Two INTERFACES projects will be presented during this Manifeste:
- PIAZZA 2/6/2017
The festival will open with the PREMIERE of the "Piazza" on 2/6/2017 ( 22:30) at Place George Pompidou.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Centre Pompidou and IRCAM, the Japanese artist and fog sculptor Fujiko Nakaya will make the Centre Pompidou disappear.Stephen O’Malley and Peter Rehberg transform the Piazza into an electronic stage. The three artists have worked together on several occasions, particularly on productions by Gisèle Vienne presented in the Centre Pompidou’s Grande salle. Their outdoor work in situ is an electronic scenography that, beginning with the timbre of alpenhorns, spreads out into the public space. The admission is FREE.

- 10/6/2017 SOUND & VISION (A LIQUID ROOM)
The perfomance "Sound & Vision travels for the last time for this year in Paris during the Manifeste 2017.
Ictus’ Liquid Room reimagines the traditional concert format. Several stages, unexpected transitions, amplification and meticulous lighting, unusual durations: a miniature festival. Audience members are free to walk around the sound space, to choose their listening angle, to punctuate their comings and goings between "attentive" and "immersive" listening. A match is struck in the night, amplified a thousand times.Dusk-like lighting transforms the way we hear a recent work from the repertoire, Sciarrino, Pesson, or Bedrossian.An installation by Alvin Lucier—a guitar string the size of a marine rope—overlaps James Tenney’s exploration of the tamtam’s resonances.Ula Sickle and Yann Leguay work with a strobe light and sound. The prices for the tickets start from 10/25/30€.
Sound&Vision bridges the intersections between music and visual performance. This is undoubtedly the major concert of a new generation for whom the musical—the musical gesture—circulates between eye and ear.
