician, who attempts to decrypt the universe in which we live. The inclusion of a human-machine dialogue, inspired by a series of experiences conducted at Google in the area of deep learning, gives us a glimpse at the challenges machines will face in their learning and decrypting of human thought.

Biographies:

La matière des souvenirs

  • Length: 5 minutes
  • Visual design: Neon Minuit - Léon Denise (FRA) & Dorian Rigal (FRA)
  • Sound deisgn: MethLab Recordings - Woulg (CAN) & Ben Boysen (DEU)

Synopsis:

The visual journey of memory, of memories, is possible in certain situations of hypnosis or in a dream. This work on this film focuses on the ability of immersive films to provide the sensation of dream images. How do we visualize what is in the past or in the future, in other words what is absent from the present? The film is a journey, a mental itinerary that uses all scales of the human gaze to visualize memories, from the infinitely large to the smallest and invisible.

Biography:

Neon Minuit is a duo of artists, Léon Denise and Dorian Rigal, who use the digital tool. They capture pieces of reality to stage them in their playground: the virtual world. Their artistic approach is inspired by scientific experimentation and serendipity. Using video game tools, they explore and experiment with new ways of perceiving realities, comprehending new spaces and creating illusions. Like modern magicians, they make pixels sing and polygons dance.

Paradoxa

Onionlab (ESP)
