AXELLE MUNEZERO & MARC-ANDRÉ COSSETTE

30 MINUTES

What if dancers were to take control of a live music and light composition? This is the core of Temporalité expressive, a collaboration between Axelle, urban dance choreographer, and Marc-André, audio-visual artist. At the origin of this project, there are algorithms capable of generating electronic sounds, bringing three variables into play: muscular tension, body position in space, and movement velocity. Out of this exploration of sound and movement springs a new kind of mathematical language, one that is deeply organic. This interactivity is almost magical. As we watch, previously invisible energies become perceptible and newly formed relationships materialize.

Creative Process

The creative universe is around urban dance and electronic music mixed with the universe of technological interactivity. Indeed, the movements of the dancers directly control the music during the piece. It is on this basis that Oscille, Expressive Temporality, was born, the choreography is composed and expressed musically on stage. The three performers were chosen for their diversity and mastery of the musicality in the movement in order to enrich the melodic research.
