Le bestiaire du dedans (The bestiary inside)
Live sound and visual piece for a dimly lit space. In collaboration with Arandel.
Duration: 30 minutes.
Dust and crackling talk about some fantastic story escaped the memory of this old women face that was framed by a floral scarf. It's a dark, mysterious and mystical pilgrimage, a funeral march or maybe just a celebration.

The work of Gabriel Desplanque (1981, Paris) draws links between cinema and literature. In his videos and photographs, the image is thus the medium and the subject of a story whose uncertain and discontinuous construction shapes the meanings.

Giving up the conventional samples and MIDI instruments, Arandel is a migratory project with minimalist influences, that focuses on electro melodies with some krautrock inspiration. This is a faceless project, in which the creators disappear behind the creation: Arandel gives the prominent role to the music.
