“Unsculpt” is an audiovisual performance by Myriam Bleau, exploring and deconstructing new sounds from an upcoming release. It features hybrid electronic music, mixing modular synths with digital synthesis and algorithms in Supercollider. Techniques of convolution, imitation, re-amplification and parallelism contribute to a sense of ambiguity between the sound sources, creating new assemblages of materials and textures. The performance also features the artist’s own visuals for the first time, using generative processes, 3D and machine learning to navigate through shifting architectures.
