La Boule Noire & Vedettes
Discovery Zone is the experimental pop project of New York / Berlin musician and multimedia artist JJ Weihl. After the slow-building but undeniable fervor around her debut album Remote Control, Discovery Zone announced her second album Quantum Web due out March 8th via RVNG Intl. and Mansions and Millions (GSA). Inspired by the omnipresence of advertising and corporate culture as much as the potential of cybernetics and neural networks, Discovery Zone plunges into an uncanny valley with Quantum Web, where the distinctions between the earnest and the ironic blur in tandem with the border between the human and the post-human.
Discovery Zone explores a widescreen pop sound speckled with luminous vocal performances and baroque instrumental flourishes. On stage, she utilises a laboratory of instruments and 3D visuals to explore the universe as a source of information.
Support : Alexis Lumière
Alexis Lumière is the name of Alexis’ solo musical adventure.
And like any adventure, it has a beginning: the 80s/90s in the Parisian suburbs, the first home consoles, video game soundtracks compiled on tapes and a life punctuated to the bpm of DBZ and X-Files episodes.
Alexis draws on the cult references of his youth to create his own mythology which he transmits both in his recorded compositions and during energetic and generous shows.
