. 2014 Tour. There was lot of new music creation last year 2013. 2 of them are retained to tour around the World. The one is the Ephemerode Cards of Chrone, the nonoctave octophonic anamorphic piano recital performed with usual audio and musical equipment. This music is a start of a revolution for the next generation of musicians: it includes the new nonoctave harmony, the anamorphosis of musical instruments all being trajectorized in real 3D space. There is 2 Ephemerodes: one alive (me) and one ghost (in the computer memory). The Ephemerode worksheet. Studio album, and live album.

The Tetalab a group of computer programmers (C++, Pure Data, etc.) wants to joint the Ephemerode Cards of Chrone performance to shoot the 1984 3D score in the octographic cube.

The second one is The SECRET a noncultural acoustic duo music with no P.A. It involves myself playing Asian acoustic musical instrument (Dan Tranh & Erhu & Tanbür) plus my nonoctave electric guitar and the inharmonic analogue synthesizer EA/Korg, together with the young musician Bertrand Fraysse playing percussion and gong drums. The focus of the music is to reach the sublime: simple and effective. Both concert are convivial, we are playing among the audience in a warm and friendly atmosphere. A different way to communicate with music outside usual classical stage performance. The Secret first album. Page

The third 2014 project is to assemble young musicians to form the Anarkia Symphonic Space Orchestra to create Uncultural Hypnotic Sublime music in Toulouse and elsewhere. Page of registration

This year we will start the production of my next opera TOLERANCIA for 2016 with Mix'Art Myrys and the Ring theater.



. 2013 starts with the release of the soundtracks for the film l'Amour de son Prochain (Love thy Neighbour) directed by Benoit Maestre. 12 Musical cultural stereotypes with a disconcerting ingredient for the Benoit Maestre's movie: Love thy Neighbour. The 68mn album of music will be available soon for free download.

. In February the 21, the duet with Aloof Proof (1997, 2006, 2013) will come back like each decade, this time in Barcelona titled: 2 1 0 2 2 0 1 3 - A BRIEF RETURN TO EARTH. I would play Chinese violin jinghu and analogue Japanese synthesiser the Korg Mono/Poly. After 40 minutes of performing, the concert was forbidden violently by the police (forced evacuation of the art gallery). Check the album here.

. A performance in New York city of Try To Catch Me Charles! 3D space music with a strings trio playing Envoûtant d'Amour should happen (no confirmation yet) Captivating Love. The performance is canceled for April by the organization of the NYC Electroacoustiic Music Festival due to the difficulty to create the performance. The strings trio is too hard to play by the cellist Madeleine Shapiro says the Emeritus Professor Hubert S. Howe, Jr: "insane, not politically correct, and not easy to perform music". People from NYC are still arrogant.

. In June meeting with the drummer Bertrand Fraysse which gives a concert the 22 the Myster Shadow-Sky's Plan with Friends, the first step of a new musical style mixing gong drums, analogue synthetizers, and modified electric guitar. The next concert should be in September with one or two opera singers and other musicians. Not rock, not jazz, not electro, not serious, but something else with no name: the emergence of a new musical style.

. Radiom interview of the myster shadow-sky the June 6th: LISTEN

. A big project of spatial music, this time with 7 artificial piano in space performed as a live recomposition with the multipiano musical extended instrument (with computer). A recomposition of Les Ephemerodes Cardent des Chrones written in 1984. Accompanied by 4 opera singers teached by 4 foreign different Arabic poets (different arabic languages) what to sing. This part will be adapted from: Les Atirnons Erreurs des Temps written also in 1984. This 3D space music (with vertical turbulent trajectories) will continue to experiment winds, fog and shadows (live space light painting) in concert hall space in counterpoint with flying polyphonic nonoctavian music including the Artificial Space Girls Choir with Flying Preverbal Baby Voice. The first residency will be in December 10 to 22 at Mix'Art Myrys in Toulouse, and the world premiere in 2014 (with the opera singers). The difficulty to release the Ephemerodes & the Atirnons' music due to the cross social class organization: the Western rich opera administration mixing with a Western poor squat of independent artists mixing the poets from Arabic countries mixing with the high technology making real 3D spatial moving sounds (with elevation), the first rehearsals of the music ceremony has been postponed until winter 2013, and the world premiere has no date yet: 2014?

. The continuation of writting BANG BANG .0 for circular space orchestra of 61+1 musicians. I should end Les Tueurs de Trombes for trombone quartet trying to find them: looking for trombone quartet to work it out. The strings trio Envoûtant d'Amour cannot find its world premiere: New-York was canceled and San Francicco seems too, being canceled or unstarted.




2012. The main focus is to release Un Voyage au Bout du Possible de l'Homme where the orchestra will be in residency between April 18 to 28 2012 at Mix'Art Myrys where the next step will happen the October 25 in Toulouse. The purpose is to resolve difficulties like the musical instrument of 3D winds in permanent fog mixed with acoustic, electric, and electronic musical instrument. The Screaming Women Choir is a part of the music (see the Manual of Screaming Women Choir) screaming the Tiqqun Theorie de la Jeune Fille texts, with the Artificial Girl Choir texting Georges Bataille. Also a string trio (violin, cello, contrabass) which will play a dedicated score Envoûtant d'Amour (In You So Much spellbinding Love) as a part included in time with the trombone quartet playing a dedicated score: (Leur Sexes Tueurs de Trombes) the Whirlwind Players. The music was done incomplete. Musical projects performed in part as a world premiere in 2012: Un voyage au bout du possible de l'homme with 5 to 16 musicians.

Nowadays [2012] the purpose is to try to rebuild a space music lab with the broken devices and the missing devices to produce polyphonic spatial music (i.e. several trajectories of playing musical instrument sounds flying and reacting each other in 3D space). The spatial music works mostly with 3 combined hardware space machines : the SP1 (broken space processor) of Anadi Martel, the Orfeusz 206 of WAF, and the circular Doppler of GRM Tools with the Digidesign 442 connected on an old Macintosh Power PC 8100. Musical instruments to build the orchestra are various like analogue synthesizers (EMS VCS3, Korg Monopoly), MIDI synthesizer (Yamaha TG77), samplers (Roland S750, SP700 and Kontakt 2 which has a surround panner up to 16 outputs), musical object like the Archisonic Lamp, musical instruments from the world (as gong wadon and flute from Bali, harp from Colombia, broken clarinet from Turkey, Chinese violin called jinghu, etc.), and invented or transformed musical instruments (arcoguitar, 9 tone electric guitar, pvc sax, etc., and adapted Chinese jinghu with wooden stick bow on one string). The music is recorded in a PC computer as multitrack recorder and should be performed with MIDI controllers and live instruments on 8 loudspeakers setting a cube where the audience would be inside, where sounds are flying through their bodies. Wolrd premiere in September 2012 in Frabrezan French Corbières at the Son MiRé festival : Scary Music for the "end of the world" with Henri Demillecamps. Instead of making scary music (too easy) it will be a concerto with an octophonic orchestra of small wood percussion and trumpet (the EMS VCS3 is in bad state...) called Try to Catch Me, Charles! World premiere the 8th of September, and the 28th in Lyon.

myster shadow-sky starts a new opera Bellone the Slope of War where the world premiere should be in Den Haag Netherland in 2014.

Also +:
I started to write a next piece: Bang Bang .0 for Choir (32 voices), strings orchestra (12), trombones (7), electric guitar (5), and percussion (3). The ring orchestra will surround the audience with moving acoustic sound in space.

"After working the Artificial Girls Speaking Choir (synthesized voices for Un Voyage au Bout du Possible de l'Homme) saying Georges Bataille texts,
after putting in music the poet Gherassim Luca who died in 1995, first the poem: 'passionnement'.
I have an old work still in waiting with my friend who unfortunately died too young, the poet Rob Siciliano based in Toronto. luckily, he made a CD in 1996 called 'Flammable' where his voice is still alive for friends like me. I am in process of restoring that record of 36 poems (in my way of making his voice touchable - not far away) that should be published at centrebombe for free download, like other records. Also I use his voice as a matter for musical compositions that build a set to be performed. A gig with "the bereavement" of Rob voice."
Mathius Shadow-Sky, April 2012.

Also (since 2010 even more to now 2012):
I perform a solo electronic live music performance (with one Korg MonoPoly, a 1982 analogue synthesizer) is still on (go at soundcloud.com/myster-shadow-sky to listen the performance or download the album here). In 2012 the artist Fedaden join Shadow-Sky to gig a duet of 2 analogue Japanese synthesizers. The next step started the May 27 2012 is to perform to mix 2 musical instruments with more than 200 years of historical differences: take them out of their respective context and married them together. A solo performance with a jinghu (a Chinese violin from the Pekinese opera) and a mono/poly korg (a Japanese analogue synthesizer from the 80s: just before the DX7 yamaha).
Myster Shadow-Sky perform jinghu and mono/poly in the fog
listen and view to the pilot performance of myster shadow-sky playing in the fog, Music with No Name (youtube)

'May, June, November 2012, I will be making the music of the new Benoît Maestre's film entitled: l'Amour de son Prochain.'
