QUADRI(+)CROMIES
   
 

Quadri[+]Chromies brings together the video pictures of Bernard Caillaud and the electronic music of Hector Zazou.
Images and music are generated by computer. Colors and sounds seem to dialogue in a strange mechanical music that becomes understood by the spectator.
Hector Zazou has composed a serie of pieces for electronic and strings.
Brilliant musicians like David Sylvian, Brian Eno, Ryuichi Sakamato, Peter Buck et Bill Rieflin (from REM) have been involved in the recording sessions.
Quadri[+]Chromies is presented two ways (which can be complementary):
1 - An installation : Every monitor has its painting and its music, which evolve into infinity, never repeating themselves.
2 - A concert : The paintings are projected onto one to four screens (the images use a format of 5X6 meters) and the music is broadcast in 5.1. Hector Zazou who manages all the electronic parts is backed by strings and woods.

Quadri[+]Chromies was created in concert in Florence (Festival Fabbrica
Europa) in May 2002, and performed in Moscow in October 2003, Monterrey
(Mexico) in October 2004 and Sofia (Bulgaria) in March 2005, Paris (France) February 3rd and March 7th & 8th.
