L'Age d'Or is an A / V and immersive duo of live performance and contemporary installations. Founded in 2012, Valentin Fayaud (duet composer) did his research in ethno-musicology and an avant-garde practice of the sound-design, with the release of his first eponym EP on the English label Basillar Records. Following a meeting at a workshop, Nicolas Michel, set & light-designer joined the project. Together, they collaborate on a series of musical works and the promotion of scenography using new technological devices. By joining the Parisian label XVIIIEMEPENINSULE they recorded several opuses, multiply the representations in France and forge themselves a true identity over time . Duality on stage for a synthetic opposition between light and shadow, the project moves towards icy atmospheres and landscapes. We find in his performances a search for textures both sounds and graphics, compositions combining organic, digital rhythms and meditative ambiences.
With their cinematographic influences, Valentin and Nicolas create new narrative devices in the form of video-clip, realised by the duo himself. Collaborating on professional experiences in advertising and events, they naturally decide to extend their project beyond the musical scene and to turn their creations into contemporary installations.
