Lost Poetics of the CPO
12 March 2016, 12:00 - 17:00
CPOs (Code Practice Oscillator) have long been used to learn Morse code.
The electronic workshop Lost poetics of the CPO consists in making a portable wireless instrument inspired by these tools to practice this endangered language, thus re-actualizing a past mode of communication and revealing its potential for electronic and artistic creation.
Ideas to be discussed include the notions of becoming transmitter and receiver, the poetic aspect of lost or untranslatable messages, and long-distance communication as a theme for sound improvisation.
Émilie Mouchous is a sound artist who creates her own electronic instruments. Her audio and spatial investigations are characterized by the creation of autonomous mini-systems and manifest themselves in various ways: radio pieces, series of electronic objects, collaborative free improvisation, internet art. She studies plants, the migration of dragonflies, and electricity.
