Yann Novak keeps on surprising us with his activities. Sound artist, composer, designer, head of his own label (Dragon's Eye Recordings).
Two releases in 2011 (and some tracks included in albums and compilations): "Two Segments" (in collaboration with Mise_En_Scene) on WHITE_LINE EDITIONS and "Presence" (in our favorites list) on hibernate.
To complete this summary, it needs to mention an installation ("3 Surfaces"), a performance with Robert Crouch ("Fata Morgana") and a print edition issued by Line ("Relocation.Triptych"). See here for full details.
