facteur d'échelle

scale factor | Mons, Belgium 2oo3

This was a video creation for a composition by Marie-Hélène Fournier, as part of the “expérience de vol” (“flying experience”) which was the brainchild of Musiques Nouvelles (Brussels) and Art Zoyd, performed by this ensemble. Marie-Hélène Fournier’s work did not as yet exist in the form of a sound recording, but the composer gave her “logbook” to Malte Martin. He then proceeded, based on his interpretation of each of the words, to capture therein colours, sounds, rhythms, and ranges. He invented a journey skirting across paper. The vibration of the tuba folded, unfolded and, with suppleness, distorted its translucent fibre, in an infundibular landscape, over which the weave of light is sculpted by the fingers, and usually metamorphoses. An auroral world of beginnings, where fascination resides on the threshold of recognition, where a foreknowledge of reality is at work.
