Spectral _ink
An abstraction of the dephts

(Creation : end of 2024)

Sound and light Performance/installation

A visual and sound universe shaped by waves


Whereas in Vis Insita Nicolas Bazoge explored our ambivalent relationship with the contemporary technological world through the symbolism of fire, in this new project he invites us into his introspective and mysterious universe with another element, liquid this time: the ocean.


For Spectral _ink, the ocean Nicolas sets out to explore is the fantastical one he recalls from his childhood, when he spent summer vacations in Brittany with his sisters, the one whose unknown and as yet unexplored depths leave room for all manner of daydreams. An oceanic abstraction.


He imagines links between the expanse of the ocean trenches and the arcana of the human brain. He perceives waves on the water's surface as sound waves, and ocean currents as electromagnetic flows propagating through our neurons. The inhabitants of the deep transform themselves into strange luminous spectres in his mind.


With the help of a light scenography interacting with the music, the spectator is invited to plunge progressively into this immersive sensory experience that puts his imagination to the test. The combination of visual motifs and spatialized sounds that emerge from the darkness may resonate with them like unfathomable memories or submerged perspectives.
