Maotik & Metametric

Maotik & Metametric (CA)

Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik) es un artista digital radicado en Montreal que centra su trabajo en la creación de entornos multimedia inmersivos y visuales generativos. Su trabajo ha sido presentado recientemente en varios festivales alrededor del mundo tales como Live Cinema en Rio, Plums Festival en Moscú, Visiones en Lima, Mutek Festival en  Montrela, Barcelona y el London’s BFI Digital Québec. Su trabajo pertenece a la esfera del diseño generativo. Él desarrolla sus propias herramientas visuales generando animaciones desde algoritmos y creando mundo en 3D para transformar la percepción del espacio.
 
En 2011 recibió el apoyo del DICREAM para la producción de su presentación multimedia inmersiva DROMOS. Presentada en el SATopshere durante el festival MUTEK Montreal en 2013, se convirtió en una performance aclamada por la crítica y difundida ampliamente por los medios.
 
Siempre en busca de nuevos retos artísticos dentro de un campo técnico más estimulante, sus multiples colaboraciones con artistas sonoros (compositores, percusionistas, beatboxers), pero también con científicos (químicos, astrofísicos, ingenieros) para continuar su investigación en la relación entre el arte y la ciencia.
 
Metametric es el más reciente proyecto musical de Jean-François Pedno. Como percusionista reconocido, Pedno trabajó primero para muchas orquestas y ensambles de música de cámara. Luego se involucró con la música electroacústica, y desde entonces ha trabajado como compositor, diseñador sonoro, intérprete y ejecutante . Pedno ha producido más de 50 bandas sonoras para teatro, danza y  cine , que se han presentado en Canadá, Inglaterra , Francia , Italia , Japón, México , República de Irlanda, Escocia , España y Estados Unidos. También ha producido dos álbumes en solitario de música electrónica : Unexpected Areas (como Jeff No) y Durations (como Metametric).
 
En 2002 lanzó su primer álbum de música electrónica bajo el nombre de Jeff Nô. A este le siguió Durations, como Metametric en el año 2010.

Adicional a DROMOS, los dos han implementado una performance de techno granuloso y a la vez, un estremecedor sueño electroacústico llamado DURATIONS que se compone de reelaboraciones sueltas de "Durations 1-5", del pionero, en música indefinida del siglo 20 Morton Feldman. Para este renderizado instantáneo de DURATIONS, que ya estuvo en MUTEK.ES, Pedno manipulará sonidos y melodías de percusión, sincronizando bits de audio alterados con los visuales geométricos generados en una pantalla panorámica. Compartiendo un interés común por como son percibidos el espacio y tiempo. Aquí, Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik), complementa a la perfección y con sus geometrías audioreactivas,  la granulación de los sonidos.

Omnis is a live AV performance who take its inspiration from the concept of ubiquity, the capacity of being everywhere at the same time. New technologies are affecting today's changes of human life, the capability of transferring information instantaneously all over the world, dramatically modifies our perception of space, time and relationships. Our contemporary society splits distance sizes and removes time scales to keep only the tiniest time, the “here and now”.
 
The performance invites the audience to experience this aspect that impact our daily life. Using minimal aesthetics and audio reactive behaviour, the evolution of the rhythm influences the dimension of the environment. The audience experiences a gradually destabilizing environment where the media's flux will be added to each other until reaching the limits between technology and space.
 
The idea is to associate space perception with the notion of time through a myriad of visual variations such as 3D Mesh Morphing, digital textures and superposition effect. Relevant datas retrieved live are translated into visuals in order to get closer to the unreachable moment, the instant.
 
During 30 Minutes [Omnis] immerses the audience into a sensory-heavy experience where a serie of optical illusions and reverbation of the space challenges the participant's sense of depth and time.

Montréal-based Maotik & Metametric is the kinetic combined force of musician and producer Jean-François Pedno (Metametric) and digital artist Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik). Pedno lends his background as a percussionist for orchestras and chamber music ensembles, a composer for theatre, dance and film, and as a solo electroacoustic musician exploring realms beyond dub, glitch and experimental techno to their meeting. Mathieu Le Sourd is a master of generative visuals for interactive installations and multimedia performances, he designs his own audiovisual tools to create real-time immersive experiences such as DROMOS presented at MUTEK 2013. After performing their micro rhythmic, minimalist A/V experiment Durations at EM15 last year, Maotik & Metametric continue their creative associations with Omnis, which makes its Canadian premiere at MUTEK 2015. Following impressive recent displays at Barcelona’s Mira, London’s BFI Digital Québec, Lima’s Visiones, MUTEK Mexico and several other festivals around the world, the duo’s latest immersive sensorial work is inspired by the concept and technological reality of ubiquity – Omnis uses a generative visual system, multiple degrees of optical illusion, and distortion of the performance space to destabilize the environment and explode the idea of being everywhere at the same time.

Since the early 1990s, prolific composer Jean-François Pedno has dabbled in a plethora of vastly dissimilar musical worlds. He has scored over 40 theatre, dance and film productions. Before his solo electroacoustic work first attracted attention abroad in 2000, Pedno was already known as an esteemed chamber-music player, percussionist, and improv musician. In 2002, he released his first electronic album under the Jeff Nô moniker. This was followed in 2010 by Durations, as Metametric. At once granular techno and electroacoustic fever dream, Durations consists of loose reworkings of 20th century indeterminate music pioneer Morton Feldman’s Durations 1-5. For this live rendering of Durations at EM15, Pedno will manipulate percussive sounds and melodies, synchronizing the tampered audio bits with generative, geometric visuals on a panoramic screen. Sharing an interest in how time and space are perceived, Pedno collaborated with visual artist Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik/Dromos) whose audioreactive geometries perfectly complement the granulation of the sounds.
