Pantin | Bande Originale | 08/2014

∏-node meeting in Paris from July 21 to August 10, during Bande Originale event 2014. Π-node was dispateched as a radio infrastructure, all along the canal de l'ourcq, from the Place Stalingrad in Paris to the CND in Pantin Saint-Martin. Π-node was also a continous research laboratory on radio contemporary practises, held in the CND, Pantin. In addition, four performance moments were carried out collectively: in the CND (26/06), in the Parc de la Villette (2/08), Le Placard (3/08), 6B (9/08).

CND Pantin - 26 july


Location: Centre National de la Danse (CND), 1 Rue Victor Hugo, 93500 Pantin, France
Frequency: 108MHzFM
26 July, 6PM-8PM

Through a composition of different vectors of radiophonic transmission, sounds will collide and resonate deploying themselves in the vertiginous brutalist architecture of the CND and its irregular spaces, playing radio waves in a form of an hertzian acousmonium troubled by the concrete structures. All frequencies will cross the static fields of reclusive ghosts confined in the corners of the asymmetrical staircase of the Atrium, eluding the complex tridimensional surfaces of the building. Long ago an administrative center, the echoes of footsteps going down the staircase, rumbles of frustrated voices and the fatal falls are still resonating; the sliding of the children concrete skaters following their deceived or received parents down the way are still there. The use of radio transmissions will invoke all these memories, inviting them to resurge.

Canal Installation - 19 july > 11 august

Location: Canal de l'Ourcq
19 july > 11 august
Several radio transceivers hybrid FM/Web are installed along the Canal de l'Ourcq. The audience is invited to contribute, sending sounds to the pi-boxes, on the principle of an open mic (through the web, or simply calling with their phones).
The sounds will be relayed from one emitter to the other, feeding a feedback loop set inbetween the different emitters. The modules communicate between each others sending data on the radio waves, on infrafrequencies. The specific radio interferences will constitute tu driving force of the transofrmation of the feedback loop, creating a sonic texture that will slowly evolve, mirroring the singular sound quality of the radio medium, taken as a sound genertor as a data transfer communication tool.
