Revealing the invisible: this is the guiding theme of the 4th edition of the Grand Soir Numérique, as part of the Nemo Biennial. ScanAudience by SCHNITT, Sibaldi and Monfardini does exactly what its title says: it scans the audience to generate sounds and images specific to each person. Interactivity again: OMax software transforms the machine into a jamming partner for the soloists of the Ensemble intercontemporain, while Maresz shapes a virtual and evolving trumpet mute in Metallics. In The Island, Vigroux and d’Haeseleer question the upheavals caused by technical progress, evoking the islands and valleys submerged by hydroelectric dams. Finally, for Sofia Avramidou, digital technology is put at the service of the Greek myth of Geranomachy, the fight of the legendary Pygmies against the cranes - embodied respectively by the ensemble and the electronics.
