Maker Bio:

Benoît Poulain makes musical instruments since 20 years from diverted objects and recycled materials, “wild instruments” or electronic instruments.

In 2017, he founded the Du grain à moudre collective in Normandy (France) to develop sound creations (as Toystroy), shows, installations and workshops surrounded by around twenty other multidisciplinary artists.

Project Name: Toystroy

Project Introduction:

TOYSTROY is a resolutely electro trio between low and high tech, mixing noise, minimalist techno, sound layers and sequenced rhythms. The project perfectly combines instrumental construction, musical creation and music of objects, video and digital work of sound and images in an original plastic universe.

With Florence Kraus, Benoît Poulain (music) and Olivier Garouste (VJing).

Special Thanks
