STVDIO NOUVEAU is an electronic music and multimedia art duo. Their work represents the intersection between 3D digital sculpture and animation, AI generated imagery, illustration, and video art - all paired with musical compositions.
Their music is functionally "post-classical," utilizing the full palette of modern sounds and styles freely at their disposal, while utilizing old forms and structures to present their vision for 21st century absolute music.
Their work is visually characterized by ambiguous settings and structures, and is underpinned by a self-described "abstract multi-verse narrative."
STVDIO NOUVEAU's first album "Audiovisual" was released summer 2020 via SuperRare as a set of ten onchain audiovisual pieces.
Their second album "In Motion" was released track by track across multiple platforms as onchain audiovisual pieces, which are each accompanied by 3D sculptures as featured in each piece.
They are now releasing their third album track by track on catalog.works
Iconomorphs is STVDIO NOUVEAU's first long form series of AI generated images.
Each Iconomorph is a text prompt AI transformation using a single source image: “Icon Alpha, the Unmorphed.”
The resulting outputs serve as a snapshot, a glimpse into a potential timeline and era, all stemming from the vast abstract multiverse narrative of STVDIO NOUVEAU.
