ENVOL BY SAMUEL YAL

ENVOL is an animated collaborative project that was conceived and edited during the lockdown in France using nearly 1000 images of a bird's flight, which were shot by Muybridge in 1883. The musical composition was performed on the harpsichord - an instrument that, in older times, used birds' beaks for plucking the strings. This musical texture, which owes to the beak and to the air the transmission of its celestial poetics, thus responds to the chaotic hum of the bird images in the film.

Samuel Yal is a sculptor and animator whose animated film NŒVUS, made entirely with porcelain, was post-produced at Atelier 105 in 2016.
