This lab is about heterotopia, eastethetics in art and regeneration. Crane lab reflects on the acousmatic art and its future developments in a wide aesthetic and inter-generational diversity.
As a futuristic bruitism, atypical composer of acousmatic & electronic music, Jean Voguet has always focused on how his works are presented in each environmental context. The concept « Acousmatic Geophonies & Heterotopias » comes from his research « sound spaces of otherness », which means the virtual ecosystem in complex structures (the sound materials created by additional and subtractive synthesis, granular and wave table, not originating from organic sound).
It is also characterized by grand and variable spectral frequencies, in initiatory musical wandering, outside of time and outside the border, within the unlimited and temporary dimension.
Many of his compositions such as « l’Odyssée », « instants sonores », « Jeux & Variations MiDi » have been induced by his obsession with the great myths of humanity and poetic nature of human-beings.
In addition to performing in various events of acousmatic music, he has been taken to perform in live electronic performances, concerts with aircrafts and tractors, multidisciplinary events and festivals internationally. Not only compositions, he has also extensively created site-specific works. His regular collaborations with artists from other disciplines include works with visual arts, dance, poetry, performance art.
Voguet was the co-artistic director of the VIA Festival in Paris (1993-2002) and co-founded the PAN Network (1994-2003).
Jean VOGUET is the director of the CRANE lab • Research Center • for heterotopia, arts, ethics of art and regeneration since 1995.
Each station has its own unique compositional landscape that defines virtual space and time. Each Station entails a number of sound samples that are created with additive, subtractive, granular and wavestable synthesis in various softwares. With a pilot MIDI, Jean Voguet spatialise the diffusion of his pieces, by manipulating the intensity and the dynamic of the sound in real time.
