Sebastian Dicenaire was born in Alsace, and now works in Brussels. Writer, poet, author of radio fiction and podcasts, he uses language both in writing and through sound and video. He has published works of poetry (Döner-kebab, ed. Héros-Limite; Personnologue, ed. Clou dans le fer; Dernières Nouvelles de l’Avenir, ed. Atelier de l’agneau… ). In his performances, he tries to push the limits of the spectator’s imagination by encouraging them to create their own ‘mental cinema’, mixing text and sound. His radio fiction blends many genres – poetry and science fiction, mythology and technology – and has won awards at several festivals.
Svië is a duo made up of Gaëtan Gromer and Antoine Spindler, sound artists and composers of electro-acoustic music.
Gaëtan Gromer leads a creative activity at a crossroads between composition, performance and multimedia installation. He uses the astonishing power of suggestion and immersion of sound to deliver a certain view of the world, a particular point of hearing, to ‘tell’ with sound. He is one of the winners of the Imagina Atlantica 2012 European Digital Arts Prize in Angoulême and wrote the music for Samuel Henry’s Juste l’embrasser, which won the SABAM prize at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival in 2008.
Antoine Spindler is a violist and teacher at the Haute école des Arts du Rhin. A member of the Ethos Quartet and the Plurium Ensemble, he has also played with the Linéa Ensemble and the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra. He has performed on several stages, including the Festival Musica in Strasbourg, the Tonhalle in Zurich and the Asian-Pacific Contemporary Music Festival in Seoul, South Korea. He specialises in electroacoustic and mixed music, notably with the Live.Animated.Orchestra or as a member of the Jafta trio.
