Duoture | BIO
American Improvisor and E-Luthier Dirk Stromberg and French Experimental Filmmaker and VJ Cecile Chagnaud continue to join forces as an improvising duo. First working together in the acclaimed mammoth work time:space:, they have continued to grow their collaboration of organic electro-instrumental sounds and haltingly quirky videos of our world to create performances that are both exciting and ground-breaking. Duoture is interested in the intersection of sound and visuals.
Cecile works have received awards from the Academy Awards and Cannes Film Festival. Dirk has been featured in residencies and festivals in Europe, Asia and the United States.

About the Performance
Dirk performs on his instrument, “Phallophone”, a hybrid electro-acoustic instrument that explores pitch, rhythmic and timbral limits of performative sonic interaction. Cecile delivers a unique palette of videos that are developed through live VJ’ing including sonic and environmental manipulation. Duoture focuses on micro-narratives and the tapestry of possibilities within the development and alignment of ideas.
They continue to find new ways of interaction to create more diverse and exciting pallets.
Technical setup and test (one-hour) for video and audio on the same day as the performance. Once the technical setup and test is done we are unable to shift our equipment.
