Synopsis

Multidisciplinary artist Adrien Mondot, of the duo Adrien M & Claire B, creates a novel device that mixes digital juggling with the delicate sonic universe of the eclectic musician BABX.

Literally immersed in an "image space," the instrument and the musician become the protagonists of a dreamlike epic that oscillates between abstraction and impressionism. Making suspended vibrations visible, feeling the vibration of a chord, but also seeing silence and hearing darkness.

"In this project I develop a series of tools to play with the images and allow the video projection to be as alive as possible, to breathe with the rhythm as much as with the sound of the notes," says Adrien M. "I put the music in motion and juggle a metaphorical material, designing digital systems of masses, gravity, inertia that recreate the play of forces and invent a theater of physical balance."

In a bare space, the image embodies the missing notes of the music. The encounter is approached with a logic of mutual aid and co-construction, avoiding subordination and contrived relationships where the image is no more than a setting or the music an accompaniment.

Biographies

Adrien Mondot

Multidisciplinary artist, computer scientist and juggler born 1979 to Grenoble. He is interested in movement and works at the intersection of juggling art and computer innovation. Since 2011, he has been artistic director of the company Adrien M & Claire B. Together to Claire Bardainne creates performances and installations in the field of visual and performing arts. Initially trained as a computer researcher, he worked for three years at the INRIA Center in Grenoble Rhône-Alpes. He discovered dance in 2003 with choreographer Yvann Alexandre and participated in his collective work Oz. In 2004 he created his company Adrien M, with the aim of fusing digital arts, sound, juggling and movement, exploring the links between technological innovation and artistic creation. Relying on to tools he custom-builds, he breaks free from the laws of gravity and time, creates confusion, and plays with circus art and computer science in work at the intersection of illusion, magic, dance, and poetry. In 2011 he joined forces with Claire Bardainne and founded the company Adrien M & Claire B. All works are created to four hands and the company is directed from both. Their goal is to create living digital art: mobile, artisanal, ephemeral, and responsive. Today the company has about thirty collaborators, with three shows and two exhibitions touring internationally. Its headquarters and research and creation studio are located to Lyon and to Crest, France.

BABX

Born into a family of musicians, David Babin began to studying piano at the age of five. After approaching the stage as a member of "Glotte-Trotter," he composed his first stage music at the age of seventeen for a show inspired by Roland Topor's poetry and then joined the Herbe Tendre company. In the early 2000s, he writes his first songs and gives his first concerts. At that time he chose the pseudonym BABX.

In 2006, his first album was released by Warner Records and aroused unanimous enthusiasm from part of the press. In a review published in Epok, Dominique to writes of the album "it is wonderful, because the music (...) cancels the novelty of the words and gives the feeling of a story that comes from far away. At the very least, from follow closely." Following its release, the album is nominated for the Victoires de la Musique in the "Revelation of the Year" category. In 2008, BABX and his team record the second album Cristal Ballroom, inspired by the musicians in the from ballroom of the Titanic. In 2010, he directed and produced Camelia Jordana's first album, becoming one of the leading producers in the French music scene. In 2015, BABX founded his own production label, "BisonBison," to give to himself and other artists the means to realize their projects in complete independence. He subsequently released several albums, Cristal Automatique #1, which sets to music poems written from punk poets, Ascensions, released in reaction to the 2016 Bataclan bombing, Les Saisons volatiles, and NOU GA RO, a tribute album to Claude Nougaro's repertoire. In 2023, his last album recorded with Buda Musique La maison avec un piano dedans is purely instrumental and pays sensitive and intimate homage to the "great black orca," his piano.
