ANÉMOCHORIES#1


A 14 hours composition
generated by wind data

2021

Anémochories are a series of generative and/or interactive compositions controlled by the wind. Algorithmically conceived, the compositions unfold and adapt to different situations, places, devices, temporalities and formats of diffusion such as installation, acousmatic concert, or performance.

Anémochories#1 is the first iteration of the series.




Imagine that you are walking. You are walking through an environment, you are crossed by an environment. Your attitude towards the outside world oscillates between attention and distraction, and you seize ephemeral moments of grace that widen your perceptual framework: the gaze caught by a flower, the ear suddenly attentive to a bird song, the smell stimulated by the spring scents. Until you reach a point of view, a panorama, where one usually finds a bench, in order to let yourself go to the contemplation. Anémochories#1 is in a way a panorama, a point of listening to an elusive landscape in its entirety.

Anémochories#1 unfolds through seven states throughout the day



The first iteration of Anemochories was specifically created for the multiphonic sound system of La Vitrine of Art Center Sporobole in Sherbrooke, Canada.
