Video mapping tour

For the 2nd year, the Video Mapping Festival returns to Senlis with a video mapping tour in the heart of the “royal city”!, to discover the different forms of video mapping.

Notre-Dame Cathedral (South gate):

► True colors
In an abstract and symbolic approach, this mapping emphasises the synaesthesia between images and music, as a tribute to the different musical masters who have succeeded one another in the history of the cathedral. The creation is also inspired by a key historical event that occurred in the 16th century: the incendiary storm that ravaged the cathedral and led to its reconstruction in the “flamboyant” Gothic style.

Supervision: Patrick GRANDI
Animation: Patrick GRANDI, Clément LEMAIRE
Original music: Aleksi AUBRY-CARLSON
Royal Castle – replay Video Mapping Festival 2021:

► The young king and the stag
Charles VI is a character with a colourful history. King appreciated by his people, he was unfortunately afflicted with terrible psychic disorders. Using the magical properties of the forest, this video mapping invites you to explore the different aspects of the personality of Charles VI in the manner of a tale.

Supervision: Jules HUVIG
Animation: Jules HUVIG, Stéphanie LÉONARD, Lea MINIGGIO, César PAYRAT, Clément VERFAILLIE
Original music: Virgile GUIOST
Saint-Maurice Priory:

► The journey of Saint Maurice
The Priory of Senlis, a vestige still standing of a complex that has now disappeared, was built by the pious king Louis IX, who wanted to bring the story of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune to France and share it with others, in order to preserve its relics. This mapping offers a visual graphic narrative of the myth of Saint-Maurice, from his departure from Egypt in the year 300, to the arrival of the relics in Senlis in 1262.

Supervision: Johann ETRILLARD
Animation: Johann ETRILLARD, Maxime LEVESQUE
Original music: Erick BEJARANO
Park of the Royal Castle (Purple Beech):

► Sorry to bother you again
A tribute to the experience of nature. Wandering lights bring the coppery beech to life. Its body begins to move and hidden marks appear. The beech itself is a being. It takes root deep in the earth and reaches another world.

Direction: Julian HOELSCHER
Animation: Julian HOELSCHER, Hamza MRABET
Original music: Géraldine KWIK
Jardin du Roy (Gallo-Roman rampart):

► Ça barde !
Following a barbarian invasion, two little musicians tell us the history of the place in a minimalist and colourful style.

Direction & animation: Adrien TISON
Original music: Aleksi AUBRY-CARLSON
Jardin de l’Évêché (museum’s facade):

► Apertus Animus
A special focus is given to the collections of the Museum of Art and Archaeology, with a reference to the ex-votos of the Roman temple in the Halatte forest and the works of Séraphine de Senlis and Thomas Couture. An invitation to push open the doors of the museum to discover all its riches!

Direction: Maöke
Animation: Aurélien BINAULD, Lucas DUROT, Alexandre PESCHMANN
Saint-Pierre Church (indoor):

► Indrajala
“Imagine a multidimensional spider web covered in dewdrops in the early morning. And that each drop contains the reflection of all the other drops”. Alain Watts
