Shapes @ Urvakan Fest

SHAPE Platform announces guest showcase at the 2020 edition of Urvakan Festival in Yerevan, Armenia.

The “Creative Europe”-supported SHAPE platform announces a large showcase at Urvakan festival in Yerevan, Armenia, May 5 – 9. This will be the fifth large SHAPE showcase outside of the EU after Montréal’s MUTEK, Rio De Janeiro’s Novas Frequências, Jinja, Uganda’s Nyege Nyege and St. Petersburg’s GAMMA. Counting 15 SHAPE artists in Urvakan’s line-up, this will also be the largest SHAPE guest showcase so far.

The inspiration behind the name “Urvakan” (which means ‘ghost’ in Armenian) comes from the festival team’s interest in revitalizing the country’s abandoned and deserted sites and their ambiguous state of being neither completely ruined, nor truly alive as they were decades ago. In a bold attempt to bring them back to life, some of these locations will be turned into one-of-a-kind centers of cultural attraction by serving as venues for the festival’s kaleidoscopic music program. Backed by public discussions, site- specific art installations and exhibitions, food vendors, and many more, these sites will hopefully inspire festival visitors with their uncanny beauty and encourage the public to discover their hidden potential, yet to be realized. Urvakan’s music program blends together ongoing projects of more than 80 artists from 22 countries, highlighting current trends in sonic arts, contemporary electronic, instrumental, avant pop, and club music.The festival also aims to spark exchanges between local musicians and established artists, curators, and independent music industry professionals from around the world.

Each year, the 16 associations, involved in SHAPE, collectively choose 48 creatively strong artists and musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops and talks across festivals and special events.

The line-up up of the SHAPE x Urvakan 2020 line-up is as follows:

- Animistic Beliefs: Animistic Beliefs were born to perform, they live to play live and they thrive on a stage. Hailing from Rotterdam, they flourish in any dark, strobe lit basement during the supernatural witching hours. It is in these settings that they breathe new life into electro by twisting, warping and contorting it into contemporary and spellbinding, occult structures. They tinker with fluid melodies and rehash them into new entities, experimenting with textures whilst effortlessly deviating from meditative to manic, destructive to danceable in an instant.

- Dorota: What turns a one chord song into a spiritual practice? What connects improvisation with gang vocals, sufi rave music to tape loops? A music, far beyond form and emptiness. Dorota was founded in 2009 by three Hungarian musicians, Aron Porteleki, Daniel Makkai and David Somló. With the success of their first untitled adventurous art-rock album, and their second triple(!) album Frik the band has become a major player in the experimental music scene of Budapest, and is celebrated as one of the most unique contemporary bands in Hungary.

- Elvin Brandhi: An improvising lyricist, producer and sound artist from Bridgend, Wales, who builds aberrant beats from field recordings, tape, vinyl, instrument and voice. Using sound and voice as an expansive language transgressing intrinsic systemics and inherited syntactical etiquettes, her live shows are unyielding bursts of erupting animation where her caustic stream of consciousness cavorts with restless, glitched out heaviness.

- Farida Amadou & Steve Noble: Farida Amadou is a self taught bass player based in Liège, Belgium. The electric bass is her main instrument since 2011.  Steve Noble is London’s leading drummer, a fearless and constantly inventive improviser whose super-precise, ultra-propulsive and hyper-detailed playing has galvanized encounters with Derek Bailey, Matthew Shipp, Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith, Stephen O’Malley and many more. They have been performing as a duo and as part of several trios since 2018.

- Hugo Esquinca: Hugo Esquinca’s research-as-intervention/intervention-as-research in sound focuses on exploring different degrees of exposure to erratic processing techniques, indeterminate occurrences, spectral de-gradation, abrupt irritation, the potential of involuntary modifications, opaque functioning and excessive levels of amplification.

- Jay Glass Dubs: Dimitris Papadatos aka Jay Glass Dubs was born in the USA in 1981 and subsequently moved to Greece where he grew up. Though his work as a composer, musician and sound artist he has become one of the leaders in experimental dub electronics and a core member of the Bokeh Versions squad.

- kӣr: kӣr is the solo production epithet of Bane Jovančević, resident live artist and program manager of Belgrade’s club Drugstore. His first release Imrali was on Creme Organization and second one Mramorje was released on Yerevan Tapes. By combining traditional and experimental influences in electro-acoustic music, Kӣr creates the sound in which drone-navigated post-industrial logos transgresses into a tribal mythos, in search for the traces of future.

- LYZZA: At just 19 years old, born-and-raised Brazilian LYZZA is taking over the experimental club scene. She’s a DJ – Producer – Vocalist and curator with ties to ​Fade to Mind (US)​ and ​Bala Club (UK)​. She’s become a familiar face during radical and underground club nights as a DJ and has been seen on line-ups alongside names like ​Fatima Al Qadiri​, ​Evian Christ​,​Le1f​, ​Yves Tumor​ and ​SOPHIE.​ Since recently also Mykki Blanco’s tour DJ.

- Marta De Pascalis: Marta De Pascalis is an Italian musician and sound designer living in Berlin. Her solo works employ analog synthesis and tape loops, incorporating free playing into steady, repetitive patterns. She has produced two albums of minimal synth excursions: the self-released Quitratue (2014) and Anzar (The Tapeworm, 2016). Her new piece Her Core was published on spring 2018 by The Wormhole.

- Poly Chain: Poly Chain is a project of Sasha Zakrevska – a composer, curator, DJ, designer and radio host from Kyiv, Ukraine. Sasha started her musical journey at the age of 4, taking piano classes. After school she continued in a psychedelic rock/shoegaze band named ‘Summer God Teachings’, where she began to explore the world of synthesizers. She’s also composed tracks for theater and museum performances, working with local and international dance crews.

- Rian Treanor: Rian Treanor re-imagines the intersection of club culture, experimental art and computer music, presenting an insightful and compelling musical world of fractured and interlocking components. Having left a vivid impression in 2015 with his debut 12″ ‘A Rational Tangle’ and 2nd EP ‘Pattern Damage’ on The Death of Rave. Warp sub-label Arcola relaunched with his single ‘Contraposition’ in 2018. His debut album ATAXIA was released on Planet Mu.

- Rojin Sharafi: Rojin Sharafi is a sound artist and composer of acoustic, electro-acoustic, and electronic music. Her music crosses borders of different genres and keenly grabs from many musical buckets such as noise, folk, ambient, metal, and contemporary music. Her recent album Urns Waiting To Be Fed debuted in September via Zabte Sote / Opal Tapes labels and reviewed by The Quietus as “the unexpected” and “one of the most ecstatic and fiercely original hours of music”.

- Virgen Maria: Virgen María is the musical project of producer, DJ and performer María Forqué, from Madrid. María’s new musical project leaves behind her previous experimental / performance-based project ‘Beta_3’ in search of creating future EDM. Her EP G.O.D. makes a clear statement about the path electronic music will take in the next couple of years, mixing latin-rhythms, experimental production and dance structures, created to fall in a meditative trance where the audience and the artist make a direct connection of sexuality and inner exploration while still set in the most mainstream musical form.

- xin: xin is a Berlin-based artist, writer and musician. Their debut LP, MELTS INTO LOVE, was released by Subtext in 2019. The record is released solely via independent platforms, with all proceeds going to Eden Reforestation Projects. Previously, they released their first solo EP, To Shock the Earth and Shake the Sky, and they also contributed to compilations on Genome 6.66mbp, Intruder Alert and AN BA.

- Yann Gourdon: Yann Gourdon is a French hurdy-gurdy player, composer and sound artist. One third of the drone trio France and part of the La Nòvia collective, his practice focuses on acoustic phenomena and dynamic relationships with the environment. Having learned to play traditional music from Auvergne by listening to field recordings, Yann recontextualizes tradition via minimalism, honing in on a place or location’s unique vibratory fields, volumes and surfaces.

Les Siestes Coimbra

From August 30 to September 1, Les Siestes will organized in partnership with the Bissaya Barreto foundation its second edition in Portugal at Coimbra.

A series of high quality concerts amazed festival visitors, leaving imperishable memories. In 2019, the festival will take place from August 30th to September 1st for three days of musical discoveries. Free admission for all.

Les Siestes Nogent

After 7 editions in Paris (from 2011 to 2017, in partnership with the quai Branly museum) whose success was quite incredible, Les Siestes wanted a new challenge. We are therefore very happy to invest the park of the Fondation des Artistes, in Nogent-sur-Marne, for two days of free concerts.


Let’s make it clear: less is more. Assuming that our attention time is a quality that have to be cherished, we have decided to invite only 3 groups of musicians for this edition. Each will play twice, on Saturday and Sunday, by offering different concerts or by inviting other musicians to join them.

The US Halcyon Veil label will be represented by Rabit, Swan Meat et Cecilia

The French Collectif Sin will invite François Atlas, Ding Dong (Cosmic Néman & Quéméré), SPMDJ (Syndrome Prémenstruel), Fly Bien et TGV (Tristan Gaston Vallet), Lover Club & Erwan Evin De La Sin and Quentin Kôôl.

The Bristol Young Echo crew will be represented Ishan Sound, Manonmars, Sunun, Ossia et Jabu

THE VENUE : A historic and incredibly beautiful park, rarely open to the public

Les Siestes is the perfect opportunity to discover one of the oldest protected parks in Paris (1909). This wild 24ac park, quite unique, belonged to two English sister who gave it to the French State if artists can live here. One of their house has thus been transformed into a completely unique retirement home for artists and a dozen of artist residencies has been build in the park. There is so much to say about this venue. Actually it’s because of this venue, this park, that we’re organizing this new event.

Blockchain My Art

Blockchain My Art is a powerful ethic tool develop by festivals for festivals. A fair & transparent payment service, a communication tool and a cash register solution in one unique app.

We are particularly interested in demonstrating that each spectator is more than a consumer but a full-fledged actor of the festival. It is, for us, a way to involve the festival-goers by giving them great visibility on our financial flows.

What is Blockchain?
It is an information exchange technology, a protocol that allows data to circulate reliably without going through a third party. In the financial world, it was made famous thanks to the Bitcoin.

Why is it useful for Les Siestes?
The qualities of Blockchain have nothing to do with financial speculation, that technology is secure, decentralised and transparent. These last qualities are interesting, both ideologically and technically speaking.

How does it work?
The audience downloads the application "Blockchain My Art". At each purchase, the transaction passes through distribution keys. While consulting the app, everyone will be able to see how their money is used: Artists’ fees, equipment rental, team pay, copyright... everything will be transparent!

Technically speaking, it’s a huge project, isn’t it?
Yes! It takes a lot of investment. Fortunately we are accompanied by our fellows from SeaNaps in Leipzig.

How far can it go?
We would like the wallet in the application to be reused in other user structures of our system (other festivals, concert halls...). In 2018, we are a few festivals to test this system. In the long term, we would like it to be operational for any kind of cultural structure.

"Blockchain my art" project has been initiated by SeaNaps. It is developed in partnership with TodaysArt. With the supports of the Creative Europe program, the Occitany State and Sacem.
In beloved memory of Jean Faget.

Les Siestes in Portugal

Les Siestes is settling down a new edition in Coimbra - Portugal this late August (24, 25, 26 of August) ! Bem-vindo !

Les Siestes have a long history abroad.
Such a long history that Les Siestes actually are the most exported French music festival with 21 editions organized in 14 different countries over 4 continents.

So when the Casa das Artes in Coimbra have asked us to think about a first Portuguese edition in 2018, we’ve been super thrilled within the first minute. There is no doubt that Portugal is a land of discovery that has a lot to offer (an excellent, diverse and stimulating local scene and beautiful venues and a perfect weather).

For this first Portuguese edition, we’re back on our roots, building a line-up with artists we like a lot and that have impressed us in the past years. We’ve came along with an almost 100% electronic program, some kind of best of Les Siestes.

As always our concerts will be free of charges and will be held during the daytime (end of the afternoon) in the backyard garden of the Casa das Artes Bissaya Barreto.

M.E.S.H. (US) - Dj set
M.E.S.H. is rendering a vivid vision of where next for modern, rhythm-driven electronic music. Ossifying fluidly skeletal patterns from a rich pool of far flung rhythmic DNA, his music describes a hyperreal place-out-of-time framed by matrices of tessellating grids and vapour-trace contours rent in near-VR detail.

Varg (SE) - Live
Varg’s music embraces beautifully brooding chamber synth vignettes in the faults between granite techno slabs and heart-rending black metal gestures consistently executed with a detached, crooked sleight of hand.

Kate NV (RU) - Live
Excellent, effervescent, charmingly whimsical, Kate NV’s music is made of rhythmelodic percussive pointillism and splayed choral vox recalling the sweetest sides of FAY, Visible Cloaks, D.K., Steve Reich or Jameszoo.

Zaltan (FR) - Dj set
Zaltan runs Antinote, a Parisian label with a distinctive roster of artists who are not appearing on other labels, giving Antinote a feeling of singularity. Zaltan’s DJing echoes his label. His sets are playful and pleasingly freeform, peppered with catchy tunes you don’t hear other DJs play.

Giant Swan (UK) - Live
One of the most nattered about new Bristol acts, Giant Swan tuck away a fibrillating techno charge somewhere between Tessela and Phase Fatale styles but with added briztle grunge for flavour.

DJ Nigga Fox (PT) - Dj set
Nigga Fox reasserts his position at the vanguard of Kuduro and its mutant offshoots by pushing the levels of detail and rhythmic tension in his productions to lethal degrees, resulting some of that sound’s most warped (pun intended) and irresistibly driven workouts.

We’ve decided to end our music series at Musée du quai Branly.

The series’ premise was to hand over the keys of the museum’s audio collections to artists, who then played in the museum’s garden live shows, DJ sets or hybrid performances inspired by the archive. From 2011 to 2017, Les Siestes Electroniques had thus offered to 60 artists a unique access to the ethnomusicological collections of the museum.

We’ve produced a short video documentary in order to say goodbye to this beautiful adventure and remember how precious it is to be able to develop such discovery times.

2018 Editorial

Why are we organizing a festival? And why it’s one of the best of its kind?

Everything we do is driven by one specific goal: to meet the unexpected and to live curious. That sounds like craps from an ad, we know that ... But we strongly believe that there is a real need of otherness nowadays.

Culture has become a land of segregation. Every festival has its specific audience and have to please its target spectators to sell tickets. People buy tickets, especially the expensive ones, when they know what they will see. There is thus less and less space for adventures and risky business.

That’s why Les Siestes has come with a unique recipe from day 1: free daylight concerts held in a public park. Where people who carefully read those words and care about our lineup can meet those who just don’t give a shit about the best new sound lately rated by Resident Advisor/Wire/Pitchfork.

We’re all living on the same planet. And, as Kanye West once said: «At the end of the day, if two people who don’t know each other, dance together, then there is hope. That’s the beauty of music.»

Les Siestes in Leipzig

First edition for the SeaNaps festival, our small brother from Germany :) Leipzig, 8-10 September 2017.

SeaNaps is a 3 days festival, which will take place in different locations of Leipzig, the 8th, 9th and 10th of September. The main artistic medium is music, but SeaNaps aims at proposing a transdisciplinary approach and, to do so, is working with several local associations and festivals of visual arts, performance and technologies.

It was born from the will of two associations, one French (Rotation, in Toulouse) and one German (HABeaTUS, Leipzig), to co-curate and organize an event reflecting what each country’s alternative scene had best to offer.

This year, the main scene of the festival will be set in the Grassi Museum, where 10 concerts will take place, co-curated by SeaNaps and Les Siestes Electroniques.

2017 Editorial

Why Les Siestes is the best festival in the world? Here is our answer :)

The more choices you have, the less you renew your activities.

Lost among a vast number of possibilities — free access to unlimited repertoires, the Alexandria library available all around the world, infinite combinations — the 21st century individual have prefered to rely on algorithms that, for now, would only lead him to familiar things: « If you like this, you will like that »
Regardless of the complexity of the world, it’s incredible heterogeneity, it’s danger, an individual will only focus on things that look like her or him. She or he stays in his comfort zone, like a leisure boat sailing along without losing sight of the shore. “Otherness” is perhaps the most extreme experience of our times!
In this way, navigating in the quiet seas of broadcast channels and other customized playlists offered by streaming services, we have no hope of stumbling upon an unlikely track that we are unsure what to think of. The World is finished. We have discovered it once for all. It is rather comfortable. Explorers are no longer relevant.
Yet we live in a wild and violent world. People are furiously debating, fighting for many contrasting views on issues. Some are even screwing their own country out convinced that they are right. We’ve got to cope with that. Moreover, we’ve got to treasure it. We’ve got to embrace diversity and the turmoil of the outer world. We’ve got to kiss our enemies, the ones that think differently – this depressing neighbor, this embarrassing cousin and this dumb colleague.
Could you tell us when was the last time you saw a gutter punk, a classy student, an alter-globalist citizen, an extremist believer, a jaded thirty year-old guy or an unruly teenager spending time together? What kind of occasion permits this social mix? We hope that our event makes it possible. We think that there is nothing better than discovering by accident a new musical sphere, than changing our minds, than arguing with our partner when he or she dances to music we dislike.
Les Siestes is not the world’s best festival because it aligns with our own musical taste, because it has everything that counts in our favorite musical scene, nor because it’s what we have been exposed to our whole career. It’s the total opposite of that! Les Siestes is the world’s best festival because it respects any sort of disagreement, because you can invite there your embarrassing cousin, your depressing neighbor or your dumb colleague; because you’ll hear as many loved tracks as musical styles you’ll hate. Pleasure is not guaranteed for all. Everything can thus happen.
Isn’t it exciting not to know where we’re going?

#SweetSixteen #SpreadTheLove #UtopiaForever

A million thanks

And a statement...

This year has been quite hard for us, French folks. It was thus a truly bliss to see that you were as many as last year to enjoy our events (maybe even more). It was delightful to see all of you, the student, the banker, the old IDM fan, the unemployed, the new bachelor, the queer community, the young parents, the dancer, the nanny, the refugee, the indie pop lover, the punk, the City counselor ... being so diverse but being part of the same event.
We truly think we, as entertainers, need to cherish this popular aspect of our events. The new frontier is not to be more cutting edge, more avant garde, more nerdy, but really popular. Our new adventure is to be able to reach diverse audiences while staying true to our niche DNA. Becoming one of the most quality popular event. Not the biggest one, nor the most famous, but the one where an eclectic audience merge to celebrate a fucked-up lineup.

Stay strong. Stay curious. And we’ll build together a more open-minded society.

Why we won’t reveal our 2015 lineup?

This year’s edition of Les Siestes Électroniques will take place in Toulouse from June 25th through 28th, with one key change from last year: we aren’t announcing any acts!

Past editions of Les Siestes Electroniques have featured performances from the likes of Magic Mountain High, Redshape, Jessy Lanza, DJ Deep, Nils Frahm, Andy Stott, Modeselektor, Redinho, Connan Mockasin or Ariel Pink. But for our 14th edition, we won’t reveal this year’s lineup, meaning attendees won’t know who’s playing until June 24th.

Here is a small interview published in Resident Advisor of our founder Samuel Aubert to find out more.

You’re not announcing this year’s lineup. Why’s that?

It’s a kind of way to challenge ourselves. It’s very rooted in the way we have been developing the festival for years now. Not revealing the lineup is a way for us to say that we’re now all grown-ups. And we are a festival dedicated to adventurous music that demands some trust from the audience. This is also a way to free ourself from the business and the hype.

How do you think festivalgoers will react?

We’ve built a strong relationship with our audience over the years. People come to our festival without knowing exactly what they will listen to. They also know they won’t appreciate 100 percent of the lineup. Even the people involved in our crew are telling me : "WTF was this weird band about?" I have to challenge our audience, to push people in directions they won’t get by themselves. In a certain way, I don’t want to please people too much. But our audience is now used to that. So I hope we’ll benefit from that strange relationship we’ve built over the years. We’ll see.

Your statement is raising a point about reasons behind event attendance and the essence of festivals. How do you see your work as a curator?

Here is what I’m looking for in music: to be as thrilled as a teenager. Do you remember when you were 15 years old and you discovered a massive piece of modern music? I will always remember when I first listened to Autechre for instance. I was one of those indie-pop kids and it blew my mind. I suddenly became obsessed with IDM! I wanna feel that again and again, all my life. And I want to share that very moment. That’s how I see my work as a curator and this is what Les Siestes Électroniques is about.

Les Siestes in Paris

The 4th edition of Les Siestes Electroniques in Paris will be held every Sunday of July (July, 6, 13, 20 & 27) and will be starring Joakim & Kindness, Ron Morelli, Les Cris de Paris, Frédéric Sanchez, Heatsick, Bambounou, Frank Fairfield, Giai dieu #57. x This edition is a very special one.

Call for proposals

For the second year in a row, we’re organising talks and worshops along with our concerts. This "Futurism Meeting" as we call it, will take place in Toulouse, at the same venue as the concerts, a public park right in the center of the city, on June 28 & 29.

Who can answer this call for proposals?

This is an open call! Everyone can answer: musicians, hackers, developpers, students, journalists, advised listeners ...

Is there a theme?

Yes, there are actually three:

1) DIY : shared music and knowledge
The art of Doing It Yourself is in the reappropriation and enhancement of existing tools and software for exploring your creativity. You have developped or customized (hacked, in a positive sense) some software, tinkered around patches, programming languages, virtual or physical instruments, or are experimenting with original solutions with existing tools, and you want to show other people how you achieved that. You want to share your know-how of that of your company, in an interactive way that encourages exchange and with between hobbyists or curious minds.

2) Beyond passion, a real project
Get your name out there, make your music live and maybe make a living out of it, is a long dark road that deserves to be given some clarity. Nowadays musicians have an extensive amount of digital tools, often collaborative, for the creation, spreading and promoting of their music. But which ones should one use? What is their efficiency? How to find the right tools for progressing? What traps should be avoided? Whether you had a happy or unfortunate experience, have just invented one of those tools, are about to launch a startup on the topic, are experienced enough to explain on how to use them, or can introduce us to who is who and other tips and tricks, there is a lot to say and be shared! Feedback on experiences, presentation of tools for accompanying musicians, legal aspects of musical business or artistic direction, the musical industry involves a wide array of actors who we wish to introduce and confront to their public.

3) Beyond music, a rich cultural background
Music is not merely air moving, it can’t be reduced to its basic physical expression. It necessarily involves images and values that défine an aesthetic and social context that goes beyond just the music. It then appears important to be able to observe and dissect pop culture in order to demonstrate that it is intfinitely more than entertainment industry, and a decisive part of today’s society. Whether you are a researcher, a writer or simply an enlightened amateur convinced of the evocative power of your favorite aesthetics, we are inviting you to a debate around the visual aesthetics, generational conflicts, fashion trends, or language transformations associated with music.

What’s the deadline?

Submission deadline: April 21th 2014.
Your proposal will be reviewed through a "perfection game".
You may modify your proposal until April 30th.
Papers will be selected at the latest on May 15th

What are the conditions?

You won’t be paid as the principle of those meetings is to share knowledges between peers. But we’ll cover your transport and accomodation costs.


2014 Video Teaser

New year, new visual identity! Don’t forget our dates: June 26-29!

Les Siestes in Vietnam

Les Siestes goes around the world as much as possible and especially tries to reach unusual destinations once a year. So after Congo these past two years, we’ll settle down in Vietnam for some special showcases over there this October.

We’ve been travelling like this not because we’re in search of some kind of exotism. The reason is that we’re trying to push a little bit further the definition of what an electronic festival could be and one of the best ways to do so is to be confronted to different contexts and crowds. These are really enriching experiences!
With the support of the Institut Français and the cooperation of the Musée du quai Branly, we’ll then discover the Vietnamese audience along with Vincent Moon, Laurent Jeanneau and Jean Nipon. As usual a short film we’ll be edited from this journey (see the documentary about Les Siestes in Congo).

Over the past years Les Siestes Electronique has been on a relentless mission to unearth largely unheard gems from across the musical spectrum. Les Siestes Electroniques thus join the famous Musée du quai Branly in Paris to propose an Vietnamese carbon copy of the French festival. Born of a reflection around the themes of the cultural diversity, the project proposes to musicians an exceptional access to the audio collection of the museum (dedicated to non-occidental cultures). These musicians will thus be invited to sample a set of resources of an unsuspected wealth, and then to replay it during an ultimate public event.

The invited artists

• Vincent Moon
Vincent Moon is a filmmaker who started out working for La Blogotheque, a music website which has since become incredibly popular, due in no small part to Moon’s contributions to its Take-Away Shows project. The concept was to create single take film recordings of bands and musicians performing in unusual spaces. The result earned Moon international recognition. After a couple of years, Moon moved on from the Take-Away Shows to work on his own projects, making films for Mogwai, Efterklang, R.E.M, Beirut, The Arcade Fire and The National, before setting up Petites Planetes, a ‘nomadic’ film label which aims to document aural and visual traditions from all around the world.

• Laurent Jeanneau
Laurent Jeanneau is a specialist in field recordings who spent a lot of time in Asia developing his work. A long time practitioner of ethnic field recordings, which he releases on his own label (Kink Gong Records) as well as on Sublime Frequencies, Laurent’s work could be divided in two distinct approaches. Laurent Jeanneau travels to remote regions in order to record tribal sounds that characterize the life of remote ethnic minorities. However, his side project, Kink Gong modifies these recorded sounds in order to create moods and ambiences that translate into unique soundscapes. From the moment Laurent Jeanneau’s collage work reach your ears that your attitude to traditional ‘world’ music will be changed forever. His soundscape approach to so-called ‘world’ music emitted something really unique and captivating.

• Jean Nipon
Jean Nipon is an enigma to say the least. Hardcore drummer, DJ, sells records for two years in Paris at Katapult where he meets DJ Wet with whom he starts Teamtendo (Teamtendo was a duo of giant plushies who played 8-bit-gabber- electro on tricked-out Gameboys). Does some remixes for TTC, Ark, Micronauts, Cosmo Vitelli, Lesbians On Ecstasy, Adam Kesher, David Rubato. Directed three volumes of the DJ-oriented "Eurogirls" vinyl project with Orgasmic. Get involved into the Institubes adventure … If Jean Nipon started out as a drummer, he got into DJing since 1997. It then became something of an art form, and many a reveler remembers his seven-hour sets at Paris Paris where, as a resident, he would play the latest bangers in custom- edited form, plus Prince, Minor Threat, Aphex Twin and the Beastie Boys, Dinosaur Jr and Lio, Pink Floyd and Shellac, My Bloody Valentine and KRS One. What he does with those CD decks... Nobody can touch him.

• Vu Nhat Tan
Composer of orchestral, chamber, piano, and multimedia works that have been performed in Asia, Europe and elsewhere, Vu Nhat Tan is among the leading artists in the field of electronic music and experimental sound art in Vietnam. He also writes about contemporary music and is a lecturer at Vietnam National Academy of Music.

• Nguyen Hong Giang
Noise music composer under the moniker of Writher, keyboard player for the post-rock band Time Keeper, Nguyen Hong Giang is a young and yet talented musician that has interest in many different genres of music.

Press Kit

Les Siestes in Montréal

We’ve first been invited to play in Montreal by the lovely Piknic Electronik crew. Back in 2009, we’ve crossed the Atlantic ocean with Joakim, Jackson and Georges Issakidis to play on an epic gig under the rain. 4 years later, thanks to Piknic Electronik again, we’ll be back with Pilooski, Mondkopf and Arandel to celebrate a pretty special Bastille Day!


- Guru stage: 3:00 x 7:00 pm

Borealis is shadow, a darkness unveiling the presence of light. Borealis is wind, air in motion, a path forever within change and without permanence. It is an act of folding dream reality into waking reality.

Head of the fast rising imprint In Paradisum, Mondkopf has a love for the experimental, the industrial and the distorted that he shares with the likes of Kangding Ray, Kareem and Ancient Methods. The young master of concrete-crumbling techno got the rugged, freshly twisted rhythms that has made the French electronic productions quite famous over the years, but the vibe is now darker yet quite thrilling. Mondkopf’s cinematic vibe is thus sustained throughout, balanced equally with stylish dancefloor violence and is embracing with real intensity the influence of abrasive forms of metal music.

- Moog stage: 2:00 x 11:00 pm

Nany Leven
A perfect biological fusion between Machinedrum, James Holden and the singer from Pegase.

Arbutus Djs
Arbutus is an artistic community based in Montreal. Beginning as a DIY loft space, Arbutus Records developed to cultivate and promote the artists associated with the space. Emphasis on friendship and collaboration within the scene has lead to an increasingly multimedia oriented endeavor, moving beyond music to include film and literature. Arbutus develops a scene and culture, with each member’s success contributing to the success of the whole. Individual talents (such as Doldrum, Grime or Majical Cloudz) combine for a stronger product and artistic identity.

Arandel is not a band, Arandel is not a character. Its creator, more than a mere unidentified being, is above all a multi-instrumentalist who would like his true identity to remain in the background on this project: Arandel is a secret entity whose only function is to let the music take centre stage. Remaining anonymous to explore every given possibility, showing many facets to the world, all underpinned by an experimental sense of music: Arandel is a new workshop for this pop craftsman, brought up on krautrock, French electronic and Berlin minimalism.

With a deep love for the soulful and strange, Pilooski has developed a unique style that has found him a solid fanbase around the globe. As part of the D.I.R.T.Y. crew he has put out the now legendary series of Dirty Edits EPs, collecting forgotten gems, sometimes editing them beyond recognition. Between that and his love for early sci-fi, he’s made time to do remixes for folks that share his taste in music, which happens to include everyone from LCD Soundsystem to the Mystery Jets or Jarvis Cocker. It doesn’t hurt that Pilooski has a vast knowledge (and collection) of the strange and wonderful records of the past, often uncovering gems of french psych or krautrock that would still sound ahead of their time in any Villalobos set. As for his mix, Pilooski delves into his bag of tricks, combining rare slices of pop, disco, house, and other re-arranged musical selections into an oddly dark and psychedelic affair.

Futurism: call for proposal

For our 2013 edition, we’ll try to push one step further by inviting people to share their own experiences and skills around music technology. Based upon the DIY concept, we want people to interact, discover and share all together.


You present an idea you like, your experiences, projects of your own.
You can also come for open talks and assist to demos.


One presenter show to the audience a particular tool, instrument, concept. Practice is preferred to theory, with an important time for Q&A.

Workshop/Master Class
A group of people focusing on a product or rather on a global solution/concept. Attendees interact, share their knowledges and so progress.

Sharing Experience
Feedback from artists, partners, users on creative experiences.

Open Talk
Focused on a specific and important purpose or task but beginning without any formal agenda, beyond the overall purpose or theme.

Lightning Talk
Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers.

How long?
Between 5 and 60 minutes each.

These events will be held during the time of the festival, 27th to 30th June 2013.

Taking place outdoor, in the city park "Jardin Compans-Caffarelli".
