S8JFOU & SIMON LAZARUS

Electro A/V Live

France

BIO

S8jfou’s music has been infusing Simon Lazarus’ lively paintwork for several years now.
The two artists share a vision of the world, an attraction for the “off-screen”, a taste for the
shadows and the beauty of what is built there.
It is by shaping every detail but also by leaving a place and a role for computers that the
two artists create an immersive performance based on contemplation, hallucination,
slowing down and speeding up time. Interaction and randomness subtly influence
creation: the music played by S8jfou impacts the videos created by Simon Lazarus and vice
versa.
The pieces are close to abstract painting, which is combined with a work on rhythm and
choreographic movement until obtaining a ballet of hypnotic textures. The composed
forms are halfway between the lively gesture and the smooth geometry, evoking the
hand/screen relationship and the practice of graffiti until reaching the balance between
impact and contemplation.
Adventurous, invigorating, dancing and playful, this performance is a real experience to
live. S8jfou’s compositions – taken from his new album “Op·Echo” – are cut in warmth and
variations, guided by frantic rhythms or coiled in the softness of the layers. The young
producer feeds on English electronic influences to compose broken rhythms, repetitive
but without redundancy. A learned base on which he then adds several harmonic,
dissonant, distorted layers, like a soloist who would express himself on moving
foundations.
S8jfou and Simon Lazarus explore and transport the audience into a unique sound and
visual world. A radical performance, overflowing with sensations and crazy ideas
