Pour le festival « Extension », la Muse en Circuit propose la rencontre inédite de deux créateurs d’univers différents, Aurelia Ivan et eRikm. Ensemble, ils ont accepté le défi d’une création éphémère.
C’est l’histoire d’une rencontre où la notion d’accident est centrale. L’accident portant en lui autant d’anomalies, de défauts, de défaillances, d’imprévus ou d’erreurs qui déplacent les mécanismes habituels de création et de représentation.

In December 1914, Shackleton set sail with his 27-man crew, many of
whom, it is said, had responded to the following recruitment notice : "Men
wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages. Bitter cold. Long months of
complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honour and
recognition in case of success. -Ernest Shackleton."
this restored version of the film has been construted by the national film
and television archive from a wide range of materials.
the NFTVA has applied its own tinting and toning to match the original prints,
and has produced this handsome and richly coloured testament to a remarkable
episode in the history of exploration

film action : Gaelle Rouart & Etienne Caire
HyperScope is a new project from Levox - squeezing fresh filmic juice from all those discarded cinematic lemons. Expertly exploiting elaborate optical techniques and sharp, encyclopedic musical juxtapositions, both filmmakers and musician playfully corral the whole gamut of dramatic cinema’s legacy ; it’s stereotypes, its sentimental pronouncements, its fatal dénouements ; reconstituted and reworked by hand, coloured, cropped, re-shot and re-printed ; soundtracks layered, slowed, sped up and reformed.
Gaelle Rouard and Etienne Caire extract HyperScope’s imagery from what seems like hundreds of different films - overlaid, combined and contrasted in a rainbow of new meanings and impossible scenarios, and with the unsettling feel of daylight shadows or midnight bird-song. In a flow of colours and dramatic intrigue the unknown sits next to the known, and perhaps draws some strange new meaning from it.
Meanwhile eriKm brings his patent-pending, made-in -France broken-punk take on Musique Concrète, derived from an approach to turntables that seems just, you know : beyond. As with the filmmakers, the sound is culled and ripped from film soundtracks ; reworked, and layered into half-rhythms of inchoate screams and slammed car doors marking out time. In the end, its this new soundtrack that grips the rudder while light and chemical swirl about in an organic, polymorphing maelstrom.
All in all, a dizzying and intense experience, full of compressed narratives and real drama.
