Eternity Be Kind at LaTurbo Avedon (2018)


Unifying her multi-instrumentalist background—cello, guitar and piano along with instruments of her own creation, with audiovisual art, Bleau creates sound installations and performance-specific musical interfaces that often move beyond the screen; complex systems that let her explore the boundaries between musical performance and digital arts. She’s built music-embedded, brightly lit acrylic tops and spun them like turntables, created a large music box instrument that plays fragments of horizontally stacked engraved vinyl, snapped wine glasses apart and let the pieces vibrate into a music of their own, and orchestrated the glitching electricity of incandescent light bulbs.

Ballistics (2018), is an audiovisual performance drawing inspiration from popular science fiction and mysticism. Wireless luminous interfaces are equipped with motion sensors allowing for handheld manipulations, oscillations, spins and high momentum trajectories. An exercise in sonifying sharp movements and pendulum physics, this performance revels in dark corroded sonic textures and uneven rhythms.
