See the sounds, hear the colours… Back by popular demand for a second edition, the 15 designers assembled by curator and graphic design artist Pat Hamou for the international exhibition entitled ‘Music on Paper’ have made a living out of mixing the aural and visual senses. United by their love of music and silk-screening, each will present 3 to 5 works drawn from the international music scene. Which bands will be represented? You name it, we’ll have it!——————————————————————————————————————————————–

July 19th & 20th / Satosphère

Stemming from the world premiere which took place at London’s Planetarium last fall, Strictly Kev aka DJ Food will adapt his content to fit the Satosphere in order to provide an unprecedented and immersive phonic and visual experience. The show, created with the help of astronomers from the Royal Observatory of Greenwich, uses music by The Search Engine, images from Kev’s personal archives as well as an array of material provided by the astronomers themselves. The performance presents a remixed version of the album, as well as new and exclusive material that provides spectators with a unique experience. This immersive experience will transport you into a musical and visual universe that has never been experienced before.

Watch an interview with DJ Food filmed during his visit to the SAT in May. Click here.

“A quiet, careful grower…it blooms into something beautiful.” - npr“The perfect album: tender without being sentimental, experimental yet accessible, utterly unique to its maker.” – The Guardian
