A MULTI DIMENTIONAL EXPERIENCE
BY JOAN COSTES AND ADRIEN DE MAUBLANC
" L.E.O CONCERT "
- INTERACTIV VISUALS FOR A CONCERT -
After several random discussions on the perception they had of the relationship between visuals and music, Kate Simko encouraged Adrien to participate in her London Electronic Orchestra Project that was to be a graduation show for the London Royal College of Music. The idea was to create a visual surrounding for the concert night in Britten Theatre. A symphonic orchestra would play the electronic music of Masomenos Coco Classico. This proposal was well timed as Adrien had just spent the year working and developing the Color Piano installation with the help of their ingeneer intern Aurelien Krieger. As they began to work on the scenes, they strove to create a different visual style than the usual masomenos tripped/pop/fun aesthetic. They’ve built scenes in C4D in which all object were linked to an instrument group that would light up and give life to the scene. All scenes would have a different light story depending on the piece of music that was being played, and how they chose to assign it. These are all technical words, but the result was simply poetic and intuitive. On March 12th, 2014, the orchestra played and your eyes could follow the music and it was great to watch!
