Behind the moniker Cocoon hides Christophe Demarthe, singer of Clair Obscur, one of the flagship French bands of the post-punk scene of the 80s. Cocoon is a global project mixing electronic music, video, photo, text and performance. One of its red threads could be the extension of Clair Obscur’s attempt to move the performance and reception frames. Since its creation in 2004, Cocoon has performed in numerous festivals: Le Nouveau Festival du Centre Pompidou, Villette Numérique, L’Ososphère, Interstice, Emo-Son, Qwartz Awards, Nuit Blanche, Room 4… He has collaborated with visual artists Pierre Beloüin, Ludovic Chemarin©, P. Nicolas Ledoux, Ultralab ; choreographers and directors Anne Juren, Annie Dorsen, Agata Maszkiewicz, Superamas. Alongside Cocoon, Christophe Demarthe co-founded Acoustic Cameras, a real-time online collection edited by La Manufacture des Cactées and Optical Sound. | Photo: Giona Mottura.
