I file under the name Exomène two activities: soundsmithing and digital apothecarium.
My approach of sound making is very physical. I often start a new track because I felt the urge of transcribing an image or a feeling into sounds. Once the idea is set, I work sounds like a potter with clay, or a blacksmith with metal: hammering, stretching, twisting sounds until they fit all together into a coherent piece of music (
The latter part of my creative activity goes beyond sound but my approach is quite the same: playing with an abstract material as if it was physical but in a more experimental way (digital apothecarium). The sound in itself is no longer triturated but what generates it through several techniques: databending, generativity, algorithm, glitch...
The synæsizer is a result of this approach. This is an audiovisual installation where images are turned into music by a script I wrote. Still images and sounds are then transmitted to a video synthesizer that creates a movie by transforming still images to suit the music they have created.
