French musician/composer Franck Vigroux is a multifaceted artist whose works şrange from electro-acoustic and experimental electronic music to modern composition, improvisation, radio works, avant rock, and beyond.
Kurt d‘Haeseleer is the artistic director of the WERKTANK, factory for new and old media art. He produced several videos and (interactive) video installations and works regularly as a videodesigner for theatre, dance and opera, and also makes his own audiovisual performances.
‘The Island’ is a sensorial, associative and electrifying experience, inspired by a number of stories of islands and valleys destined to be submerged by the construction of a hydroelectric dam, causing deep human and geographic upheaval, questioning the replacement of one world by another and our blind belief in progress. A phantasmagorical universe unfolds through incisive electronic music and reality-bending video images, resulting in a “mental journey” through a topography of mutating places.
