philippe chatelain
Based on the 55 rocks brought from all over Japan to Kyosumi  Garden, Philippe Chatelain sets on the floor 55 cds, each one containing a sound loop of field recordings and abstract sounds. By manipulating and mixing them together, he creates moments where sounds react together creating spontaneous platform oscillating between balance and chaos.
Philippe Chatelain
French artist based in Japan, he works in the fields of video installation, process painting, digital drawing, and sound art. He has shown his works in several international art festivals, galleries and museums. In 2002 he initiated the Laptop Orchestra. He has collaborated with an international network of sound artists and musicians, and has performed in Japan, France, Holland, Korea, and the U.S.
Olivier Pasquet     "Perforations I "   30 mn
olivier pasquet
Perforations I recomposes information coming from the surrounding quiet nature. 
Time and sounds from the garden are freely evolving to a more complex and strongly structuralism with perforated sounds: from lovely tiny holes to a huge deep black hole.
Olivier Pasquet Producer and electronic music composer
OLivier Pasquet is writing music for music but also dance, opera, music theater, classical and contemporary theater. He is also involved in the world of installations and IDM. At Ircam and elsewhere, he collaborates with composers in the computer and electro-acoustic part of projects. One of his research interests is composition for voiced or spoken text. He now believes there is a deep link between music and architectural design and it is time to dig in this direction.
