Raphaël Languillat

March 1-28 [EXTENDED]

A commission and initiative of lovemusic (

An ambient remix of Daft Punk's Digital Love using fragments of William Shakespeare's erotic poem Venus and Adonis. Written and shot during the Covid-19 pandemic, digital love (remix) focuses on the relationship between gender and couple, intimacy and distancing, as well as desire and death.

Raphaël Languillat is a French composer and multimedia artist born in Morocco, merging acoustic instruments and electronic sounds in compositions using extensively the “photographic” (still and moving images), as well as text and color as narrative elements. Dealing with art history and with the re-imagination of narratives, his works question both the disappearance of attention, memory and spirituality, as well as the acceleration of time in our global society. Focusing on details, using a stretched time, limited resources and shifted perspectives, Raphaël composes works which position themselves apart from the overwhelming data feed, and - through their immersive character - at the intersection between experimental video, installation and performance. He is part of the Frankfurt New Music Society executive board and co-founder of the Duo low contrast. He lives and works in Offenbach/Main, Germany.
