Antoine Le Dreff
~ René Danger

La roue tourne - performance

Antoine Le Dreff (b. 1993) is a sound artist based in Rennes (France), with training in architecture (ENSA Paris-Malaquais) and sound design (TALM Le Mans – IRCAM). He is a resident artist at B612.
His artistic work covers electronic and acoustic instrument making, sound in space, critical thinking on radio waves and acoustic ecology. He builds electro-acoustic instruments activated in installations or performances. As a sound artist he also collaborates with visual artists, designers and architects, he creates pieces for independent radios, and he gives educational workshops on various subjects related to his field of research.
As a musician and producer, he is mostly active as René Danger. In his performances, he merges his voice with modular synthesizers and his gameboys, mixing traditional melodies and electronic soundscapes. He co-founded the label Editentités, a platform for exploring traditional and futuristic sounds, and is a member of Ondorphine, a collective of sound artists and radio hacktivists.
