Today pioneering visual arts imprint Antivj announce the launch of ‘Antivj Recordings‘, a label dedicated to releasing music originally composed for digital art installations. Their debut release arrives from Brussels-based musician and composer Thomas Vaquié, his experimental album ‘Ecume‘ is scheduled for release 10th June 2016.
Since 2007 Thomas Vaquié has specialised in music experimentation for audiovisual work with the AntiVJ visual label, creating site-specific pieces for places such as France’s Centre Pompidou Metz designed by Shigeru Ban, the Old Port of Montreal’s metallic conveyor tower, in Songdo (South Korea’s futurist city project), Oaxaca’s ethnobotanical gardens or Hala Stulecia, Poland’s 70m diameter concrete dome.
Vaquié also creates modern compositions for immersive audiovisual installations, (3Destruct, Onion Skin, Light Sculptures, Cityscape 2095). With a strong sense of composition and narrative, sound designer skills and a capacity to project an image sonically, Vaquié produces striking, emotional and physical pieces, consistently trying to extend visual experiences into physical ones.
Thomas Vaquié’s debut album ‘Ecume‘ presents 8 compositions of densely atmospheric and beatless tracks. If you’re a fan of the likes of Murcof then this album is one for you. Head over to Boomkat to order a copy.
