Through the study of Rem Koolhaas’s and other architectural theoretician’s texts, as well as other records, and after having made referential researches in music and files, a musician and an artist have been able to develop a shape shifting play.
Their complementary contributions, in words of media and personal universes, enabled to elaborate an audiovisual performance which mingles electro-acoustic music, video, architecture and voice. These items rebuild the mixing, the coincidence, the variety and the accumulation one can find in New York City. The spectator wanders through a city – already imaginary – thanks to a ringing spatialization, a witness to depth and travelling, as well as a visual editing upon two screens where verticality asserts itself and, from time to time, anamorphosis oppose itself.
