The Percephone

I created this spherical musical controller as part of my school work with 4 other students. We wanted to give musicians a real opportunity to forget all they had learned, and only focus on expressiveness. It was used as a MIDI controller but was based on the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol which was way better to use due to its unlimited data. Here is a short presentation video of the Percephone. And here a video of it's usage on stage by the band Maddalena

Percephone Sync

This system was created using several different technology in order to synchronize sound, video and light. It first came of our frustration during live concerts when lighting effects were not launched at the exact same time than the music. We then created this prototype as a proof of concept. We were controlling

Gedeon by Quaterside

Gedeon is a modular LED tubes system that allows to animate a stage, a venue or any place that hosts an event. The tubes can be arranged in different ways and therefore can be used to create various scenographies.

Each two-meters-long tube consists of two sections of independently controllable LED strips and a casing for power supply and DMX processing. The LEDs used are RGB, which means they are capable of diplaying more than 16 millions different colors.

The system has been unveiled in October 2015 at the Cabaret Sauvage in Paris, where it was used to encircle the dancefloor. Here is the Video presenting the project

Quaterside

Quaterside was an interactive conception agency specialized in crafting bespoke devices . I started creating it with 2 other engineers passionate about new technologies, The agency’s aim was to improve technologies' accessibility to retail, communication and events domains. Our objective was to make our technical skills available in order to bring interactivity to our clients’ spaces & scenographies, whilst respecting their personal universe.

Dead Sea

This project is a scenography for the band Dead Sea. It consists of four light tubes panels, each located behind the musicians in order to highlight them on stage.

The panels are a structure made of 11 white light tubes each independently controllable using DMX. Since the band is using a lot of synthesizers, it is the MIDI data coming from these that’s controlling the lighting of the tubes. Each tube is linked to a note on the musical scale, its luminosity changing with the pressure on the synthesizer’s keys and the sound volume.

This project is in the conception phase.
