Add To Cart

Based in Paris, France, artists Raphaël Siboni and Franck Rivoire have been collaborating since 2008. Their current project, SUNSET, is a cross-collaboration between contemporary art and electronic music.

In their own words:
From Rave to Booty Bass, from Eurodance to Funeral Doom, from Dark Wave to Transe Goa, we all have grown up under the infinite dispersal of musical subgenres. For each one that emerged, we invented new rituals and changed our outfits. Each time we believed in the promise of a new world. We vibrated with the sound of new synthetic instruments and felt the power of their rises. But it was a mere pile of effects, and as these worlds collapsed one at the time, so did our beliefs. SUNSET is the synthesis of these deserted worlds. A concentration of sub-genres, reduced to their pure emotional intensity. SUNSET is the resurrection of our teenage mythologies, an attempt to reach a generic romanticism, echoing in the darkness of nightclubs. It’s a sunset that slowly crashes onto the ruins of our own subjectivity.

During their residency at Cannonball, the native French duo will complete their latest EP and offer a public lecture staged at a night club focusing on the history of DJing and techniques used by DJs to drive a crowd’s energy.

Franck Rivoire A.K.A. Danger

Born in 1984, Franck Rivoire initiated his career as a graphic designer and conceived a comic book under the name of DANGER. Composed by both music and graphic visuals, the cross-disciplinary DANGER was characterized by a strong nostalgia for the 1980s, serving as Rovoire’s outlet to express the dark emotions of being a teenager in a digital era. His first EP was released by the label Ekler’o’Shock in December 2007, marking the start of his career. Since then, he has released three EP’s, a dozen remixes, created numerous illustrations and videos, and gone on European and international tours. He recently developed a remix for the French electronic music icon Jean-Michel Jarre as a part of the Oxygen Revisited Live Tour.
