THE SOUND

“ACR RMX” is an excerpt from a 80mn sound piece based on a huge collage and cut-up of archives taken from the ACR (the creative radio workshop from the Ferench national cultural radio, France Culture), gathering experimental music, concrete music works, radio art works, created between 1969 and 2009.  This piece gathers excerpts from works by : Bernhard Leitner, Vincent Epplay, Pierre Schaeffer, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster & Christophe Van Huffel, Thomas Koner, Biosphere, Hervé Birolini, Loris Gréaud and many more.

THE ARTIST

RadioMentale  is a DJ and sound artists duo founded by Jean-Yves Leloup & Eric Pajot. The band can be seen as a sound-system influencing on the airwaves, clubs, urban spaces, web & art venues. They started their career in 92, with their own radio show, playing experimental music, concrete music, ambient & electronic. During ten years, they produced this weekly and cult radio show in Paris for Radio FG (first french and independant electronic music station), national Swiss station Couleur 3 and Tokyo Shibuya FM. During this period, they also played in the first techno and rave parties organized in Paris.  From the mid-90’s, they started to work in the field of contemporary art, composing sountracks and soundpieces for exhibitions, and collaborating with video artists, writers, designers or film directors.
