Panorama and Agora, events organized by the Fresnoy and IRCAM, open simultaneously, reflecting the artistic convergence between the two schools.
The installation Tripwire is the fruit of the meeting of the American composer Ashley Fure who is completing the Cursus program at IRCAM and Jean-Michel Albert, video student at the Fresnoy.
Eighteen ropes, each one attached to a motor that turns it, are turned into a movie screen. This mechanical system represents a sound wave corresponds to an electronic sound space inspired by the noise of the rotating ropes and their harmonic potential. Audience members effect the pre-programmed form of this installation.
