After two years of work, Aurélia-Djehan Derungs and Laurent Mialon are releasing this CD+DVD project (begun on Sept 11th). Both versions offer a total of 2H20 of acousmatique electronic hardcore (with a 5+1 track), and more than 35 minutes of dreamlike videos, combined for a strange psychedelic travel that aims at bending the curve of space-time. The KYMA platform was used extensively to manipulate live-recorded natural sounds such as thunder, flies that landed on the microphone, fallen rocks or the grating of ski lifts.

Discussion (Descriptions, reviews, discussion):

This audiovisual work is about the idea that any centre of attraction will end ineluctably in collapsing on itself, such as what astrophysicists call gravitationnal singularities. Although the WTC attacks were the departure point for this artistic project, Aurélia and Laurent have, however, since extended their reflection to the quest for a necessary aesthetics of collapse, in general.
