Logelloù Y2K19 – International live looping festival à Penvenan

Après avoir joué dans quelques LoopFest Françaises (Paris, Châtellerault) et Américaines (Santa Cruz, Providence, Guadalajara, Mexico), et rencontré un bon nombre de talentueux musiciens live loopers,  il m’a semblé pertinent d’organiser une LoopFest en Bretagne.

Des mots et des murs – Audio walk through the former prison of Guingamp

On the occasion of the renovation of Guingamp prison, which will house Gwinzegal and become an art centre, Céline Larrière, Director of Cultural Affairs for the City of Guingamp, asked Julien Simon, playwright, to write an audio walk that would be the result of research in the prison’s archives.

Logelloop 5 is released

Without going back over the whole history of Logelloop, I can tell you that it started in 2002, with the creation of Michel Aumont‘s show Souffle en boucles.

Tubulus – Sound installation

The sound space is an ark. There is a tube tree, 9 automatic bells, 6 speakers on the floor, 4 suspended speakers driven by motors, one distant speaker, another for bass and several small lights. Let your mind wander in the organic sound, which touches the deepest part of the body, which astonishes or cradles. Choose static listening, nestled in the cushions, or prefer the movement and walk your ears…

My approach to Live Looping

While I am in the USA to play in 2 festivals dedicated to Live Looping : Y2K17 PVD Loopfest and Y2K17 international live looping festival Santa Cruz,  it seems interesting to make a point on my approach to the Live Looping.
