“Score”, the sound of Antivj by Thomas Vaquie.

I am currently working on “Score”, an album that will feature a selection of pieces of music that I composed for architectural mapping and installation projects produced by Antivj. A release date is set for October 2012 and we are still in the process of looking for potential partners / label to help releasing the album on vinyl. Read more →

Cityscape 2095

Cityscape 2095 is the results from a collaboration with the illustrator Marc Ferrario aka Mandril. Though using different techniques of expression, our work is heavily influenced by architecture.

This project began shortly after Imandril contacted me via facebook to tell me he like my work and would love to work with me in the future. After this first contact, I visited his website to see his work that I didn’t know before. Read more →

3Destruct at Scopitone 2011

3Destruct, an audio-visual installation by Yannick Jacquet, Jérémie Peeters and Thomas Vaquié was shown at the Lieu Unique October 12-16th 2011 as part of the Scopitone festival.

The 3Destruct project started in 2007, inspired in part by the wide-open yet claustrophobic space of an underground car park that the Biennale of Contemporary Art of Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium had offered. Since then, the project has been presented in other festivals: Mapping Festival in Geneva (2007); Image Radio, Eindhoven (2007), 100% Montpellier (2008); most recently Yota Space in Saint Petersburg (2010).

Live Painting – Shackleton

After loads of travels and events abroad, I had a chance to get some rest for a couple of weeks, and stay a bit around Bristol..  I also realized that I haven’t played ‘at home’ for a while, so I was really pleased when I’ve been asked to do some visuals for a Dubstep night at the Croft, which is the place where I did my very first VJ set when I moved to UK, back in 2004.

The organisers were more after a “stage design” rather than a simple screen setup, so it was the perfect occasion to get further in the “live painting” experiments that I did in June.

Olivier Ratsi

I meant to introduce you properly to Olivier for a while, but our busy planning has delayed my plans for far too long..

If you are interested in live visuals, you probably heard about Olivier’s work before, as the man is one of the most demanded VJs in Europe, and he performed in many festivals (Festival Optronica, Mapping, Nemo, Exit, Centre George Pompidou, etc) under his VJ name EMovie.  I presented his work a couple of times on this blog, in the Paysages electroniques 07 report, or after Nordik impact, at the time we were tracing the first lines of the Label project.
