Artistic Director since 2002 (L’aérosol, Festival des Giboulées, Batofar, Glaz’Art, L’Entrepôt, Grand Bain Prod), Yann Berthin creates the “Rith Banney” anagram in 2010, and starts to develop his graphic inspiration.
At first in Photography where he sets up several series, which would emerge through multiple exhibitions (Gartenstudio Gallery – Berlin, Center’s Art – Boston, Yes Club – Prague) and several book releases (Trilogie «La Disparition», «Somewhere»).
Then in Video where he easily switches between music supervisor (Antony Salvi) and film direction (Matterflow). In 2016, the video clip of Julia Kent – Gardenmoen (Matterflow Remix) directed by Rith Banney is scheduled at La Gaïté Lyrique (Paris) as part of the Pølar festival, alongside the medium-sized film by Jóhann Jóhannsson, also known for his compositional talents (Arrival, Sicario, The Mercy, Mandy, The Theory of Everything, Prisoners). These experiences strengthened his idea of merging “Arts and Senses” in order to make his artistic proposals complete, intelligible and therefore immersive.Between 2017 and 2019, he had more than 1 million views on social networks.Rith Banney created Material Boys Records in 2016 and added musical dimension to his projects.
From then on, Rith Banney composes electronic music and creates visual content around themes that he loves : nightlife, the deadly sins, and the magic number 7.
In 2018, Rith Banney has multiplied the releases : “Original Sins” Feat. Black Sifichi (EZ3kiel, Brain Damage, Rodolphe Burger, The Black Dog) on Grimey Records / US, “Instability” on Lotus Mathematics / US, “Avarice”, “Pleasure” on Material Boys / FR and “Fantasy” (extented mix) on Play Records / CA, a New year’s Eve compilation alongside Melleefresh, Deadmau5…
In 2019, Rith Banney releases singles every month. “Game” on Material Boys / FR, “Fantasy” on Play Records / CA (Deadmau5, Melleefresh, Kolombo, Noir, Adam K, Julian Jeweil), “7” on Boxon Records / FR (Toxic Avenger, Lazy Rich, T.Raumschmiere, Ostblockschlampen, Valy Mo, François Ier) and many more…
In September 2019, we are going to see his first album “Nightlife & its 7 deadly sins”.
And that will be the opportunity to discover on stage his Live AudioVisual mixing his various music (electronic, house, techno, edm) and his unique visuals in monochrome.
