02.11.2016 – Transdemo : Nicolas d’Alessandro + Jean-François Lahos – Requiem

For this new edition of ‘Transdemo’, a series of events launched by Transcultures in 2014 encouraging the dialogue between creators of innovative/in progress/multimedia projects with the public and professionals who are invited to give a feed back to the artists, Nicolas d’Alessandro (research-engineer / musician / digital artist and co-founder of the start-up Hovertone-Mons) and Jean-François Lahos (visual and digital artist, computer engineer-Québec) are invited to present the first stage of their project Requiem which was developed within the framework of “Vice-Versa crossed residences cross digital arts”, initiated by Transcultures with La Chambre Blanche (Quebec).

Requiem is a hybrid research between geometric and sound architectures, which was also developed around the relationship between knowledge and the unknown. This device is a reference to the physical and subtle bodies, as a recumbent statue made of polyhedra and a synthesis voice choir unfold in harmony with the pressure points applied to this body equipped with tactile surfaces.


Transcultures, La chambre blanche in partnership with Hovertone and the support of Wallonie-Bruxelles International, the city of Québec, Conseil des Arts et des Lettres de Québec, Culture et Communication Québec, Conseil des Arts du Canada.
