The Lucid Brain Integrative Project
Emmanuel Reveneau is a French artist involved in music, video and theatre, whose work is deeply informed by self-organization theories, situationism and irony. He currently uses self-designed looping software, Noundo, to improvise wacky atonal groovy soundscapes influenced by free jazz and and the Canterbury scene. Emmanuel headlined at the Y2K International Live Looping Festival (Santa Cruz, California) in 2014 and curates loop festivals in France since 2013, notably the Loop Jubilee series.

Before being a clarinetist, Nelly was an archeologist. Since ever searching links between past and present, she currently plays with the collective Orkestronika, the circus company Tewhoola, amongst others, and develop her solo project: PREHISTO’ZIK. In this last named, she makes her own instruments, based on actual archeological and ethnological knowledge, and loops those miscellaneous items with a RC505, to create ancestral landscapes.
“In music sets of PREHISTO’ZIK, I try to create an anachronistic mixture: one side is the looper, modern ethnocentric equipment of occidental culture, and the other side the timeless and universal sounds of materials like clay, wood, stone, bone. ”
Georgina Brett’s music is created using her voice and effects pedals, creating instant choirs of sound, often in an hypnotic style. Georgina’s music adheres to some avant-garde principles, using harmonious parameters, instead of the more dissonant style of it’s post WWII exponents. Georgina’s music is also gradually becoming a great vehicle for more experimental work, delving into expressive work which plays with the rich world of the media, politics, history, using matrices, semiotics and phonetics. Latest release “The Eclipse Collaborations” an album featuring 16 collaborative pieces. Georgina’s work features in the recent movie “The Killings of Tony Blair” by George Galloway.
Peter Kirn (CDM) “London’s Georgina Brett is part of a generation of solo artists who use layered loops to build trascendental, rotating textures from repetition. Hardware loopers and effects pedals remain the preferred tool here for Brett as for many such artists. But Brett’s work is worth a particular mention for its ghostly, ethereal quality and thoughtful, delicate compositions.”
