Francisco Meirino

Performing since 1994 - under pseudonym Phroq until 2009 - Francisco Meirino lives and works in Lausanne. He explores the tension between programmable material and its inherent potential failure. He focuses on what is not supposed to be recorded - the end of life of a sound system, electrostatic background noises - and how those technical sound failures can become esthetically interesting sounds in themselves.

d’Incise

Laurent Peter was born in l983 in Geneva and began composing in 2002 under the pseudonym of d'incise. He focuses on various forms of electronic music, inspired as much by the pioneers of deterministic music as by experimentations such as drone or electronica. His creations are made of sound disturbances, nervous breaks, melancholic atmospheres and he shows a non-hidden fascination for decay.

Hijokaidan feat. HIKO

If the word ‘noise’ does indeed come from ‘nausea’ (Latin for the sound made by seasick boat passengers), this is its very incarnation. JOJO Hiroshige, the founder and head of the Osaka label and music shop Alchemy is said to have introduced the term ‘noise’ into the Japanese language when he started the band in Kyoto in 1979 -incidentally the same year the Merzbow project was formed in Tokyo.

Kiko C. Esseiva

Kiko C. Esseiva is a self-taught musician living and working in Lausanne since 1987. He starts musique concrete composition in 2000. His non-academic work is partly based on the writing of sound on media and the poetic possibilities that arise from this process. It also includes the abundant and diversified use of acoustic instruments and objects as well as noise, human voice, soundscapes and electronic sounds.

CINE-NOISE

This project offers electro-mechanical sounds and visual performances by several means including mixing loops, infinitely edited and segments of film that have been scratched, painted, color-saturated or even burned live. Multi-projection is carried out by means of vintage 16mm projectors, while sounds are manipulated and distorted as a part of this interdisciplinary experience. CINE-NOISE paradoxically celebrates the end of analog film! This is cinema stretched to its limits.

Zbigniew Karkowski & Daniel Buess

The meeting with Zbigniew Karkowski, one of the most important electronic music composers and performers, big master of the seismic power and the raw sound mass, is promising a dazzling exchange: an extremly loud crash of subsonic frequencies' waves actioned by intense druming.
