PLANETARIUM EXTENDED

In the PLANETARIUM EXTENDED project we will find:
A tribute to Ornette Coleman located in the Tokyo airport- noisy skies, crossed by techno-poetics voices- Jules Verne for sure - interstellar messages sent by Alan Turing - a retro-futurist blues dedicated to James Blood Ulmer - a balade signed by Dylan Thomas - « rythmolodic » Dormoy typical développements - a constant suspense and temporary conclusions - the Godard voice asking that we don’t change anything for everything to be different - A référence to a near sky, that one of the airways network, occupied by aircrafts on board of which aural signals and radio communication messages, kinds of celestrial songs, have been recorded.
« Little phrases » always prefered to long developpements - a game with the chemicaly pure species of jazz, blues, rock, electronic, etc, far from any blend attempt .
The visual work for the "Planetarium extended" project reflect the radio sounds used and the thematics of the song played by the musicians. Moving images are played synchrone with the music, using real-time sound&image softwares.
From landing procedures, space communication networks and imagery to primitive cosmologies, the visuals enrich the tropospheric&melancholic view of our world.
