The project Infratonal explores new ways to compose and perform music and visuals simultaneously. I played and composed in a traditional method in various musical projects for years. Still, now I experiment with a personal compositional path. The 20th century musical evolution is fascinating and pushes me to experiment further with artistic alternative practices to find some personal answer to the question “what next?”
Influenced by the concept behind “the music concrete” from the ’50s in France, I try to use sound as the instrument, and I’m using prepared samples in reference to the “prepared instrument” of John Cage: It’s a modified version of existing samples that aims to be performed in “a sonic travel inside sound masses.”
I couldn’t disassociate the musical expression from the performance question in my work. I then explore the disappearance of the physical instrument and I want to work closely on the “root link” between the musical sound and the performative gesture which stems from human intention. Sensor technologies and computer vision algorithms have a critical role in empowering the artist to communicate with the artwork itself. My goal is to experiment with the future of hybrid musical performance without the proper physical instrument.
