“I simply love Madmapper because it is handy and so precise.” by Jacques-André Dupon

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?
Jacques-André Dupont: I’m Jacques-André Dupont, a French-Colombian AV artist, and performer based in Berlin.
I studied media and masters in film post production. After a short experience in the cinema special effects industry in Paris, I decided to develop my activity around motion design and video production for greater creative freedom. After two hard working years in Paris, my new life in Berlin was a bowl of fresh air. I took the time to develop my artistic work and played live visuals in different techno clubs and festivals. I was interested in the interaction between light and matter, how to bring my creations outside the screen, onto tangible surfaces. Since I was following the VJ scene, I was very inspired by the amazing works of some “Daddies” of the video mapping like the 1024 Architecture or AntiVj.

1. Tell us about yourself

I’m an electronic musician, based in Paris. I started to play drums and piano in my childhood. But my main interest has always been music composition. Like many people, that’s how I was lead to using computers to make music. The simple recorder at a first time and then as a specific musical tool for sound design, composition and production (electronic music).

Then, I discovered MaxMSP and started experimenting transversal proposals because I love music, but also visual, design, architecture… In order to deepen my work, I attended the « Computer Music Designer Master 2 » in 2013 (University Jean Monnet, Saint-Etienne, FR). Then, I was computer music designer – trainee at Theatre de la Renaissance (Lyon, FR) and at IRCAM (Paris, FR), where I improved my work in synthesis, control and spatialization of the sound. I was selected in great workshops allows me to work with Robert Henke (2014) and Scanner (2015), allows me to experiment multichannel sound diffusion, generative music, audiovisual links…

In the same period, Stereolux helped me to create my first audiovisual project: oqpo_oooo. First presentation at Scopitone Festival 2014 (Nantes, FR). Then, I presented this works at international festivals including Elektra (Montreal/CA), Open Source Art Festival (Gdansk/PL), Lab30 (Augsburg/DE), BAM (Liege/BE), Digital Choc (Tokyo/JP)….

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?
Adrien Boulanger & Michaël Ventura: When we saw Boris Edelstein, a founder of MadMapper, started working with LED light mapping, we decided to develop our project. We like an installation with new technologies in an old environment. The Zoo in Geneva, where a part of Mapping Festival happens, was a great place to test out our project and gave us a great inspiration!

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?

Jeanne: I’ve been making X media for about 16 years (X = web, graphic, digital, video, interactive, multi, trans, creative, etc.) I got my first job as a Web Designer in High School, and I think I’ve always been on this path; of playing and making things with visual and digital mediums, and working with technology. I fell in love with projectors in college, and started VJing and making visuals at parties and collaborating with other artists that I met, who were also always making or performing with visuals or sound. I’m thankful for all the amazing people I’ve met over the years who inspire and challenge me to keep making. I’ve been working as a hands-on producer of exhibit media at NYHS for 3.5 years, and I’ve found it super rewarding and have learned a lot about developing the narrative.
