Listen to a concert excerpt:
Il y a is the first collaboration of J.Lenot with IRCAM. 84 virtual instruments and synthetical bells are spatialized in a church. Here is an example of how these bells sound like.
Performance was all about mixing this voices together with some special effects. I develop a harmonic persistent reverberation to play with sustainable partials.
In addition, we made Il y a instants, a set of excerpts of il y a that were played automatically in the church during 10 days.
