Nemo Festival at Le Cube
Performances and interactive installation free entry
The Némo festival celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2012. It is one of the main French events dedicated to digital arts and is organised by Arcadi, an artistic and cultural agency in the Ile-de-France region. Having celebrated computer graphics innovations during many of its editions, the event is now completely dedicated to audio-visual performances and multimedia installations. The Cube is a loyal and long-standing partner of the Némo festival. Together, they offer audiences an ever more exceptional and surprising artistic programme, with the programme this year including two live audio-visual evenings and an exhibition.
THURSDAY 29 NOVEMBER 8.30PM TWO PERFORMANCES:
2.RONE + STUDIO FÜNF
YroYto, an artist specialising in object performance, will be presenting, alongside Centre La Gabrielle (Seine et Marne) users, a project created during his residency in that centre which is a home and creative space designed for mentally-disabled people. Together, they will be presenting live the result of their collaboration. In the second half of the evening, Studio Fünf, French graphic designers exiled to Berlin, come together with Rone, a rising electro artist, for a new live creation on the occasion of the launch of their second album under the InFiné label.
FRIDAY 30 NOVEMBER 8.30PM TWO PERFORMANCES:
1.QUAYOLA + ABSTRACT BIRDS
Quayola and Abstract Birds will present the second version of Partitura, a project with live visualisation of musical content. For this evening, Ligeti's viola sonata will be interpreted in a live, interactive audio-video format by Odile Auboin, a soloist from the Ensemble Intercontemporain. In the second part, Filastine, an American exiled to Spain and discovered at the Némo festival in 2010, will present his new performance which accompanies the launch of his third album, £oot. A performance between acoustic and synthetic (with a cellist on stage), he ties world influences to riot images. "Brilliant, top class and visionary": Leiss’ description of it in Trax magazine.
FROM TUESDAY 11 TO SATURDAY 15 DECEMBER
INSTALLATION BY THE SEEPER COLLECTIVE
The English arts and technology collective, Seeper, presents Clear noise: their laboratory in the form of an interactive installation. Equipped with a contact sensor headset, spectators become the mind artists of the projected images. Depending on the stimulation they receive, the images change and transform according to their emotions. This is an artwork and social experiment to try out at the Cube!
