Born from the unusual union of videographer Mathieu Jacques and the sound experimenter Christophe Lamarche-Ledoux, Organ Mood relies on the concepts of improvisation, immersion and mysticism, as conceived and previously exploited by artists such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and Delia Gonzales & Gavin Russom.
During the rituals, which emphasize more on the performance than on the rock show itself, the duo immerses the public into a singular audio-visual universe, introducing them to a unique experience. Influenced by electric instruments and gathered and connected electronics, sound and projections take form and deform. Abstract, geometric and organic, the patterns created and projected support and inspire the melodic and hypnotic, repetitive compositions. Beatbox, synthesizer and sequencer support the electronic organ with which the musician improvises his pieces, without having to use pre-programmed sequences; the sound of the organ echoes off of the artist's retro projectors as he strums, draws, creating on the spot luminous compositions of superposed coloured acetates and silk screened images, evoking Norman McLaren as much as Paper Rad. The public, much more than a simple spectator, makes its way into the centre of the creation. Combined and modelled based on the their vision, impulses and urges, music and images spellbind and submerse the spectator into a contemplative, introspective and optimistic state.
