JEANBAPTISTE COGNET / GUILLAUME MARMIN (FR): Unter dem Pseudonym »Walter Dean« haben der Klangkünstler Jean-Baptiste Cognet und der Videokünstler Guillaume Marmin zusammengefunden. Ihre Performances gleichen einer rituellen Handlung, einer Mischung aus geisterhaften Lichtern, Blitzen, Synthesizern und Rauch. Elektronische Klänge werden mit Einflüssen des Rock verwoben. In der Lichtstimmung, die sich im Raum entfaltet, werden vage Landschaften erkennbar. Mit einer ganz eigenen Ton- und Bildsprache aus Rhythmen, Kontrasten und Figuren in Bewegung zieht »Walter Dean« das Publikum in seinen Bann. Die Deutungshoheit aber bleibt bei Ihnen – nehmen Sie Platz!


JEAN-BAPTISTE COGNET / GUILLAUME MARMIN (F): Walter Dean brings together the composer Jean-Baptiste Cognet and Guillaume Marmin, visual artist. Backlit, the duo delivers a live to the pagan Mass, composed of spectral lights, dismantled synthesizers, smoke, anger and love. Walter Dean mixes electronic sounds and rock influences in an immersive device where light beams sculpt space, draw twilight landscapes loaded with poetry as minimal as it is violent. The work of Guillaume Marmin is part of a revival of visual creation by avoiding traditional forms of narration and traditional scenic supports. He is looking for a common language between image and sound, a synesthetic alphabet made of rhythms, contrasts and refined figures in motion.
Jean-Baptiste Cognet is a founder and member of the Act of Beauty and Memorial * projects. He also collaborates as a composer and performer for theatre and cinema. His work feeds on ambient sensations, noise textures, while giving pride of place to the legacy claimed from pop to cold wave. From large ensembles to small formats, his music evolves through a frantic and reverberated psychedelic language.
