During the development phase of the PropulseART
project, several multimedia experiments and networked public events have taken place. The main goal was to provide artists from different fields access to a whole new world of innovation:
- Ab Joyis based on the parceling of body and space, both real and imaginary. By splitting the performing stage into two remote physical locations linked through the network, "Ab Joy" created a third space, imaginary yet common to both locations.
- Ping Pong feedbackTwo DVJs are physically separated and linked together via IP. Each of the performing artists manipulates the audio and video data before sending the result back to his or her counterpart who then applies the same process creating a creative loop.
- Motifs Urbains is a collective networked animation performance. Two artists produce a perpetual audiovisual loop based on stop-motion, sound effects, rhythms and vocals.
- SAT-W2, Raw Materials creates an exclusive type of relationship between the performing artists and the public. VJs located at the SAT in Montreal and at the W2 center in Vancouver integrate content sent by the members of both audiences via mobile phone and/or computer using the Raw Materials technology.
- RÉCRÉATION produced a live performance by the musicians of The National Parcs who were physically 900 km away from one another, one in Montréal and the other in Gaspé. They were able to perform together in real-time using the audio and sound transmission bridges available in the PropulseART software.
