Yanneek’s visuals tap into the beat of any music they accompany, vibrating and oscillating until their expanding forms almost jump off the screen or draw us right into it – from wavering deep space tunnels to seemingly infinite lines of sight.
Over the past 15 years, Yanneek has added his creative style to numerous events and projects in Montréal and internationally, creating hypnotic and powerful compositions with Tech Safari Productions and co-founding immersive design studio Vitaminecat, where he works with VJ Cafrine (Catherine Turp) to create high energy, illuminating multimedia installations and live visuals. His work transforms artistic performances into uniquely engaging experiences using cutting edge graphics tech, whether in Cirque du Soleil shows, events and installations for multimedia company Moment Factory, Silent Partners Studio or local music events such the Montréal International Jazz Festival, Igloofest, Montréal en Lumières, Eclipse Festival and MUTEK. Yanneek ramps up the intensity of an already extraordinary Saturday night at Métropolis, harmonizing kinetic visuals with the techno grooves of TAZZ & GIOVANNI RANDISI, MAAYAN NIDAN and BARAC.
