BIO | Behind the moniker Cocoon hides Christophe Demarthe, lead singer of Clair Obscur, one of the French leading groups of the post-punk scene of the 80s, and today co-founder of the Acoustic Cameras project. Cocoon is a global project mixing indifferently electronic music, video, photo, text, performance. One of its red threads would be the extension of Clair Obscur’s attempt to move the frames of representation. 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… He has collaborated with visual artists Pierre Beloüin, Ludovic Chemarin©, P. Nicolas Ledoux, Ultralab, choreographers and theatre directors Anne Juren, Annie Dorsen, Agata Maszkiewicz, Superamas.
