Fraction (aka Eric Raynaud) is a French musician, composer and producer of experimental electronic music. After the release of his first EP Superposition on the French label InFiné, Raynaud moved away from traditional music fields to focus on digital arts, working on complex stage designs and hybrid writings that combines visual, sound and physical medias. Fraction has kept on merging 3D immersive sound with contemporary art and architecture together, incorporating his questioning on themes that combine science and contemporary sociology. Experimentations on the spatial, physical and emotional characteristics of sounds are on the epicentre of his atypical work.

Multimedia artist working on the design of installations, digital scenography and immersive displays, Aurélien Lafargue is a graphic designer, developer and filmmaker. His process involves architecture as much as design, lighting, and all forms of interconnections between arts and technology. His creative pieces are always one with an object, space, or real or virtual architecture, of which he reveals or reinvents the geometrical volumes, angles, surfaces, textures, whether they are organic or digital.
