Maxime Corbeil-Perron: Imaginary Optics I & II Live Av


Maxime Corbeil-Perron is a composer and audiovisual artist whose work has been noticed by many international competitions and events. His work has been qualified as “pushing the boundaries of abstraction” and “defying any explication or labelling”. A polymorphous artists active for more than a decade in music, video and digital arts.

Audiovisual performances Imaginary Optics I&II incorporates stereoscopic anaglyph (3D, Red Cyan) image, analog video synthesis, 3D digital image synthesis, and real-time sound and image processing, to create a powerful immersive experience. This retro-futurist work explores audiovisual abstraction enhanced by the possibilities of obsolete optical technologies, which are then themselves enhanced by contemporary software.

Imaginary Optics is a work of media archeology: reviving by the act of creation, technologies and medias that are now considered obsolete. Stereoscopic anaglyphs (3D, Red/Cyan) provide perceptions of space, texture and visual relief that have not yet been deeply explored in audiovisual performance and composition. Hence, this work explores different ways of exploiting the anaglyph media : from abstract geometry, to a mixture of 2D analog video and 3D digital image, and finally ending in purely abstract stereoscopic optical textures, moving into a realm of hyper haptic visuality.
