Artists from Métalu A Chahuter (a multidisciplinary artists' collective from Lille) wanted to highlight and share the know-how they have acquired in digital creation, by giving birth to the metalu.net project. An open source digital site and cooperative creation platform, metalu.net now brings together people from various backgrounds (artists, scientists, researchers, computer scientists, developers, etc.) who create technologies and interactive devices. This resource platform designs innovative digital tools (hardware and software) for artistic creation, while allowing their extension to other fields of application, in an ethic of sharing and free access to information.  

The metalu.net project is a future third place and aims to create a network of cultural third places and open source initiatives in the Lille metropolitan area. For Esch2022, metalu.net wishes to give a European dimension to this project through two main axes:  

NETWORK  

- Weaving a Franco-Luxembourg network highlighting initiatives related to digital creation, open source and free software in the Esch2022 territory.  

- Promote the exchange of practices, artistic collaborations around open-source digital creation and the training of professionals. 

DOMOZIC WORKSHOPS  

- To lead playful 'Domozique' workshops and to create a park of Domophones: new musical instruments created from everyday objects and metalu.net technology.  

- To carry out provoking and musical practice interventions with the help of the created domophones.

Métalu A Chahuter is a collective of artists, actors, visual artists and musicians. They create playful and poetic theatrical and musical forms, often participative and in situ. As creators of worlds, their know-how is closely linked to materials, construction techniques, mechanical or sometimes optical processes. Experimentation is at the heart of the collective's artistic identity: exploring sound and image as a poetic language, making the object a conduit for the imaginary, assuming multidisciplinarity as a driving force for collective creation.
With metalu.net, Métalu A Chahuter is part of a new dynamic by highlighting the digital practices developed by some of its artists. An open-source digital site and a cooperative creation platform, metalu.net brings together people from various backgrounds (artists, scientists, researchers, computer scientists, developers, etc.) who create technologies and interactive devices. This resource platform designs innovative digital tools (hardware and software) for artistic creation, while allowing their extension to other fields of application, in an ethic of sharing and free access to information.
