Ecume, a double album by Thomas Vaquie for Antivj Recordings

The event, organized by Elektra festival, aims to reveal the effervescence of the digital art in Quebec and the maturity of the discipline internationally. Other artists  such as Carsten Nicolai, Herman Kolgen, Ryoji Ikeda, Robert Lepage, also presented their personal work which was mostly installations.
