Quand je démarre une nouvelle oeuvre, je sais rarement où elle va m’emmener.
Et quand je le sais, je vais presque toujours ailleurs.
Pour “Balkan Bach”, j'avais assemblé toute une collection de “plasticine” (séquences d’images qui allaient être assemblées et modulées dans Final Cut Pro, GLMixer et Studio Artist), toutes très colorées.
Imaginez ma surprise quand j'ai réalisé que ce travail ne commençait à résonner que si il se “confinait” au noir et blanc, me ramenant à ces belles années quand ma santé me permettait encore de nager dans la poussière de fusain et autre graphite, le dessin ayant toujours été mon premier amour (https://tinyurl.com/u5wrqyt).
Toute ma gratitude va vers Joanna Goodale qui a rendu possible ce beau voyage.

Joanna a eu la gentillesse de me laisser “emprunter” sa musique pour me permettre de l'écouter avec mes yeux.
La sensation initiale qui m'a poussé à contacter Joanna après ma première écoute est restée vivante pendant les centaines d'heures requises pour trouver ces images.
Un beau voyage.


When I start a new piece, I seldom know where it will take me.
And when I do, I most often go elsewhere.
For “Balkan Bach”, I had made ready a large collection of “putty” (various image sequences to be composited and modulated in Final Cut Pro, GLMixer and Studio Artist), all so very colourful.
Imagine my (pleasant) surprise when the work started to resonate only when taking place in black and white, taking me back to those glorious years when my health still allowed me to work with natural media, “swimming” in charcoal and graphite dust, drawing having always been my first love (https://tinyurl.com/u5wrqyt).
Very grateful to Joanna Goodale for having made this journey possible.

Joanna kindly let me “borrow” her music so that I could listen to it with my eyes.
The sensation experienced during the first hearing of this music which prompted me to contact Joanna remained alive throughout the hundreds of hours needed to find the images that make the movie.
A beautiful journey.

New GS Gen Features2

"This is a really good example of how perceptual modulation of diverse sets of different paint synthesizer parameters can really tune what is happening in the canvas.  This applies to realistic painting goals, or to abstract painting…"
