RadioShop is an official partner of the second edition of the Tropisme festival taking place in Montpellier, France, from February 25 to March 15, 2015.
This major creative event, featuring cutting-edge and avant-garde programming, mixes digital and new technology worlds with music, contemporary art, architecture, and a wide range of other disciplines.
For over two weeks, dozens of artists from around the world come to Montpellier to present their creations and shows, with concerts, installations, performances, meetings, film projections, architectural and culinary creations, video games, clubbing, programs for kids, workshops, brainstorms, and much more.
The festival’s artistic team, led by Vincent Cavaroc, also in charge of artistic programming for the “Gaité Lyrique” festival in Paris, chose RadioShop to create and implement the festival’s web radio, on-line 24 hours a day (http://www.tropismefestival.fr/radio/webradio.html), broadcasting a custom sound design created by RadioShop sound designers to represent the festival’s artistic programming.
Installed on-site by RadioShop teams in the ephemeral Tropisme Radio studio (at the La Panacée Contemporary Art Center in Montpellier), the RadioShop web radio system can also be used to broadcast shows, interviews, and programs, all produced live.
In order to exchange ideas regarding its expertise in sound design, RadioShop will give a presentation on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 4:00 PM on the topic of musical design, as part of a series of conferences being held for the “Professions of Tomorrow: Cyber-Musician” workshops and meetings. Rémi Saboul, a local musician involved with many projects, including “rinôçérôse” (nominated for the French Victoires de la Music award, numerous international tours, four albums and i-Tunes ad syncs, Victoria’s Secret USA, and much more), and a sound designer and musician in the RadioShop team is leading this workshop.
