Hypnorama is an immersive environment that invites the spectator to immerse themselves in a hypnagogic state, that fleeting moment between waking and sleep, during a 15-minute session. Plunged into darkness in an enclosed space, sound textures and luminous intensities fall into dialogue with oneanother. This sound piece, composed and performed by Violaine Lochu, plays with oscillations, breaths, echoes and superimpositions of voices and dialogue with the aid of a special light-device developed by Baptiste Joxe. Meanwhile the spectator, entering an environment created by Guillaume<Constantin, can curl up and let themselves be drawn into the confusion of a waking dream.
