Dynamic Sound Image Environment, 2003

Cecile Babiole, Laurent Dailleau, and Atau Tanaka create together a dynamic sound/image environment. S.S.S. is a trio performing visual music with sensors and gestures. They create a work of sound and sight, a laptop performance that goes beyond with the intensity of bodies in movement. Going beyond media: music that is more than a soundtrack, images going further than video wallpaper. A three-way conversation modulating sonic and luminous pulse and flow.

Sensors capture gesture and corporeal movement, translating them into digital data:
- Ultrasound sensors measure the distance between the performer's hands and her machine, allowing her to articulate 3D imagery, navigating in color, scale, texture...
- The Theremin, historical electronic instrument invented in 1919, an oscillator responds to perturbations of electrostatic fields based on the distance of the hands and body to the instrument...
- The BioMuse places gel electrodes on the performer’s forearms, analyzing EMG biosignals. Muscle tension through concentrated movement allows the musician to sculpt sound synthesis.

S.S.S.'s singular approach brings them to present their work in a wide range of contexts in music and the digital arts. They are equally at home performing in galleries or underground spaces, in arts centers or research laboratories.
