In 2014, the Organic Orchestra company’s residency continues in the the Atelier Arts Sciences research framework by taking on a new form.
This year’s objective is to enhance the interactive glove which was created for ERZA’s concert, and to adapt it for industrialization.
In collaboration with the IDEAs Lab and ENSCI, the Atelier Arts Sciences enters a new phase of reflections concerning new features and functions of this interactive glove.
Bionic Orchestra 2.0 is a musical, visual and interactive project, blending beatbox and new technologies.
From Monday 20 through Thursday 23 January 2014, Ezra and his team were in residency at the Atelier Arts Sciences in a workshop with students at ENSCI, working on the adaptation of the interactive glove to stage.

The beatboxer Ezra’s new show is the fruition of his residency at Atelier Arts Sciences and tells his own story of the passionate relationship between humans and machines. Ezra, through simple hand gestures, controls the electronic enhancement of his voice, of sound and light travelling in space using an interactive glove designed and tailor-made in collaboration with the Organic Orchestra Co. and the Atelier Arts Sciences. Through an "augmented" beatbox, as both an organic and technological performance, Ezra investigates the question of what we are in this technologically transformed environment.
In his show within the framework of the Arts Sciences Biennale 2013, at the Maison de la Musique on 4 and 5 October, Ezra performs solo on stage, accompanied by his team of developers. His non-verbal performance yields space to play on meanings, to new research on gesture control and motion sensitivity.
The research residency is continued in 2014, investigating the multiple possibilities behind this interactive glove and technological invention, in various sectors, such as health, domotics, gaming, industrial and collaborative digital devices...

Conference on the interactive glove, demonstrated by Ezra, on 19 September 2014
