Over the past ten years, Tomoko Sauvage has been developing her unique electroacoustic instrument Waterbowls, which combines water, hydrophones (underwater microphones) and porcelain and glass bowls. Tomoko creates sculptural and fluid timbres through techniques such as random percussion with water drops, hydrophonic feedback controlled by hand-generated waves of water, and porous terracotta creating singing bubbles in the liquid.Her musical experiments are based on a live performance practice that explores improvisation and interaction with the environment. By augmenting primal elements with technology, through ritualistic but playful gestures, Sauvage’s work animates, contemplates, tunes and connects with the material and the immaterial, maintaining a fragile balance between chance and mastery.
Since the beginning of her practice, Elise Peroi's work in weaving and the void has expressed that which passes through – breath, the atmosphere… For Sous-tendre, she draws inspiration from vines that connect and intertwine like countless organs moving between heaven and earth.
They grow in all directions, at once spreading out and reaching out with an almost rhizome-like character, forming a network architecture.
Their fluid movement through space could be seen as a race, both soaring in the air and creeping on the ground, in constant dialogue with their surroundings, creating support points and points of exchange.
