The Guest Of The Nuit des images
Night Less With ECAL, A Project Led By Nicolas Haeni
Offering a hallucinatory journey into a tropical world that reveals the richness of the biotope, through pure photography, light projections, sound creations and moving images, the students of ECAL(Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne) took chances in order to move off the beaten path.
It is in a lush jungle peppered with surprising installations that visitors have to venture to see the creations of second-year students in the Bachelor of Photography program at ECAL, conceived during a workshop led by Geneva photographer Nicolas Haeni.
The fruit of their research is skilfully highlighted by Camille Blin, designer, co-founder of the ACE bureau and professor at ECAL, responsible for the scenography of this installation.
The Sound Of The Nuit des images Live!
|Live electric concert|
Once again, the cafe-theatre Le Bourg has concocted a musical program for the Nuit des images. Let yourself be transported by the sound of the Night.
Duck Duck Grey Duck (Switzerland)
The Genevan power trio!
Inspired by 70s rock and by contemporary groups that broke down stylistic barriers from 2001, from the Black Keys to Alabama Shakes, Duck Duck Grey Duck navigates between surf and soul, a line of fuzz bass and voice that oscillates between soft and rough. A nuanced sound, vocal and instrumental songs, a Mediterranean psychedelic groove and a Louisiana soul. Duck Duck Grey Duck is sometimes joined by Brandy Butler, the great singer from Philadelphia (The Fonxionaires, Chamber Soul) who has settled in our part of the world!
Robin Girod on guitar and vocals (Mama Rosin, Frères Souchet), Nelson Schaer on drums, Pierre-Henri Beyrière on fuzz bass (Kind & Kinky Zoo).
