Spatial Sound


Fraction a.k.a. Eric Raynaud is an experimental music producer whose work focuses on creating intense immersive experiences, involving spatial sound in interaction with other media. His productions first appeared on the Berlin based imprint Shitkatapult before he joined french label INFINE. He works as a sound sculptor, experimenting with rhythmic deconstruction, timbral chaos, apparent disorder and processing synthetic and acoustics sources to create coherent sound organization in dimensional perspective.

He created several acclaimed works, among them 'Dromos' in 2013 for MUTEK festival. A grant by the Institut Français in the field of Digital Arts enabled Raynaud to conduct several months research and creation at Societé des Arts Technologique of Montreal on sound immersion and new media interactions. This led to the creation of Entropia, a unique A/V performance involving a led sphere and ambisonics sound that he has started to present in 2015, and that has been featured by Creators Project, DesignBoom and described by XLR8 as 'one of the most breathtaking and interesting presentations we’ve had the pleasure of witnessing in a long time'.
