The exploitation of elementary rhythm of matter means human manipulation of time. It can generate love and an atomic bomb and. Our human creation field is vast. What we extract in the Elementary Rhythm of Matter's exploitation from the center of the bomb is the fundamental vibration of life: MUSIC.  _

Created in Paris in 1980, registered in 1987, Le Centre De La Bombe, was created to support musical Unexpected Playing Audacities or Unheard Cruel Temerities. First located in France then in Poland and United States, Brazil and Canada :

Paris [France] and Warsaw [Poland] 1980-1991, re-Paris in 2001.
Registered in Paris in 1987 as a non profit organization, Le Centre De La Bombe was created in 1980, when the first art-sonic production started: the lamp's music.

Forgues [Southwest of France] 1992-1997.
After Paris, Le Centre De La Bombe was located from 1992 to 1997 between the Basque Country (Atlantic Ocean) and Corsica (Mediterranean sea) in southwest of France.

Miami and Appalachian Mountains [United States] 1997-1999.
In 1997 Le Centre De La Bombe crossed the Atlantic Ocean to land in the USA where this web site was first produced.

Montreal [Canada] 1999-2000.
In 2000, Le Centre De La Bombe opened officially in Montreal (as an OSBL: Organisation Sans But Lucratif) Canada to produce ArtSonic Inflatable Building in collaboration with the Society to Promote Gigantic Art. And in association with CSOR (Circle Square Oval Rectangle), to extend its records distribution and events production in Canada. The first centrebombe Canadian project started with the Trans-Cultural Syn-phônê Orchestra of Montreal then TCSO Quebec in coproduction with the Society of Technologic Art and CSOR.

I Ketut Suwentra, the creator of a giant bamboo orchestra, asked for a collaboration with Mathius Shadow Sky to perform in Paris.

 

Le centre de la bombe is myster shadow-sky's music, art & architecture non profit organization. With other artists they organize and produce music creation, installation and show. The focus of the organization is to stay independent from other music currents, like the commercial or elitist one and create free Unexpected Art for Everybody. Le centre de la bombe web site shows works done and in project, plus special "webart" pages. It is the place too to listen and download music and albums artwork for free. By extension le centre de la bombe try to be a records label. Le centre de la bombe is an open place for creation that you share with other artists: a place to work with recording equipment, computers, PA, a place to talk freely, a place to take good time.

Unfortunately last few years, le centre de la bombe lost his creation place, and some of its equipment was stolen, like professional equipment for live recording, multitrack recorder, etc. Today, le centre de la bombe try to release the music produced, on CD like for example the collective project "XX century contemporary composers remixed" among other thirty albums waiting in queue. Most today's collaboration are done through internet, because most of the artists got the equipment he/she needs to work: they don't need any organization for that. Le centre de la bombe exists today to keep an healthy spirit (with provocation) or a style of creation among brains eaters by joining together artists on collective projects and to produce myster shadow-sky's creations.

Today in 2002, le centre de la bombe is located in Paris (France).
Today in 2004, le centre de la bombe is located in Toulouse (France).

IDEO

LE CENTRE DE LA BOMBE,
la critique de ma raison.

Le centre de la bombe pratique des musiques susceptibles d'accélérer le processus de décomposition de la musique-marchandise et de la musique-élitiste : établi comme des principes culturels.

Le centre de la bombe où l'intuition prévaut sur le mensonge artistique, commercial et politique encourage les esprits libre et éveillés contre l'esthétique élitiste internationale, les fausses réussites publicitaires, les mystifications du conditionnement culturel, la canalisation planétaire de l'imaginaire collectif, l'inflation des musiques standardisées et le confort de la norme des enculturés.

Au centre de la bombe nous essayons de recréer la musique détruite par l'industrie du disque et les élites internationales de la culture qui sont tous deux, le moteur de la normalisation planétaire de l'art et de la musique.

Le centre de la bombe est un lieu nomade d'exploration et de création musicale, ouvert et très attaché à son public.

Re-éduquer. Le public perdu dans la consommation solitaire et surabondante de musiques enregistrées publicitaires qui s'immerge dans l'imaginaire canalisé comme le spectateur d'une autre réalité, où il trouverait son sens mais sans lui-même.

Musiciens, résistons avec souplesse : "[...] dès qu'on fait un pas hors de ce qui a été déjà pensé, dès qu'on s'aventure en dehors du reconnaissable et du rassurant, dès qu'il faut inventer de nouveaux concepts pour des terres inconnus, les méthodes et les morales tombent, et penser devient, suivant une formule de Foucault, un "acte périlleux", une violence qu'on exerce d'abord sur soi-même. Les objections qu'on vous fait ou même les questions qu'on vous pose viennent toujours du rivage, et ce sont comme des bouées qu'on vous lance, mais pour vous assommer et vous empêcher d'avancer plutôt que pour vous aider : les objections viennent toujours des médiocres[...]"
Gilles Deleuze.Pourparlers.1990

Car nous savons que : "la créativité réelle est du côté des étrangers et la culture du côté de ceux qui habitent en marge de la culture sans vivre avec elle... les métèques" Olivier Revault d'Allones.

Nous ressentons le Beau quand notre incertitude sur l'état du monde se réduit : un sentiment de plénitude... tout comme théoriser nous console de l'irrationalité de la nature : on a compris à quoi sert le centre de la bombe ! Re-ouvrir l'imaginaire.

THE CENTRE OF THE BOMB,
the criticism of my reason.

Le Centre De La Bombe trains all sensitive operations to accelerate the process of decomposing merchandise-music and elitist-music: established as cultural principles.

The centre of the bomb, where the intuition prevails over the artistic, commercial and political lying, encourages the free and awakens minds against: the elitist international aesthetic, the amplification of false advertising success, the mystification and the cultural conditioning, the world channeling of collective imaginary, the increase of standardized music and the safety and comfort of norm for uncultured and over cultured people.

At the centre of the bomb, we try to recreate music destroyed by records industry and international elite culture which are both, the world standardization engine of art and music.

The centre of the bomb is a musical exploration and creation nomadic place, open and extremely attached to its audience.

Re-educate. The audience lost by lonely over consumption of commercial recorded music who submerge our self in channelized imaginary like the witness of another reality, where one would find its sense of life but without himself.

Musicians, resist with flexibility: "[...] as soon as one makes a step outside what it was thought, as soon as one ventures outside of recognition and of reassuring, as soon as one has to invent new concepts for unknown lands, the methods and the morals fall apart, and to think becomes according to the expression of Foucault, a "perilous act," a violence that one exercises first on oneself. The objections that one makes you or even the questions that one asks you come always from the shore, and they are like lifesaver that one throw at you, but to knock you out and to prevent you to advance rather than to help you: the objections come always from mediocre persons [...]"
Gilles Deleuze.Pourparlers.1990

Because we know that: "real creativity is on strangers' side and culture on side of those who live on the fringes of culture without living with culture... wops" Olivier Revault d'Allones.

We feel beauty when our uncertainty on world state reduce: wow, it's beautiful, a fullness feeling... like to theorize comfort our self on irrationality of nature: we understood why we need the centre of the bomb! Re-open the doors of imaginary.
