Sound artist/composer/performer Nicolas Bernier derives from his previous frequencies project with an astounding new series — 299 792 458 m/s — and a first album on Acte!
Transfert/Futur is marking a shift from Nicolas Bernier’s rather reductionist approach of the previous series to a more expressive and colourful aesthetic. Drawing from science fiction, sound textures are artificialized within abundance of synthesizers, superimposed to create exceptionally organic compositions. In a very contemporary attitude, compositionnal processes are made obvious to the listener, while the sounds themselves are veritable ear candy.
LIYL complex rythmic patterns, lush synthetic environnements and a sci-fi inspired design.
Nicolas Bernier creates audiovisual performances and installations, musique concrète, live electronics improvisations and video art while also working with dance, theatre, moving images and within interdisciplinary contexts.
Awardee of the prestigious Golden Nica at Prix Ars Electronica 2013 (Austria), his work have been presented in major events and venues like SONAR (Spain), Mutek (Canada), DotMov Festival (Japan), ZKM (Germany), Transmediale (Germany) and LABoral (Spain) to name a few. His sound compositions are widely published on electronic music labels : Cronica (Portugal), LINE (US), leerraum (Switzerland), Entr’acte (UK) and emprintes DIGITALes (Québec).
