Composed for one trombonist, video and electronics, Outer space is questioning space: an augmented space with the development of new technologies, in which the modern individual escapes risking to get lost. This vertigo is here expressed by the video: in the back of the stage, it opens a window on a virtual space, enclosed with four black walls, inhabited by three screens which show encrypted images.
The trombonist’s movements being coordinated with the camera motion in the video, the audience discovers this cold, tight and uninhabitable space filled and congested with smog, blinding lights and, soon, avatars of the musician until it reaches the final saturation point. The trombone, as a music instrument and camera, reveals its third identity: demiurgic hole, swallowing one by one clones of the musician during a burlesque scene. In the video, nothing remains except, frozen on the screens, a frontal view of the trombone’s bell, threatening, pointing the audience.
