Scènes Ouvertes | Rideau
On Monday, February 13, 2017, the Société des Arts Technologiques was proud to present a networked performance by artist Evelyne Drouin (alias Dj Mini) between the SAT and the convention center Rideau in Quebec City, a first for the use of our Scenic stations in the project Scènes Ouvertes!
Launched by the SAT, the Scenes Ouvertes project aims to network 20 concert halls throughout Quebec from spring 2017. This network of trendy venues will enable live events to take place, bringing life to multiple location simultaneously. These multidirectional performances will also open the way to a new scenic and scenographic language.
Broadcast from the SAT TRANSFORM space, broadcasted live in Québec in real time on 3 different broadcast medias.
The result of the SAT research, the broadcast is made possible thanks to Scenic software, developed by the team of the Metalab (research center of the SAT), powerful, open and simple software allowing the transmission of uncompressed audio stream, HD video and data.
On Monday, February 13, 2017, broadcasters and cultural partners were able to admire the stations, attending the two-way demonstration offered by Dj Mini and her collaborators from the SAT in Montreal for the convention center in Quebec City. The event took place as part of the Rideau Exchange’s digital and performing arts forum held in the Québec City capital.
With this first long-awaited performance, the people present were able to ask their questions and take more advantage of the possibilities offered by this new equipment and to glimpse the potential of future network programming.
Scènes ouvertes was initiated by the Société des arts technologiques and is part of the Québec Digital Culture Plan of the Ministry of Culture and Communications.
