NSDOS — Saturday



NSDOS, aka Kirikoo Des, is a French pluridisciplinary artist born in 1984 in Paris. After dance studies at the International Dance academy in Paris, he sought to create sounds on which to pose his movements. He then had to imagine a new sound order, an alternative approach to music - by abstraction. Sometimes called the "hacker of techno" by the French press, he distorts the technological tools, creating the link between machines and matter. He collects living data, using his own motion capture sensors on his dancing body, interactive devices or creative coding programs, and injects them into the rectilinear skeleton of techno to make an organic matrix. He invites the public to push back with him the limits of the body, objects and sounds.

In a constant research of new medium to develop his art, he had the chance to show his performances, to give workshop and masterclass around the globe in contemporary art museum or digital art events such as Mutek Mexico & Tokyo, the BIAN of Montreal, the Gwangju Biennale in South Korea, the Triennale of Milano or the MAM of Rio de Janeiro. He also had some creative time to make different project during residencies in Roma at Villa Medicis, in collaboration with the BNF (the national library of France), in Algiers at Les ateliers sauvages, in Paris at Palais de Tokyo or at Novas Frequencias Festival in Brazil to build an international participative performance in Rio de Janeiro. Recently he received a grant for his work on motion capture sensors from IMPACT, the International Meeting in Performing Arts and Creative Technologies (Belgium).
