A choreographer and composer, Franck II Louise is a pioneer of the French hip-hop scene. He combines music and dance in a highly original manner and the musicality of movement lies at the heart of his work.

He is presently preparing a new creation titled “Konnecting Souls” which will have its premiere in Paris at the end of October, using live motion capture equipment to generate sounds. Fitted with sensors linked to a musical interface, the dancers compose the music of the show in real time and are becoming musical instruments. The usual process of dance / music creation is turned on its head: here, both dance and music come into being simultaneously. For this stop in Boston, during a lecture/demonstration, Franck II Louise will present his process, the technologies involved, and excerpts of his new piece.

    And did you go to Saratoga High?
    If you did, how would you compare Saratoga to MIT?

  4. I’ve never quite understood this hiphop scene… maybe I was headbanging more on Heavy Metal… I personally detest the latest “pimpism”… I do like some artists like eminem.
    Rammstein Rocks!!!
