The Fool's Ballad almost OUT !!By Zahra Poonawala, on 2016-10-26 17:01

Lots of news to be given today for the Fool’s Ballad! The ceramic sculpture is built and ready to be fixed onto the installation! The team «Metalu.net» is working on the computer programming of the robotics and interactive tracking in the North of France. In 15 days the installation will be transported to Strasbourg, for the exhibit «Résonances Electriques» that will be taking place in «Le Shadok». The piece will be visible from the 16th to the 22nd of November and I will be making a conference with the composer Gaëtan Gromer on the 17th of November during the exhibit. You are all warmly welcome!

The music aspect of the installation has also advanced a lot. The composer Gaëtan Gromer wrote the music notes for the soprano singer Juliette de Massy and the recording took place beginning October 2016 in Strasbourg with Benjamin Moreau in the KAWATI studio. Some pictures here!

First days of TUTTI set-up in Strasbourg, L'AubetteBy Zahra Poonawala, on 2015-12-01 19:59

Yesterday morning the truck arrived Place Kleber early in the morning, to offload the 700kg of TUTTI from my studio behind the train station to L’Aubette 1928. We had to be plenty to offload quickly, as there are circulation restrictions during the day related to the security measures during the Christmas Market in Strasbourg. Indeed this afternoon, picking up the last batch of equipment (computer and sound card) was particularly special. I had to offload from the car 1km away from Place Kleber, pass the police barriers, open all my boxes, have them checked and continue by foot as no cars are authorised during the day.

But now all is good, and setting up is well on it’s way! Kinect camera is fixed on the 5m high structure and adapted for TUTTI, so it overlooks the entire hall. All the speakers are placed and music is starting to come out! Tomorrow I’ll put the motors on so they will be able to move as well. Step by Step!

I am looking forward to this week of set-up, Opening is in 4 days! ; ) I am very excited and cannot wait to see you! Thank you for your encouragements and do not hesitate to talk to your friends and family about TUTTI exhibit in Strasbourg, and to share THE FOOL’S BALLAD crowdfunding project! ; ) Thanks a million!

Cher Tous!

Me voici comblée par un soutien à 41% aujourd’hui. Je me souviens d’une statistique de crowdfunding que j’avais trouvée et que j’avais envoyée à une amie. Elle disait qu’il y a 96% de chance de réussite lorsqu’on arrive à 41% de notre objectif.
