Aymeric Mansoux & Chun Lee, live electronic music performance for After the Net.


Mansoux and Lee started 0xA in 2005 and their collaboration has grown into both musical research and the development of new musical interfaces for live performance. Using virtual instruments and their own algorithmic processes, they sculpt sound in real-time, looking for new electronic spectra and waveforms. Lee and Mansoux are using a diverse toolkit for their performance, including Pure Data, an open source artistic software originally dedicated to real-time audio synthesis. In this environment, they work on algorithmic processes to produce different sound modules, effects and sequencers that are connected to each other via a network reflecting their remote collaboration. The performance draws upon many genres from surreal electronics and abstract ambient to early electro and kitsch synth-pop, chiptune, recalling Stockhausen, Throbbing Gristle, Kraftwerk and Nobukazu Takemura, as well as the broken beats and lo-fi glitches of modern dance music.
