Music & Technology: NOORG in Atlanta residency

Composer’s residency and recording session in the city

The French composer Loïc Guénin will record with the duo NOORG a new album inspired by the sounds of Atlanta. It will be produced by Patazone label and distributed in France in 2020 by Autre Distribution.

During his residency, Loïc Guénin will present a series of performances and lectures with the duo NOORG known for its unique soundscapes and graphical scores. He will lead workshops with Georgia Tech music technology students to create a new piece of music along with local, national, and international artists of Fence and a Pittsburgh, Atlanta group.

Hovering between experimental rock noise with contemporary aesthetics and an electro-acoustic drone, NOORG’s music refuses to adhere to a specific category. The two musicians sculpt sound like matter, weaving a complex web from a unique continous string.

This event is co-organized by the Cultural services of the French Embassy in the United States, Georgia Tech School of Music, with the support of the Face Foundation, Spedidam, Sacem, Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs – Atlanta, Dad’s Garage, Fire House, and Le Phare à Lucioles.
