Since its inception in 2015, Grand Soir Numérique has become one of the highlights at Biennale Némo, fusing contemporary music (Ensemble Intercontemporain and Ircam) with audiovisual performances (staged by Biennale Némo) and, of course, audiences under their spell for one spectacular evening.

Edgard Varèse was already exploring the relationship between science and music in 1924, in Intégrales, a cult work that still sounds just as modern today. In Re-Solarization and Thermo-Ton, Japanese composer and videographer Tatsuru Arai attempts to convey musical expression through sight and other senses.

In LAVA, by the French duo Tryphème and Ulysse Lefort, the music modulates the projected video in real time through an impressive use of artificial intelligence. Pierre Jodlowski, an artist well-versed in combining electronics with multimedia, will perform Time & Money, a work for percussion, electronics and video. Yang Song, who perpetually reinvents her music using technology, has created a new instrumental “vocality” through digital hybridization.

Roundtable: Digital technology and sound creation: Friday 8 December 2023 at 6.30pm
Amphitheatre of the Cité de la musique
Duration: 1 hour
Free admission
