Myriam Bleau (CA)
Ballistics is an audiovisual performance for five pendulum interfaces drawing inspiration from popular science fiction and mysticism. The wireless luminous objects are equipped with motion sensors allowing for handheld manipulation, oscillations, spins and high momentum trajectories.
An exercise in sonifying movements and pendulum physics, this performance uses digital modular synthesis to reveal a corroded and textural landscape of uneven rhythms.
Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montreal. She creates audiovisual systems that go beyond the screen, such as sound installations and performance-specific musical interfaces. Her hybrid electronic practice investigates music performance as a codified cultural manifestation and recontextualizes pop culture elements and music history tropes. Her work has been recognized and presented internationally : Prix Ars Electronica (AT), Sónar (ES + HK), Sonic Arts Award (IT), Elektra (CA), Mutek (CA + MX + JP), ISEA (CA), Transmediale (DE), ACT (KR), Laboral + Lev (ES), Scopitone (FR) and Cafe Oto (UK), to name a few.
