Devised by Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves (sculpture) and Lara Morciano (music), and performed by José-Miguel Fernandez (computer development, IRCAM), this audiovisual concert uses a set-up that literally “reads” an iron meteorite, an octahedrite. The result of the extreme behaviour of space physics, the abstract landscape and organic details of the meteorite seem to link natural geometry with that of contemporary synthetic images.
The performance invites the audience to follow the grooves of the extra-terrestrial disc, journey through the temporal depth of its three-dimensional motifs and listen to the resonance of its structure, lines and parallel geometries.
In the first part you can discover Monologue pour une araignée mécanique, an audiovisual creation by Marco Suarèz-Cifuentes, Nicolas Crosse and Luis Niéto (who is incidentally the stage director of La Métamorphose).
Octaédrite also exists as an installation, which will be presented in our exhibition Prosopopoeiae : When Objects Come Alive at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS.
