Responsive environment, including customized sound reactive software created to generate live graphics to the electronic and piano music of CFCF & Jean-Michel Blais.
        A custom-made large black curtain was drawn behind the performers, and hemmed to only reveal a long and narrow swath of projection screen slightly above the performers’ heads, presenting the visuals close to the performance, keeping the atmosphere intimate, and attention focused on the duo.
        Each song was given a distinct graphic identity based on its sonic qualities. Midi and audio reactive software was developed to enable graphics to be modified live by pitch, amplitude, and ADSR filter envelope parameters. Rear projected video of colour graphics were driven by midi sent from multiple channels of CFCF’s laptop and keyboard. White graphics danced overtop driven by audio input from contact microphones affixed to Jean Michel’s piano.
        This exercise was part of a scenography mandate for a series of RBMA events that included Iggy Pop, Chilly Gonzales, Sampha, Tanya Tagaq and F#cked Up.
