Six Drawings [LIVE]

Performances & Créations

Audiovisual performance by Mathieu LeSourd (FR), aka Maotik, and Diego Espinosa (MX) starring a percussionist using an inflatable balloon as a music instrument and a live immersive projection.

By using two contact mics and a MIDI pedal to generate effects, the performer explores different techniques for generating sound. Squeaking, thumping, bubbling or breathing sounds will be mixed to create a unique musical composition. The visual components will react live to the sounds and to the performer’s movements, giving the audience the impression of being inside the instrument... the balloon.
