Premiered on 26th of November 2020, as a part of Sonic Bites, La salle des fêtes transports us to the ethereal realms of the Musée d’Orsay’s salle des fête. This piece weaves together classical orchestration, AI elements, and the surreal lyricism of Giorgio de Chirico’s novel Hebdomeros. Through a fusion of sound and imagery, viewers embark on a transcendent exploration of travel, movement, and the enduring power of preservation. Crafted during a time of personal introspection, La salle des fêtes represents the artist’s journey through grief and longing. Orleans employs a quasi-archival approach, merging sketches, photographs, and film to create a kaleidoscopic tapestry that invites viewers to lose themselves in its depths.

At its core, La salle des fêtes is a testament to the transformative power of art. It speaks to the human experience where dreams, memories, and fairy tales converge in a symphony of sight and sound.
