Olivier Pasquet

Olivier Pasquet is a composer, music producer and visual artist. His work is based on the writing of audio visual compositions and synesthesia. His generative pieces, both minimalistic and maximalistic, are contextualized within a rationalist theory-fiction universe. This world can be explored both by singular pieces and an overall artistic path. The formal and plastic value gives it strong links with architecture, geometry and algorithmic design. His compositions are then sound-based, visual and material. Olivier Pasquet teaches interactive arts and computational design at l’Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs from 2006 and 2009, theater-music at Théâtre National de Strasbourg between 2007 and 2008 etc. He received several prices and residencies such as Villa Médicis hors-les-murs, two residencies at Tokyo Wonder Site, Arcadi, residencies both in Chili and Taiwan. Since 2009, he is invited researcher at Tokyo University with Philippe Codognet, Keio and Buffalo with David Felder. He also works at Sony CSL and is consultant at Ableton.


Gilbert Nouno

Composer, sound artist, perfomer and researcher at IRCAM. Gilbert Nouno lives and works in Paris. As an interdisciplinary artist under the name Til Berg, he explores the synaesthesic and emergent relationships between peculiar art fields. His concepts of work and production take advantage of generative language, data mining processes and algorithms. He draws abstract minimalist shapes and motions from music and sounds with traditional and digital medium like lithography and video. His work was shown in Paris at the research center for creation IRCAM, in Rome and in Florence at the foundation for contemporary arts Fabbrica Europa 2012.

He has performed with artists from different styles and fields of expression such as Pierre Boulez and the Berliner Philharmoniker, Michael Barenboim at the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall in London, George Benjamin and the London Sinfonietta at the Southbank Centre, Jonathan Harvey and the Arditti String Quartet, jazz saxophonist Steve Coleman, flutist Malik Mezzadri, underground turntablist DJ Oil and choreographer Susan Buirge.
