Jérôme Noetinger & Lionel Palun

"Two superimposed projections, one created by the sound, the other driven by video feedback from the first. The sound generates the picture, the picture generates the sound. The TV set acts as an amplifier, the camera becomes a microphone, the synthesizer is the source of lights and the mixer scrambles everything. It is a shared electrical signal that is the raw material of the duo."

Lionel Palun
Electro-video maker
Born in 1972 in Marseille.

Lionel pursued a university education as a physician, qualifying as an engineer at the ENSPG (physics) and obtaining a phd from the UJF (in nano electronics). He worked for 2 years as a teacher and researcher in Grenoble at the LPSC (electronics). Following an encounter with contemporary dance, in particular with the work of the Pascoli company, he branched out into a singular research on the relationship between images and the stage, aiming to make this media an actor in its own right in the performing arts, on a par with dance, texts, sound and lighting.
Lionel Palun is a co-founder of the Association 720 Digital, a member of Collégiale du 102, a member of the editorial committee of the quarterly magazine Revue & Corrigéeand was on the board of directors of CitéDanse for 5 years.

A professional videographer since 2001, he works with digital images in many diverse aspects:

Duo and Improvisation: The core of his present research is a series of duos (generally improvised) that explore possible relationships between images and the other performing arts (Image/Dance, Image/Theatre, Image/Music, Image/Lighting, Video/Film…). The lightness of the duo makes it possible to combine the demands of a refined research with regular encounters with the public. These studies have enabled him to work with artists as diverse as Jérôme Noetinger, Will Guthrie, Riojim, Christophe Cardoen, Delphine Dolce and Dominique Lentin. That is where the alchemy that sustains his work developed.
Art installations: Lionel Palun is regularly invited to present video and sound installations: Condition Publique in Roubaix, Nuit Blanche in Metz, Collectif Brouhaha…
Video performance: Video performance is a tool for research and creative residencies in situ. It can either be a motor for starting the writing process or proposed as a singular form.
Video creations: for dance and theatre pieces or concerts in collaboration with film directors, choreographers, musicians and collectives (Camel Zekri, Yann Lheureux, Frédéric Tentelier, Broadway, Pascal Mengelle, Cédric Marchal, Anne-Marie Pascoli,…) These video creations (written scores or improvisations) are an opportunity for artists to compare the written compositions of other artists.
Sound creation: By physically diverting a video signal, he develops original digital tools in order to project the video signal into the speakers …
Workshops and educational presentations: He regularly leads workshops for different audiences: Fine arts students, primary schools (Lumix project with Association Muzzix) and community centres. He also ran a course of mise en scene and an introduction to light images for Kaléidoscope, a project for the Opera de Lyon.
Software design: Besides mastering the professional tools of digital imagery and multimedia, his university education and work led him to developing his own software programme, In Videre for creating and diffusing images. This programme is both a tool for video production and an original instrument for improvisation and video performances.
