“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)….

Cinzia Campolese said just one project changed her life direction. Her last project at the Architecture University of Florence in Italy, a sound reactive RGB LED lights on Luminex fabric, “Concerto per Musica Cromatica”, moved her away from a classical set, costume design and production what she focused on during her school into audiovisual technology. Totally, a new door was opened for her.
