November Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th at ACROE in Grenoble took place the first atelier of the project Art de la scène et numérique  (Performing art and digital technology) part of the european project Alcotra: Acteurs Transculturels. (Cross Cultural Actors) :


Projet Art de la scène et numérique ACROE-ICA, Grenoble, November 2014 - February 2015

The project has as its objectives to support and encourage the artistic practice with artists in fields of music and dance coming from partner territories of the project (Hautes-Halpes, France and Piedmont, Italy), with the aim of overtaking the geographical and thematic borders between various modes of artistic expression.

The artist involved are Isabelle Mazuel (living in Mont Dauphine), choreographer and dancer (and the musicians (composers and performers of instrumental and electronic music) David Bonnefoux (Gap), Simone Longo (Cuneo) and Mario Valsania (Montà d'Alba).

The first atelier was finalized to introduce GENESIS, physical modelling musical software conceived and produced by ACROE, within the artists involved and to give them the opportunity of a first personal contact and exchange of experiences. A copy and a license of the software will be at disposal of each artist for the full period of the project

The group, coordinated by Giuseppe Gavazza (composer, PhD Student at ACROE and teacher at Cuneo Music Conservatory) will work till end of February 2015 on a collaborative creative artistic project that will be defined in the details throughout a remote continuous workshop and meetings in December and January to prepare the public presentation of state of the art of the projects at the end of February 2015, probably in Grenoble and/or in Gap and/or in Cuneo.

the artists involved: 

Isabelle Bazin Mazuel : dancer, choreographer, teacher of contemporary dance, artistic director of the festival Vetical'été.
As a choreographer, I have often matched the use of video with the creation of live music;  it appears that the image usually brings a close introspective dimension.  The themes are devoted to encounters and inward universes. the human and the dancer, are individuals in the middle of a whole but are also components of it. This is where  inwardness and hugeness are confronted and make sense. 

David Bonnefoux : French musician, composer and producer. Holds an Electroacoustic composition prize in the class of Bernard FORT (E.N.M. Villeurbanne) and a D.E.A. in musicology (Université Lumière Lyon 2). His catalog of works includes many musical compositions "acousmatic" [music for choreography, storytelling (edition GMVL Lyon), exhibitions ...].
