Cie d’Autres Cordes: Cascades

Franck Vigroux and Antoine Schmitt (France-based) are multifaceted artists whose works range from experimental electronic music to modern composition and music theatre. Together, they bring their exciting new audio-visual project Cascades in the extraordinary technological environment of the Alexander Theatre for one exclusive Melbourne show.

Cascades is an audiovisual project inspired by the concept of waterfalls, here represented by flows of pixels which movements are generative, meaning never the same. For the music, this same concept is used as inspiration to compose music using electronic instruments, a sort of continuum reminding of surge and immutability… Fruit of a decade long of collaboration between the two artists, Cascades represent both infinite movement and stability, but where catastrophes can happen: a synesthetic artwork, both contemplative, reflexive and a physical experience.
