Fraction will be the special guest of Canadian Filmmaker and artist Pierre Hébert for an improvised performance in Amiens this week, on the January 20th (Maison de la Culture d'Amiens)

During the past decades,  Hébert  has developed a new type of performance involving "live" animation scratched directly on a film loop while it is rolling in a projector, usually associated with improvised music and occasionally with dance. Usually he is  expanding this live animation practice with the use of computers in the Living Cinema project along with american composer Bob Ostertag.
As experimental/electronica artist, Fraction will do his best to catching up the soul of living cinema, and we are persuaded that his sense of  live improvisation and rhythm deconstruction skills will lead  this performance to a great  art creation. Something to see. Something to listen. Something to live.
Be there.
