ObE - MAOTIK AND FRACTION

If you remember Dromos at the Satosphere during MUTEK last year, and it's hard not to, we are very happy to announce that the duo Mathieu Le Sourd a.k.a maotik, and Eric Raynaud a.k.a Fraction are back with ObE for another stellar 360 immersive residency at SAT, expanding boundaries and minds with daily shows.

ObE which starts tomorrow January 15th and runs till February 14th is described as an interactive, living installation accredited with a mind of its own! Looking forward to that.

From The Creators Project we learn:

Born from the interplay between audiovisual art and interactive installation, ObE is a unique sensory experience. This hybrid production plunges the viewer into an auditory, visual journey that is experimental and organic.

Alternating between chapters that are pre-determined by the artists and interactive ObE moments, the dynamic 35-minute framework facilitates an exploration of the work's ambient ecosystem. The project is the place where minimalistic, pared-down generative 3D visuals managed by Derivative Touch Designer, compositing, and 5.1 sound processing with electro-acoustic influences meet. They melt together and deliver the viewer to the heart of a destabilizing environment to discover ObE as a living digital organism.

Technically-speaking, the project boasts a circular interface equipped with infra-red sensors controlled by Arduino and MAX/MSP which create the viewer's psychedelic experience. The viewer engages in an exchange with the art/being that is ObE, acting according to its visual, auditory flux. By moving a hand in the same way the theremin is played, the viewer can participate to the construction/deconstruction of the work of art.

More to come!
