Data Regina: A multimedia suite by composer Olivia Louvel digs deep into the psychic warfare between two 16th century British Queens. Fascinated by the existence of two Queens ruling in the 16th century at the same time on a single island, within an extremely male-dominated society, composer and artist Olivia Louvel explores the reign of Mary Queen of Scots vs Elizabeth I and delivers her singular digital transposition: Data Regina. Drawn to the life and writings of Mary Queen of Scots, a poet and essayist herself and one of the most read woman of her time, Louvel assembles a digital narrative through 17 compositions, capturing different palettes, tones, playing with identity within the ”duality-duel” the relationship of the two women, two queens and cousins, who were never to meet. As well as the publication of a CD, the interactive digital website provides a further platform to showcase the 3D animations produced by animator Antoine Kendall as well as curated historical references.
