instantaneous composition

I approach instantaneous composition as a space for experimentation and sharing, and which allows me to nourish interdisciplinary research.
Moreover, it is an approach that finds its source in numerous references, including Dadaism, the literary movement Oulipo, the “86 aspects of composition” by the composer Mike Vargas or the work “Making: Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture”” by the anthropologist Tim Ingold.

J’aborde la composition instantannée comme un espace d’expérimentation et de partage, et qui me permet de nourrire une recherche interdisciplinaire.
Par ailleurs c’est une démarche qui trouve sa source dans de nombreuses références, en passant par le dadaïsme, le mouvement littéraire Oulipo, les “86 aspects of composition” du compositeur Mike Vargas ou encore l’ouvrage “Making: Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture” de l’anthropologue Tim Ingold.


„Making: Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture (2013). In this book, the Anthropolog Tim Ingold explores the idea that the thought processes of makers and the materials they use are in a continuous process of correspondence and becoming through one another.

Ingold argues that creativity emerges from within an ongoing, improvisational process between makers, materials and other non-human things such as tools and the physical environment. These non-human play an active role in influencing the thought processes of the maker and vice-versa. The creation of objects and learning transpires from within complex and reciprocal relations between these forces. This suggests that new objects and artefacts such as artworks, are not produced from humans projecting ready-made thoughts onto the materials as this approach “… leaves out the very creativity of the processes where both things, and ideas are generated. They (the new objects and artefacts) are generated on one hand in the flows and transformations of materials and on the other hand in the movement of the imagination and the sensory awareness of the maker… (Ingold, 2012).” Artworks become moments of materialised intensity that work to constitute a much larger, expansive and continuously interconnected network of relations.” (Article wroted by Louisa Penfold, 2017)
