Performance 'frequencies (a)', 2012 of Nicolas Bernier

The Canadian artist Nicolas Bernier will work during his residency at LABoral in the development of frequencies (particles), 2014, an installation site-specific to the space of the Sound Lab. The selection of the artist in residence and the work produced is a proposal joint by the LEV Festival and LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial.

Putting forward his ever growing fascination towards the basic sound generation devices, Nicolas Bernier started to work with basic synthetic sounds in 2013. Bernier is here pursuing this research, returning to a technique he had voluntarily abandoned years ago: granular synthesis.

In frequencies (particles) several short sound movements are created using Cconfin, an audio-processing application programmed by Ennio Mazzon for the Italian-based label Farmacia901. Working specifically around the notions of grains, particles and randomness, this new installation is made of even smaller/tighter particles of audio/light sequences made to be played in random order, generating an ever expending form in time and space.

In this piece, every element is a particle: grains of sounds are worked to make larger sound fragments that are used to make short compositional movements, which are then organized randomly generating a fragmented form.
