Musician and multidisciplinary artist, Alex Augier develops digital aesthetics from a musical and transversal perspective, including sound, visual and formal materials. These elements dialogue within the scenic space and mainly take the form of audiovisual performances. He considers this art as a specific field of creation where each element is definitively linked in a singular form, coherent and interpreted as a single piece.

 

The transversality of the projects seeks to free oneself from traditional forms, to imagine new ways of performing, to create unique spaces specifically adapted to their diffusion and to offer the public a unique experience. Vitruvian Man by Da Vinci remains the guiding thread of this aesthetic research. Universalism of the Renaissance echoes digital multidisciplinarity of today. Alex Augier thus defends a global vision of the creative process where design, technology and programming are an integral part of the artistic project. His « low-level » creative approach involves know-how in the fields of sonic and visual synthesis and programming, raw material for the future works.

These performances include oqpo_oooo nominated for the Les Bains Numeriques prize in 2016 ; _nybble_ presented in the Electro exhibition in 2019 to illustrate the new A/V lives (Philharmonie de Paris) ; end(O) an immersive artwork for geodesic dome ; p(O)st, pr(-) and hex(A) which develop an original audiovisual spatialization technique and interface design.

He also creates installations, records and compositions, alone or in collaboration. He collaborates with visual artists Guillaume Marmin, Alba G. Corral, Heather Lander, Julie Ramage, Marina L, Damien Bourniquel. His work is presented in international festivals: Ars Electronica (Linz), Mutek (Buenos Aires, Tokyo), Elektra (Montreal), Sonar (Barcelona), LEV (Gijon), Scopitone (Nantes), Nemo (Paris), Media Ambition Tokyo (Tokyo), Sonica (Glasgow), Festival de la Musica (Morelia), 360° (Moscow), Festival de la Imagen (Manizales)…
