A new audiovisual work from Paris-based Alex Augier places the artist at the centre of four gigantic screens, where he uses a modular synthesiser to produce music ranging from minimalist washes of sound to pummelling, skittering beats. Broadcast through four speakers, the soundscape surrounds and immerses the viewer. On the screens, patterns of light are generated live in response to the music – drifting woozily at quieter moments, then bursting into frantic activity as the music gathers pace. A shadowy figure lurking in the deep space at the heart of these layers of light, Augier is part-musician, part-magician.
