Profile of the performer Ælab:
Stéphane Claude is an electronic_acoustic composer and sound engineer.
His research integrates conceptual and physiological frameworks of audio recording for sound installations and performances. His interests are in the communication of physical and formal aesthetics as transductive experiences, through the exploration of digital signal processing, parameters of acoustics and sound in spaces.
His work has been published by ATAK(JP), LINE (US), ORAL (CA) and Dragon’s Eye Recordings (US).
In the summer of 1996, Ælab was initiated as an art research unit between Stéphane Claude and Gisèle Trudel, with the regular participation of other collaborators.
Ælab cristallizes their interest for an ecological awareness in the use of technology, as echoed in the arts, sciences, philosophies and shamanic traditions. Their work is shown internationally.
