Les cymbales du malentendant



Installation by Jean-François D'Or featuring Emmanuel Mathot and Louis Favre for Centre Pompidou Kanal, Brussels, September 2018.

 

Video presentation on Page 4.


A rigorous regular interval line consisting of 15 large hanging luminaires seems to float at ground level.
The sound becomes luminous intensity, silence, clear, dark, alternating half-light and a ground sprinkled with diffuse light. Contrast and ambiguity between absence of sound and dotted lighting, between sound rhythms and speed of light.
Audio headsets are available to allow a second approach and interpretation of the installation.
Quiet interaction with visitors. 

A complex computer device reconstructs the rhythmic prowess of a percussionist by translating them into electrical impulses supplying this setup of luminaires that have become cymbals.

Dialogue, and resonance with the emblematic architecture of this Brussels place.

Installation concept and scenario by Jean-François D'Or.

Software and hardware by Emmanuel Mathot. 

Drums composition by Louis Favre.
