✭SONDES✭
Sondes consists of two artists,the sound artist Yi Lu and visual artist Sébastien Labrunie.
Sébastien Labrunie & Yi Lu use noise art melted with raw black and white motion controlled graphics for a live creation performance. Sounds as textures and light as frequencies. The raw composed sounds merge with glitched white light in sensitive patterns and the human filters literally transform the material with their hands instinctively using a Tesla coil, home-made electronic instruments and a motion controller, modifying both the sound and light through space and time. The sound creator and the light maker synchronize to create a living visual abstract sound experience. They are both input and output, absorbing live stimuli and transform them back. They became “Sondes".
林思柏與盧藝創作的“Sondes"是以噪音為基底,融合​黑白律動線條以及運動控制器的現場聲音藝術表演。視覺上聲音被運算為材質,聽覺上光線被轉化為頻率,整曲的結構為數位錯誤運算搭配敏銳跳動的豐富線形,表演中兩位藝術家各使用手勢,控制特斯拉線圈、手工自製電子樂器以及運動控制器,交流出聲音與視覺,營造出一種空間與時間具象的關係,輸出同時伴隨著輸入迴圈轉化,演繹出所謂的“Sondes"。

盧藝也獨立在「台北數位藝術節 2015」、「超聲波 2016」、「​白晝之夜​-衍生現場」、「​大內藝術聲響之​​夜​」​等藝術活動​,呈現電磁波、手工自製電子樂器、電路擾動、硬體駭客和類比錯誤聲響演出。

Yi Lu is a sound artist, a member at Soundwatch Studio, and collaborator to Fujui Wang—a pioneer in Taiwan’s sound art scene. Yi Lu and Fujui Wang established the Soundwatch Studio to promote the sound creation, exhibition, performance and workshopping of experimental audio art, both locally and internationally. Yi Lu pursued MA degree in the Institute of Applied Arts at National Chiao Tung University, She took additional program of art from the Academy of Art University and the San Francisco Art Institute. Yi Lu has drawn on her previous experiences working in education to organise sound art workshops at several prestigious institutions, including The Taipei National University of the Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei, and The National Taiwan Science Education Center and The Shiner Education Foundation.Yi Lu has appeared performances alongside Fujui Wang, with different sound forms of performances. Including the​ ​ “B!as 2015: Taiwan-Belgium Sound Art Exchange Project”​ in Belgium​ and the inaugural performance for “Shoot the Pianist-The Noise Scene in Taipei 1990-95 Exhibition”​ in UK​.

Yi Lu has appeared solo at the “Digitopia Digital Art Festival Taipei 2015”​,​ “Hypersonic 2016”​,​“Generate The Night”​and“Taipei Art District Festival 2016”​, using electromagnetic waves, home-made electronic instruments, circuit bending, hardware hackers, and analog errors to create immersive sonic environments.

✭Sébastien Labrunie 林思柏(波爾多)
Sébastien Labrunie

來自法國的林思柏現居住在台灣,在超過十年的平面視覺設計師與藝術指導經驗累積後,現在正在進行兩種視覺技術的探索,一種為3D虛擬實境的實驗,另一​種​為聲藝裡​視覺​類比錯誤合成的探索。這兩​種視覺​探索不斷互相滋養他創作建構新的靈感和探險。

在他近期創作裡,他專注在探索傳統CRT電視的抽象視覺,這些視覺來自運動感知器的偵測互動與聲音同步的類比視訊訊號,手直接觸摸建構出新裸的再生視覺,帶領觀者更直觀靠近於視​象​與心像的同步。他認為系統錯誤其實會帶來意外的美麗,也視為​​身處日常精美生產​的一股逃離狀態,​和自製網頁裡乾淨圖片的一種喘息。林思柏現工作於一​款​音樂創作VR軟體:LyraVR,也同時與聲音藝術家盧藝組成表演團體:Sondes,​兩​人不斷嘗試新的聲藝音像合作,希望傳達更多新可能性。

After more than 10 years exploring 2D worlds as a graphic designer and art director in France, Sébastien Labrunie is now working at both ends of the visual technology spectrum in Taiwan: 3D Virtual Reality experiments on one side and deconstructed, glitched analog video synthesis explorations in the sound art scene on the other side, one world feeding the other for new inspirations and visual explorations.

In his latest set up he is exploring CRT abstract visual chaos using motion sensors to interact directly with analog video signals synced to sound, touching directly the visuals at the source, sculpting raw visuals by hand and bringing them closer to an organic form synced with both body and mind. System errors welcome beautiful accidents, like an escape from the never-ending daily spiral of the well-produced and clean pictures on our homemade webs. Sébastien is currently working on a VR music creation software called LyraVR and is also performing with the Sound Artist Yi Lu in the collective “Sondes".

✭Q AND A✭
​盧藝:​擁有九年設計背景和一年的VR專案參與經驗的你,是如何影響​你​在Sondes的呈現?
Yi Lu:You had 9​ ​years designer work background and 1 year VR experience , how does that influence in the “Sondes"?​


林思柏:我在視覺與圖像中工作很久,也都只停留在靜止的 2D平面,去年(2015年)我發現一種可以進入VR世界的全新視覺技術,​是​具身歷其境、三維、動作感且同時可以憑身體動作同步的控制器。所以我運用Leap Motion(手勢控制器)在"Sondes"表演中,讓我的視覺更有生命力,變成更敏銳、更互動性。新工具對我而言,可以提供一個​像​遊樂園般​的​場地​,而​去創作更多的即時互動視覺,一種無限制的可能性。
​Seb:I worked with visuals and pictures for a long time. One thing is i only worked with “static" 2D visuals, and new technologies i discovered entering the VR world last year open my mind to a whole new kind of visuals, immersives, tridimensional, in motion, and they could also be synchronized with body movements using motion controllers. I used a Leap Motion in “Sondes" to control and bring life to my 2D visuals, they become more sensitive, more instinctive, and well, more alive! New tools that offers me a whole new playground for doing live visual creations. New tools and endless possibilities!

​盧藝:​什麼樣的圖像或視覺是你想傳遞或介紹給​"Sondes"的觀眾?
Yi Lu:what picture/visual thought do you want to introduce/pass to audience in “Sondes"?​

​​
林思柏:盧藝的聲音創作提供了我一些共感上簡潔與對比的視覺靈感,​所以我選擇黑白視覺的元素,就像黑暗中的一道光,我也希望這些電光元素可以更有機感,所以我使用對稱的手法。對稱充斥在我們生活周遭,甚至也存在在我們自身,很多事物都是一對和雙面的,例如眼睛耳朵、黑與白、光與暗,而這個表演也是我和盧藝的雙人組合,在『Sondes』中我得到了一些反饋,有些觀眾看到了臉和面具藏在這些抽象的線條中,這是我設計這些抽象元素的主要的目的之一,觀眾可以投射他們自身在這些圖形中,讓想像力流暢出來。​
Seb:The raw sound of Yi Lu inspired me pictural simplicity and contrast. That’s why i chose black and white graphical elements, like raw light in darkness. I also wanted this electric light elements to become more “organic", that’s why i used symmetry. Symmetry is all around us, even inside us, many things come in pair of two, eyes, ears, black and white, light and darkness. And for this performance it was a duo team work too. I got some interesting feedback on “Sondes" visuals, some people saw faces and masks hidden in the abstract lines. It’s one of the main purpose of abstract visuals, so people can project themselves inside the pictures generated, and let their imagination flows.

​盧藝:​從你的角度出發​在『Sondes』的聲音與視覺,帶給觀眾什麼樣特別的呈現?
Yi Lu:on your angle to see, “Sondes"with Yi lu’s sound and your audio visual, what kinds of special expression can go to audience?

林思柏:​我認為​『Sondes』​是一個比普通表演更多實驗聲音和互動視覺的表演​,​就像敘述一個抽象故事​,​每個人可能看到或聽到都是不同的​,​依據他們獨立的詮釋​。​他們的想像力可以從聲音的視覺跳躍道另一個,​每次都有新的感受​。
​Seb:I think “Sondes" is a sound and visual experience more than a performance, like an abstract story telling. Everyone could see and ear a different one, depending on their individual perception. Their imagination can jump from a sound painting to another and shape different new feelings each time.

​盧藝:​在『Sondes』表演中​,​什麼是最有趣的?什麼是最有挑戰?​
Yi Lu:in the performance “Sondes",what is the most interesting thing?and most challenging?

​林思柏:​對我來說,最有趣的部分是聲音與視覺的現場團隊合作​,​和​​從聲音​到視覺和​視覺​到​聲音​的​互動​以及​共鳴,​就像一個具創造力的對話​。​而最有挑戰的也許是軟體技術的部份​,以最可能的方式​在舞台上​設置​呈現最佳的技術,​我總是提醒自己保持簡潔​和適應力!
The most interesting thing is the live teamwork between sound and light to me. The interactions and echoes from sound to visuals and from visuals to sound. Like a creative dialog. The most challenging part might be the technical part, making everything work on software side, setting up the stage in the best way possible working with technical limitation and strength of each spaces. I always remind me to keep it simple, adaptation is the key!
