Migration was originally written for Spoken Worms, a sound and videoscaped spoken poetry project with Dorianne Wotton (video) and Marianne (text). Migration is the depiction of an inner trip where the person experiencing the trip has difficulties to get rid of what confines one into his body. This lack of abandonment endangers the sanity of the tripper when he/she comes close to the edge of him/her-self.
French artist Exomène is a soundsmith and digital apothecary.
A soundsmith because he works sounds like a potter his clay, or a blacksmith his metal: hammering, stretching, twisting sounds until they fit all together into a coherent piece of music.
As a digital apothecary, his approach is quite the same: playing with an abstract material as if it was physical in a more experimental way. The sound in itself is no longer triturated but what generates it is subjected to several techniques: data-bending, generativity, algorithm, glitch…
These two approaches stem from the same mysticism that holds abstract and physical materials are the same thing in different realms.
