Atlas, designed by the composer, mathematician, and researcher Carmine–Emanuele Cella is a collective work in all aspects. The sound material was collected in advance of the performance, at three sites in Paris, Karlsruhe, and Athens making it possible to create a subjective sound map. Two other composers—Dimitris Kamarotos and Valerio Tricoli—and a video artist—Marine Gioti—joined Carmine Emanuele Cella to exploit these geolocated sources and mix them with their own electronics. The process results in a performance in real-time—distributed simultaneously in the three cities—in which the artists interact with each other, dialogue or interrupt flows from elsewhere. "Here and now",
Atlas' play and listening space belongs only to the specific space of each performance.
