Ecume, a double album by Thomas Vaquie for Antivj Recordings

Ecume is a collection of musical works originally written by Thomas Vaquié for the Antivj visual label.
These are all derivations of compositions for site-specific and installation projects, the original pieces having been created as a response to place and space, to light and architecture, to code and motion. Now separated and transformed from their original context, the music takes on an independent existence in these new realisations.

Ecume is the first release on Antivj Recordings, a new platform dedicated to music originally composed for installation work.

Mecaniques Discursives, behind the scene

Mécaniques Discursives
An installation by Fred Penelle & Yannick Jacquet

“While the passage of time seems to accelerate every day, Fred Penelle and Yannick Jacquet offer a pause, a suspension, a breath. A strange mechanism stretches across the wall, populated with shadowy chimeras. They are mysterious and yet somehow familiar. Is this a laboratory experiment or the plan for a future network?

3Destruct and the Cathedral of concrete

3Destruct is an installation by Yannick Jacquet, Jérémie Peeters and Thomas Vaquié.
The very first presentation of 3Destruct took place back in 2007 at the Contemporary Art Bienniale of Louvain La Neuve in Belgium. A new version of the piece was later developed at the Lieu Unique exhibition space in Nantes, France, during the 2011 Scopitone festival (ie. Antivj blog post http://blog.antivj.com/2012/3destruct-scopitone/)

Since then, 3Destruct has been exhibited in Mexico, Russia, Switzerland and France.

Magic Geography

The series of site specific visual and sonic installations created by several artists of the ANTIVJ visual label on the invitation of PROYECTA Oaxaca, international festival of  design & digital arts, as part of the Ethnobotanical garden of Oaxaca, Mexico, explores the mediation between the natural and the artificial. Light follows the organic behavior of plants and creates depths of the perceptual field in order to vivify a lively dialogue between computer-generated elements and the natural world.

AntiVJ at Mutek – TOUR DES CONVOYEURS

Once again we’ve been rather busy lately and this blog has been very quiet, but we settled down a bit last month to put together some reports about a couple of projects we did last year.

Here’s the first video report, and there are many more to come !

So last May, we’ve been commissioned by Montreal based Mutek festival to produce an Audiovisual piece in the Old port. The canvas was an old scaffolding tower built in Read more →

AntiVJ Lab: Live painting and mapping

Since the launch of the label, everything is going even faster than before, and we have loads of new projects, ideas and bookings coming up..

I’ve been exploring new fields recently:

- Dome projection, in Bristol planetarium, with the mexican producer Murcof, and the 360° projection format is very immersive, even more than I expected, so I think I’ll carry on with this technique.

- Stereoscopic projection, with polarised filters and silverscreen (same technology as Imax3D), to make visuals appears in 3 Dimensions to the audience. This is also a fascinating technique, and we are investing a lot in this way, and we’ll do more dates soon for the stereoscopic tour, with french band “Principles of Geometry“.
- More experiments, with lights, DMX and perception. Read more →
