In this experimental laboratory, I developed some new interactions. Using recordings of Graham Valentine’s voice, Jean-Pierre Drouet literally spoke with his hands using a zarb: Creating a augmented zarb that not only produce its own sound but also speak. Graham Valentine explored real-time choir synthesis by singing with the machine. I also recorded a huge architect’s lamp that creaks a lot and made it speaks using Norbert Schnell’s mosaicing technic. Here is how a lamp’s voice sounds like, conducted by Graham Valentine’s voice.

I also work with Jean-Christophe Paré on the sonification of his dance.
