V-ATAK [France]
Founded in 2002, V-Atak is a label dedicated to audio and visual art.
Made up with a hybrid mix of Vj’s, movie makers and musicians, the label grew year after year and developed an edgy identity on the Audio/Video live scene.
When performing video/audio live art and producing music clips as well, the crew is at its best by taking risks. V-Atak services and products (installations, Vjing, DVDs) reflect that constant questioning that the label has on manner and matter, playing with the ever-changing digital technology and its limits.
While society, corporations and politics use images and media to exert a control on the masses, V-Atak challenges common sense and ideas through images and sounds. The process that has become them trademark, distorting contemporary media icons to recreate an original sense, offers the public an opportunity to question with irony and violence the mass media representations.
The video Death Mariachi, Feeding your back and Fuel tank presented in 3.Kanal are included in the DVD and CD “Tzii - Rotten Friendship”, produced by V-Atak and Night On Earth (audio label). "Tzii - Rotten Friendship" arises from the encounter between Robin Kobrynski (aka RKO) and Eric Desjeux (aka Tzii), respective founders of these two labels.
