(LYM) Lola and Yukao Meet
Audio-visual Performance/Live (France/Denmark)

Lola and Yukao Meet offers you a unique and wonderful musical and visual experience that is built on the association of live digital drawing, voice, electric violoncello, and urban and organic sound landscapes. Ambitious, beautiful and inspired, their performance alKemi is populated with strange creatures from our dreams and fantasies. Like an initiatory journey, it approaches in succession themes on the fall, infernal dance, and revelation in the form of an ambivalent siren and festive redemption. Alternately solar and lunar, with cascades of ice and fire, the live graphical performance is combined with vocal and musical loops to produce an intense and captivating audio-graphical work. It will enchant you with its vocal and instrumental melodies and will guide you on an initiatory journey from which you will be transformed.

Lola Ajima is a composer and multi-instrumentalist / singer who was born in Denmark. She currently works in France and creates works that are at the dividing line between sound landscapes and musical composition. She makes her music live using her instruments (mainly electric bass and violoncello) and free software such as Supercollider and Puredata. She is doing a course in electro-acoustic composition with Christine Groult. Her style of music is based on loops made with drones, in a melancholic and dark atmosphere.
Lola Ajima started out as a bassist in industrial and shoegaze music groups. She then became a composer for contemporary dance and short films. At present, she is exploring audio-graphic performance with Yukao Nagemi in a collaboration that began in 2009 in Berlin.

Yukao Nagemi is a scientist and artist living in France. His graphical work evolves around lines and mixes symbols and visions of reality around themes such as suffering, memory, spirituality, myths… In addition, he is developing a digital media practice that combines graphical lines and visual effects in the framework of Lola and Yukao Meet with the musician and composer Lola Ajima. His digital work is based on personal tools that produce in real time an increase of the line by particles and cellular automatons combining human expressivity and computer algorithms.
Since 2011, Lola and Yukao Meet has presented four projects NINE (9), CityWalk #1 Paris, d-cONT and alKemi in many festivals, art galleries, or concert halls in France and abroad (Germany, Denmark, and Norway).

With the collaboration of Loup Lamouroux, Elisa Planes & Pauline Quantinet

30 years of video and digital art history!

From the 80s, a period when the general public discovered video art, to the first decade of the 21st century and the explosion of digital arts through the paths opened by the pioneers of this experimental art, a number of assembled photo and video documents will see its formal and chronological structure “performed” on screens, a performance on a montage partition that is managed randomly. The sound, like silent films of the past, will be played live but in total “weightlessness” since different musical groups will discover the arrangement of the images at the same time as the audience.

For occasion, the event sound design will be provided by the bands Vocello & L’infrazone

VoCello : (MarieSylviane Buzin & Véronique Giraud) subtle presences, sound surveying, chaotic encounters between voice and violoncello.
L’infrazone : (David Fontaine & Manu Mouyokon) a bass-drums duo and chorus with metal, post-rock, and contemporary accents where melodies and free rock tones unite in the infrazone.

Le B.Y.O.P. VIDEOFORMES Bring Your Own Projector!

What is a B.Y.O.P. ?
A collaborative and enjoyable event: Come with your video projector!

From the beginning, VIDEOFORMES 2015 wished to highlight a collection of collaborative performances.
In the current context of the recomposition of cultural policies and regional redevelopment, the B.Y.O.P VIDEOFORMES 2015 has become a genuine manifesto of contemporary digital and artistic creation, a “life-size” image of a region.

All the artists of the moving image, the organization, and the partners of our region including those who visit the VIDEOFORMES 2015 festival are invited to come project their images on a huge screen and thus create an experimental and revealing mosaic.

Participants : Lucas Falchero • VOLKINO / Céline Roques Savary • Niina Motoka • Matsuo Nahoko • Musiques démesurées / Angélique Ollier • Justine Emard • Marion Guillard • Arnaud Simetière • Christophe Tarrerias • AADN / Pierre Amoudruz • Atelier d’art thérapie / Jean-Philippe Mangeon

The soundtrack of this screening will be improvised and performed by Paradise Now (Belgium) :
Transonic BYOP + special guest : Christophe Bailleau (Be)

The elusive Paradise Now has been invited by VIDEOFORMES to unfurl its poetic landscapes, a mix of sound arts, electric guitar improvisations, and fragments of impressionist songs that interact with the BYOP screenings. They have invited their electronic musician partner Christophe Bailleau to improvise by combining ambient layers, mutant psychedelic flights, piercing rhythms and field recordings.
