Videospread during Toronto’s Nuit Blanche 2009, Canada.

As part of Nuit Blanche Toronto 2009, Videospread is pleased to present Laurent Chambert’s installation “T256 – Music and Game”. The installation will be hosted by Edward Epstein’s Gallery 345 during Toronto’s sleepless contemporary art night, Saturday October 3rd!

 

Originally conceived and produced in 1999, T256 is a visual labyrinth composed of animated sequences connected to each other by hypertext links. The first digital version was released in June 2000 and presented at the Contemporary Art Centre in Castres, France.

The concept of this new version is based on the creation of dedicated electronic music partitions for every sequence of the original visual project (12 sequences in total). The installation is composed of a screening of T256 (a virtual visit)
and a performed musical combination/arrangement, following the course of the visual elements projected.

The installation/performance is designed as a game, made up of 5 different moments during which the audience is be able to view and listen to the artist’s live performance. During the artist’s time off (not performing), T256 continues to show different sequences of its labyrinth. The audience is invited to choose the access to the different visual sequences.
