Open Source Synthesizer On going
Technologies tend to fade into our environment becoming "natural" for us, in the sense that we don't really see them anymore.
The interface of this synth was made so we have to get to know the synthesizer. Nothing appears clearly. You have to start playing with it to try to understand which button to manage which parameter. However, I want to avoid it becoming just impractical and frustrating.
An other aim of this project is to try to inject subjectivity in our digital tools who are globally thought to be used by everyone. I wanted to try to shape my tools considering my own practice.
This project is based on an Open Source programm : PureData. This project is 100% hackable, so you can reproduce the exact same or twist it to fit your own needs.
I also try to inject some poetics into really technical project like this one. This synth communicate with its environnement through sensors which modify some parameters of the sound.

This project is a reflexion about the shift from
the depths of sensible and geometrical space of the physical world to a depth of time inside the
digital space as well as the importance of the notion of interface, that surface that annuls the
classical separation of position, of instant or object.
It is composed of an essay and a wandering in virtual reality inside a flower field which only exist through the utilisation of the headset and the experience of the user.

Our contract in reading reality is redefined through the digital space. This implies finding new ways to approach online reading. This project is a plastic, poetic and practical reflection on how to situate yourself in an online text flow, without the folio reference of a book.
