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).
These experiences strengthened his idea of merging “Arts and Senses” in order to make his artistic proposals complete, intelligible and therefore immersive.
Rith Banney created Material Boys label 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” Black Sifichi (EZ3kiel, Brain Damage, Rodolphe Burger, Black Dog) on Grimey Records (US), “Instability” on Lotus Mathematics (US), “Avarice” and “Pleasure” on Material Boys (FR) and more very soon on Boxon Records (FR) and Play Records (CA).
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 varied music (electronic, house, techno, edm) and his unique visuals in monochrome.
