Byzantium

 

Byzantium
(Exomène)

Byzantium was inspired by reading W B Yeats, one of the poets suggested by the librarian in private conversation.

French artist Exomène is a soundsmith and digital apothecary.

A soundsmith because he works sounds like a potter his clay, or a blacksmith his metal: hammering, stretching, twisting sounds until they fit all together into a coherent piece of music.

As a digital apothecary, his approach is quite the same: playing with an abstract material as if it was physical in a more experimental way. The sound in itself is no longer triturated but what generates it is subjected to several techniques: data-bending, generativity, algorithm, glitch…

These two approaches stem from the same mysticism that holds abstract and physical materials are the same thing in different realms.
