“Tempérée” is a short video aiming to represent city dominance over nature. It is composed of digital audio processing applied to acoustic sounds and of synthesis images obtained by the modification of videos recorded during the summer of 2018 in Oka, Québec. As in life, the elements that compose this video are in perpetual slow evolution. The result of this constant movement is a series of sequences in which there is no principal focal point but instead offers a wide variety of elements on which the listener can choose to focus his attention on.
