Xavier Van Wersch
Comparing himself to Frankenstein, Dutchmann Xavier Van Wersch employs deceased and discontinued devices to create music, exploring the relationship between man and machine. Erratic behaviour is the principal condition for interaction. A rarity in the often too-serious world of experimental art, Van Wersch also employs humour during his live appearances, often donning a white professor’s coat as he works intensely to control the chaos that emerges from the end of his fingertips. Van Wersch has performed at major festivals across Europe, including Unsound Krakow, Club Transmediale, Dis-Patch, Ultrahang, and many others.
