Fraction

fraction_radioshow

Eric Raynaud aka Fraction is not a novice. Former indie rock band leader (Mary Lake), electronica producer released by Berliner label Shitkatapult and French labels Plastiqpassion and Infine (since 2008), Fraction also studied and practiced electroacoustic music especially in the wake of the French group of music research GRM created by Pierre Schaeffer.

These last years, Fraction focuses on digital installations thanks to his collaboration with Mathieu Le Sourd (aka Maotik), multimedia and interactive designer. They recently produce an immersive surround performance made for spherical environment, “Dromos”, inspired by Paul Virilo’s theory of dromology, which deals with the speed of organizations and acceleration of circulations and exchanges in our modern “dromocratic” societies and its consequences in term of accident. Infine has released Dromos EP, the sound performance that gets our attention, even without the visual part, probably thanks to its immersive power, between construction and deconstruction, its musical richness and a few nice tracks as Astral Rain Messenger with the spoken-word of Carbonic.

To extend that experience, Fraction delivers for Ice FM a mixtape that gathers some precious influences and challenges that kind of exercise in style.
