23 de junio de 2023


Jérémie Martineau - Distractions, Horizons (2022 / 5:34)


Distractions, Horizons is an audiovisual performance characterizing the dynamics of concentration experienced during meditative practice. It invites us to oscillate between global attention and focal attention, in addition to portraying the difficult exercise that is mindfulness.

Elliot Yair Hernández López - Ritual (2021 / 5:25)

Ritual is a sonic exploration that combines day-to-day sounds digitally transformed; It narrates the story of a being trapped in an eternal dream that repeats itself infinitely, each repetition is a stage of dreaming deeper and deeper.

Close your eyes, inhale and exhale, repeat three times.

—What am I listening to?

Move, feel the sound.

—What is happening?

A dream, a dream that becomes real.

—Do you hear the voices?

I feel like I’m trapped, it’s so unreal this feeling.

—What do you feel?

Anguish, as if everything is closing around me.

—Do you hear the bells?

No, I don’t hear anything, I only feel this body holding me, in an eternal illusion.

—Listen closely to the mantra...

Diego Bermudez Chamberland - Maniac (2021 / 13:17)

Manic is an atmospheric composition for the Babel Table which proposes a machine-like sound world. The transformations of the instrumental timbre and its deployment are tainted by the fluidity and unpredictability of nature. During the creative process, I was interested in this machine / nature duality, which reminded me of hydroelectric dams. I imagined, through an exploration of sound, how the presence of these gigantic human constructions powered by water might manifest itself. I would like to thank Jean-François Laporte and Productions Totem Contemporain for their assistance in the realization of this work as well as for their performance and recording of the composition.

Matías Sánchez Greco - alquimia, magia, sueños (2020 / 10:05)

This work was composed from the study of different objects, their sound projection and the possibilities of transformation. It intends to be an approach and a tribute to Pierre Schaeffer. A poetic search on the dialogues between materials. Thus, one goes from a dream to an ethereal field or to more iterated articulations. The concrete, the acousmatic, the immaterial as a poetic encounter.

Joseph Sims and Katie Finn - e (mi) (2022 / 7:11)


e (mi) is an audiovisual composition created by Joseph Sims (sound) and Katie Finn (animation). The piece explores contemporary and traditional æsthetics for visual music, displaying a wide variety of gestural and textural sound-image relationships. The sonic palette finds unity in a variety of materials (field recording, digital and analogue synthesis, concrete recording, etc.). Similarly, the image uses a range of techniques such as hand-drawn animation, coding and 2.5D animation. The focus was to create even hierarchical status in both the sound and image. This was achieved by each artist influencing both mediums at every stage of the creation. The macro and mezzo structures were determined by a visual score, while gestural energy and textures were realized through the sonic material
