Yann Leguay Research Artist

Brussels based sound artist Yann Leguay, defined as a media saboteur by the Consumer Waste label, he seeks to fold the sound materiality in on itself using basic means in the form of objects and videos or during installations and performances he has presented in many places and festival in Europe and further. His flagrant disregard for the accepted norms of audio behavior appropriates unusual machinery for the playback of audio media: using an angle grinder to perform the live destruction of a microphone or using opened hard-drives as turntables. His release activity is equally deviant, releasing silkscreen records or a 7” single without a central hole and a record composed from recordings of vinyl being scratched by scalpel. His Phonotopy label proposes a conceptual approach to recording media and he also curates the DRIFT series on the Artkillart label which overlays several grooves onto a single record, causing randomised playback. He is also involved in many collective projects such as radio researches and events organisations
