minimalist performance for dance, piano and electronics
Ivoire is a minimalist piece at the crossroads of dance, digital arts and improvised music. Stéphane Bissières creates here a partially "generative" electronic music, elaborated to give also the possibility of a total control by the musician as part of the performance. Granular synthesis breaks acoustic sound into micro elements, fragment and reconstructs it in real time in a different form. The sound of the hammers on the strings is prolonged and modifies the perception of the sound space. The time expands and causes a feeling of suspension, meditative.
The choreography interacts with the music while playing with the space, lights and mirrors of the installation that multiplies the presences, playground appearances and disappearances, immobility or energy.
