GEINS’T NAÏT & L.PETITGAND
Geins’t Naït and Laurent Petitgand have been musical activists for over 30 years. However it is useful to point out that the two musicians come from very different backgrounds. Geins’t Naït is the creator of industrial collages in a similar vein to the early work of Einsturzende Neubauten or Throbbing Gristle while Laurent Petitgand is best known for his many contributions to the films of Wim Wenders, the last of which, The Salt of The Earth, received 3 awards at the Cannes film festival (Un Certain Regard selection). Two seemingly opposing registers then but which are united here by their desire to escape from all forms of academism.
