La machine à cadavre exquis

Pascal Robitaille


La machine à cadavre exquis was devised to generate and read out exquisite corpses using a random mechanical sequencer.

Balls fell on different sensors to compose sentences. The idea was to express chance by giving it a vocabulary.

Pascal Robitaille was initially invited by Avatar for a more modest audio project, but he quickly discovered the possibilities of electronics and decided to push the interactive dimension of the project further. Frédérique Laliberté created an electronic and software interface for the piece.
