Perfectly Rounded


In a very short space of time Lumiere et Son has established itself as a family firm with a reputation for quality and service and attention to detail. Here is an example of their most recent workmanship giving an insight into the creative process.

Very nice.

"So why add sound ?", you ask, and your answers are all well and good except of course we all know that the real answer is because 'Lumiere et Son' is far too good a pun to go to waste.

You are right 'Lumiere et Son' is far too good a pun to go to waste - though it took a couple of weeks of adding sound before I realised that the name was such a gift.

superb, again.

what a fine institution " lumiere et son " has become;
art is working, after all, i suppose.

it is a great pleasure to [re]discover what i had seen as a silent, moving image, mutating into something else again.

i would label the "lumiere et son" pieces as "enlightened aphorisms" re-introducing meaning, yet with a definite, absurd existential twist.

i guess you are a pataphysician too.
practicing.

I'd say it's more Duchampian, like Anemic Cinema or Rrose Selavy, etc

Philip Sanderson said...

Ah yes seeing as silent hearing as visual

SAM RENSEIW said...

well, yes, it is duchampian, but then again: it was jarry that set duchamp off.

"I am interested in ideas, not merely in visual products. "
or in french:
"L'aspirant habite Javel et moi j'avais l'habite en spirale."

Indeed there is a nice article on the Jarry/Duchamp connection here:
