BIO - ALEX AUGIER
Alex Augier is an electronic musician based in Paris. His work focuses on hybrid digital aesthetics in a musical and transversal perspective, including sound, visual, formal and spatial elements. These elements interact with the stage space, himself, and take mainly the form of singular audiovisual performances. He defends an overview of the creative process where design, programming and technology are an integral part of the artistic project. His works have been presented at international festivals including Scopitone (Nantes/FR), Elektra (Montreal/CA), Media Ambition Tokyo (Tokyo/JP), L.E.V (Gijon/SP), Festival de la Imagen (Manizales/CO), Open Source Art (Gdansk/PL), KinoBeat (Porto Alegre/BR), Athens Arts Digital (Athenes/GR), Nemo (Paris/FR)…
end(O) is an original and immersive piece specifically created for the Satosphere. It merges the aesthetics and technical researches of musician Alex Augier and visual artist Alba G. Corral into a transversal and coherent artistic proposition, focusing on what turns out to be an original and hypermedia-specific pathway. Sound, image, space and time fuse perfectly into a formally unique synesthetic entity: poetic hypermedia, oneiric and organic, deployed in the space that is the Satosphere only for the duration of the experience under the control of the two performers. The conception of this hypermedia piece implies that no dimension takes control over the other but instead completes and enriches it. The proposition puts aside the work where image and sound are used for their illustrative, informative or narrative aspects and to put into focus what appears to be an original and hypermedia-specific pathway.
