Franck Vigroux’s Masterclass will focus on his work on the hybridization of disciplines, particularly on a dialogue between music, light, images and bodies in motion. Vigroux will offer his relationship with the stage as a subject for analysis, with the help of excerpts from his performances. This will be an exchange of opinions on his approach to sound design in connection with other disciplines: dance, theatrical performances, video works. The concept of settings, interactivity and acoustic space will also be addressed, along with the issue of musical dramaturgy.
FRANCK VIGROUX is one of the few artists who is both a musician and a director. As a composer-performer he has the rare capacity to produce a very wide range of sounds from electroacoustic to industrial noise, modern composition and experimental electronic music. He has performed and recorded with internationally renowed musicians such as Mika Vainio (Pan Sonic), Reinhold Friedl, Elliott Sharp, Joey Baron, Zeena Parkins, Ars nova ensemble instrumental. The uniqueness also comes from Vigroux’s artistic approach that integrates new media and performing arts. Since 2009 he designs trans-disciplinary shows and collaborates with Compagnie D’autres Cordes, a production company dedicated to digital arts audiovisual and live performances. His work has been shown worldwide in major international festivals.
