Chansons de Toile (Woven Songs) is a participative multimedia piece created and performed by the La Pulpe collective. It fuses vocal, gaming, and role play techniques with the aim of giving rise to a transmedia choir.

From night-time sessions to digital worlds, Woven Songs will take the audience on a (en)chanted journey in the dead of night. The collective explore the form of a choir whose voices, texts and performance mediums are spread across several platforms, from physical reality to dreams within the virtual worlds. They aim to offer an immersive storytelling experience – where live singing voices, electronic music, and headphone listening interweave and blend – which would be broadcast simultaneously in a 3D online universe.

Collectif La Pulpe

La Pulpe is a research and audio creation sisterhood run by Aurélia Nardini, Crys Aslanian, Ludmila Postel and Lola Dubus. It focuses on a modular approach to collective work by blending improvisation and musical composition with entertainment systems such as actual play and virtual worlds. By creating workspaces through research, media and performance, La Pulpe transpose approaches to listening similar to those in Pauline Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations, at the heart of the technical and sensitive space Roy Ascott names the Telematic Embrace.
