Lucas Paris (FR) AntiVolume

immersive installation, 2018

AntiVolume is an immersion in a synesthetic space of timbre and color. This version, IN/EXT, explores movements and dynamics between the interior and the exterior.

In this series of performances, the audience is in the presence of a volatile and energetic sculpture, made of sound and light. Resulting from algorithmic research, it is sculpted in real time by the artist’s improvisation. Three columns of light occupy the performance space. The audience is immersed in this work and perceives it as a physical and textural experience.

This work is in constant evolution. In part improvised, each performance is unique and reflects the venue and the audience. Lucas Paris draws inspiration from the vast vocabulary of electronic music: noise, ambient, IDM, EDM… These references are reinterpreted through a strong musical character and personal fantasy.
