CHLOÉ + TRANSFORMA

11:15 pm till 00:15 am

KILL THE DJ . FR/DE . AN EXCLUSIVE AUDIOVSIUAL LIVE ACT !

September 2007, Vasarely Foundation. Astonishing projection of « Synken », a visual trip co-signed OST (music) et Transforma (a group from Berlin known for their work with Apparat and their leaning for graphic odyssey).

At the same time Chloé’s first album « The Waiting Room » was released, a sensitive and determined DJ, always ready to mix into her melting-pot a very wide culture of music with implacable « minimalist » tried out in clubs across the Rhine, after the Pulp episode.

The music that Chloé patiently produced is an ambitious puzzle, a slide into techno land made by an artist who knows how to inject here and there experimental and rock punctuations (of ashes, obviously, in line with the album cover inspired by Peter Saville). A techno underplay lovingly entied to be split apart all the more easily by pulsations, falsely timid voices and brass instruments with obssesive motifs. It is the encounter between these two worlds that Seconde Nature is offering you : Chloé will plunge « The Waiting Room » into the twisted and yet sometimes luminous imagery of Transforma. An exclusive audiovisual experience with an scent of the obvious...(Photo : Marco Dos Santos / Text : Benoît Hické / Translation : Caroline Newman)

MONOLAKE

00:30 am till 01:30 am

IMBALANCE COMPUTER MUSIC . DE . LIVE

Robert Henke is an electronic music player from Berlin inspired by technological odysseys and new ways of envisaging the creation of sound. Well-known for the albums he released with Chain Reaction (Maurizio’s label) his compositions and all his other projects are developing a purified techno interlude of a very « dub » feeling, very popular on the German underground. He has over the past ten years with the Monolake structure followed a very interesting direction that has led him into contemporary art and multimedia performances (of which « Atom » was shown at the Centre Pompidou last April). At the Cité du Livre, plunged in the shadows over the levers of his diabolical machine (Monodeck) he will give us a condensed presentation of his work, experimental and buzzing with obsessive rhythms.

MISS KITTIN

01:45 am till 04:45 am

NOBODY’S BIZZNESS . FR . LIVE/DJ SET

For her comeback Miss Kittin has decided to do exactly what she wants. On her album « Batbox » released on her own label and made just as she intended it to be, we can rediscover her love for the electro-pop of the 80’s, Chicago house and the urban rhythms of Booty Music. Micro always close at hand, once again she murmurs her Gothic tales and other memories of improbable parties. And she won’t stop there as she plays behind her turntables turning round a set as eclectic as she likes them to be. (Photo : DR / Text : Olivier Kerdudo / Translation : Caroline Newman)

SARAH GOLDFARB

05:00 am till 06:00 am

TREIBSTOFF RECORDINGS . FR . LIVE

With a career that has really taken off over recent months : Sarah Goldfarb lines up sets throughout Europe and new releases (with own house label Roman, Photo and with the German’s Treibstoff). Yet this artist makes no concessions and is following a direction that leads through minimal syncopations and unrelenting techno. Ah... and one last thing ! Don’t expect to find either a young DJ of Slavic charm and generous curves, or a seventy-year old New Yorker high on amphetamines … (Photo : DR / Text : Olivier Kerdudo / Translation : Caroline Newman)
