Trombe is a collaboration project of Patrick Saint-Denis and Patrick Beaulieu.
"Trombe is part of a suite of pieces for solo instrument and automated objects. These works are about developing a relationship between an object from the real world (a bird feather, a signal lamp, etc.) and a solo instrument using different technological tools ranging from live video and audio processing to simple robotics. The interactions between the objects and the instruments are oriented in order to have the multiple significations of the objects “transfer” themselves on the music. In this work, a special attention is given to the spatial qualities of the video projection by integrating the performer inside of it. Finally, a trombe in French is a very active storm carrying large amount of water." See more;
