Launched in the autumn of 2017, La Manutention is a new format which encourages exploration and experimentation, by giving artists the opportunity to develop their practices and produce original performances during four evenings spread out over a month, thus allowing the public to discover a piece and follow its evolution.
From 18/10/2018 to 8/11/2018: NSDOS
At once a producer, dancer and hacker, NSDOS has imagined a new sonic and visual order, by unhinging technological tools, and creating a link between machines and matter. He collects living data, using sensors or virtually surrealistic set-ups, then injects them into the rectilinear frame of techno to turn them into an organic matrix. For La Manutention, he is inviting the public to push back the limits of the body, objects and sounds, along with him.
After studying dance, NSDOS, aka Kirikoo Des, sought out how to create sounds across which he could place his movements. He then developed an alternative approach to music – through abstraction. Then came two maxis (2013 and 2015) released by the Parisian label “clekcleckboom recordings”, and the self-produced Money Exchange, in 2016. His first album, Intuition, released in two parts (2017 and 2018) was the successful outcome of this approach. Composed in Alaska, outdoors, inspired by weather stations and according to a principle of “bio feedback”, the artist explored the surrounding elements so as to transform them into data, then into sonic textures, layerings and rhythms.
