Yannick Franck

Real Name:
Yannick Franck
Yannick Franck is a performer, a vocalist and an electronic musician, he also create site-specific audiovisual installations.

He runs the left field music label Idiosyncratics and plays in industrial-noise duo Orphan Swords.

Composition-wise, he has developed a personal style that combines sharp acoustic research and abrasive walls of sound. Often described as trance-inducing, his music is based on the treatment of sources such as instruments and non-musical objects, voice, radio signals and field recordings. It ranges from fundamental acoustic explorations (The Staircase Continuum) to more stylistic-expressionistic searches (Memorabilia); two fields that tend to collide in works such as Hierophany or The Utmost Night.

In the past, Franck has been a member of band Y.E.R.M.O., with player Xavier Dubois and drummer Jason Van Gulick. They have collaborated with artists Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert on a number of projects. They created soundtracks for their installation Collision Zone, held at the Pavilion of Luxembourg, Venice Biennial 2009.

Franck has worked together with Pietro Riparbelli / K11, Craig Hilton, Phil Maggi, Esther Venrooy among others and his music has been released on several labels worldwide.
