Artist Statement:


    Presented as a world premiere at MUTEK 2013, frequencies (synthetic variations) is the second instalment in Nicolas Bernier’s avant garde audiovisual series, in which he tampers with sound waves and light bursts in real-time – like a sculptor would carve out a mold as he prepares to realize his creation. Just as impressive as frequencies (a) was at simultaneously rendering sound visible and a stream of light audible, frequencies (synthetic variations) finds the performer processing sequences of light and purely synthetic sounds with extreme precision – resulting in intermittent light blasts within small acrylic structures. Whether he’s hatching inventive sound installations, musique concrète or live video art, the multidisciplinary Bernier is ever mindful of striking a delicate balance between intellect and sensuality, materiality and ephemera, and between organic sounds and digital processing.
