with Grégoire Lorieux, Computer Music Tutor
Using motion capturing devices in composition and performance process. 
Arboretum: of myths and trees for soprano, 2 flutes, harp, piano and live electronics, was created during the framework of the IRCAM Cursus 2 (2012-2013). The presentation will center around the artistic impetus of capturing the physical gestures of the musicians, the means of production for the electronics, the encounter with sensors and its eventual contextualisation as part of a musical work.
