ex(O) – Alex Augier & Alba G. Corral

ex(O) is a singular audiovisual performance merging the aesthetics and technical researches of musician Alex Augier and visual artist Alba G. Corral into a transversal and coherent artistic proposition, focusing on what turns out to be an original and hypermedia-specific pathway.

Sound, image, space and time fuse perfectly into a formally unique synesthetic entity: poetic hypermedia, oniric and organic, deployed in the space under the control of the two performers.

The conception of this hypermedia piece implies that no dimension takes control over the other but instead completes and enriches it. The proposition puts aside the work where image and sound are used for their illustrative, informative or narrative aspects and to put into focus what appears to be an original and hypermedia-specific pathway.


Alex Augier is an electronic musician based in Paris. His work focuses on hybrid digital aesthetics in a musical and transversal perspective, including sound and visual elements. These elements interact with the space and take mainly the form of singular audiovisual performances. He defends an overview of the creative process where design, programming and technology are an integral part of the artistic project. His works have been presented at international festivals including Ars Electronica (Linz/AT), L.E.V (Gijon/ES), Scopitone (Nantes/FR), Media Ambition Tokyo (Tokyo/JP), Mapping (Geneva/CH), Open Source Art (Gdansk/PL), Multiplicidade (Rio/BR), Athens Digital Arts Festival (Athenes/GR), Nemo (Paris/FR), Sonica (Glasgow/UK)…

” Metidos en una maya circular con sus figuras enfrentadas, comenzaron la que probablemente fuese la actuación que más nos sorprendió de todas las jornadas. En un primer acto se distinguieron una serie sonidos violentos que iban acompasando el movimiento de los visuales. Como si de una bso de seres mitológicos se tratara, siguieron con un discurso perfectamente compenetrado. Sin duda, se trató de una experimentación sonora con un guión original y con transiciones muy acertadas. La expresión estática de Alba, contrastaba con la energía de movimientos de Alex, que por momentos parecía poseídoLo que realmente hizo que nos quedáramos estupefactos, fue el modo en el que Alba manejaba los visuales de tal manera que se extendieran más allá de la maya, para utilizar el propio teatro como una superficie adicional y así prologar su arte. La estructura suponía el núcleo de donde emanaba energía en forma de luz, sonido y movimiento. Los instrumentos acústicos como chelos u órganos se transformaban en sonidos metálicos y vibraciones artificiales. Una verdadera obra de arte que nos puso los pelos de punta de principio a fin.”
