Bertrand Lanthiez || Sound of Threads

Installation, sound-design and video by Bertrand Lanthiez

First installation of the Sound of Threads exhibition in June 2013 in Reykjavik.

Sound of Threads is a structure of wood and threads of wool, where light is projected to visually translate the music and enhance the sound.

Sound of Threads

I presented this exhibition in Reykjavik in June 2013, and it consisted of two different 
installations, both engaging with sound’s impact in multiple ways, so that people could both feel and create music, by hearing, touching and seeing the sound. 
 
I tried to demonstrate the power of our senses when they interact in being « triggered » simultaneously. I was interested in questions of how sight can enhance hearing, or also disturb our balance in perceiving a multimedia-based bodily experience. 
 
The main part, and first to be seen, when entering the exhibition, was an installation consisting of four wooden stands and white threads of icelandic wool, where light was projected on in a way to visually translate the music and extend the sound experience of the prepared sound piece.
 
The second part was a tiny room where people were invited create their own „music piece“ merely by their bodily existence. In touching wires, that were hanging from the ceiling, and by walking and dancing bare foot in this room, my specific material setting accounted for temporarily closed electric circuits that started single samples of the outside presented piece of music. And all based on the random performing of all the visitors and their conductive human bodies. Additionally each sound was connected to multi-colored light impulses, projected on large, flaglike pieces of transparent fabrics, that were also hanging from above.

The two installation were visually and in their structures arranged quite differently.
The main piece was black and white, with really thin ray of light choreographed on a soundtrack, the other was an instrument where the visitors made their own piece of sound, and was really colored on this large pieces of fabrics.
But this two pieces were also tightly connected by using the same voices and sounds, and they both wanted to show this link between our different senses.

Numbercult || Cycles 720

Cycles 720 est un séquenceur audiovisuel hybride construit avec VVVV,  Ableton Live et un patch M4L personnalisé.
Les interactions de cercles et de lignes sont déclenchées par des percussions : le rythme et le swing sont dictées par la taille, le nombre de cercles, leur degré de séparation, l’orientation et l’élasticité de chaque collision.

A propos : Numbercult est une bannière pour le travail de Craig Allan. Il explore actuellement la communication entre le son abstrait et le monde visuel en utilisant des installations audiovisuelles immersives en temps réel, des sculptures numériques interactives proche du  spectacle vivant. Il se spécialise dans la production de musique, le design sonore et  l’art génératif en temps réel pour les environnements médiatiques de grande envergure. Il a fondé le label eponymousnumbercult et a participé à l’émergence de la musique électronique sous le nom Rei Loci.

Cycles 720 is an hybrid visual/audio sequencer built using VVVV and Ableton Live with a custom M4L patch.

Circle/Line interactions trigger percussion: rhythm and swing are dictated by the size, number of circles, their degree of separation, orientation and elasticity of each collision.

About : Numbercult is a banner for the work of Craig Allan. He currently explore comunication between abstract sound and visual worlds.
