8 musical pieces originally composed for site-specific and installation work for Antivj Label

Ecume is a selection of musical pieces written by Thomas Vaquié for the AntiVJ visual label. Each one of these pieces has originally been composed for site specific and installation work, always in close relationship with the images and the setting where the projects were taking place. They have then been adapted and compiled to offer an insight of each one of these worlds outside the context of the installation.

Yannick Jacquet turned the album's tracks into physical waveforms.

A visualisation tool, developed by coder/artist Simon Geilfus, allowed to analyze the album’s waveforms and create a topographical imagery of Thomas’ compositions. Yannick Jacquet explored two types of visualizations: a circular one, and a linear one. These sonic landscapes became 3D models that could be physically 3D printed. A silicone mould was then made from that print, which itself was used to create a concrete cast. Finally, under the right lighting, arose what we were aiming for: a photography of Ecume.

All the ECUME project has been possible thanks to the work, the patience and the cares of Nicolas Boritch.

All songs composed, and mixed by Thomas Vaquié
