Fraction (Eric Raynaud) is a new media and sound artist working at the intersection of spatial sound, immersive and audiovisual experience design.

His practice has developed from a background in music composition and spatial sound which led him to put together complete skills in the field of new media and creative code art. He devotes his time writing, producing and performing pieces integrating digital materials of different kinds. Combining hybrid scenography, sound and generative visuals, his works aims to create physical experiences within the frame of abstract narration.

Fascinated in particular by sound intensity, energy, ecstasy, and the idea of "being able to sculpt digital disorder as a raw matter", Raynaud finds in the lexicon of sound spatialization the appropriate field for designing atypical pieces, placing at the center of his writing the immediate physical and emotional experience. In 2013, with the support of the CNC, he created the immersive audio visual performance DROMOS presented during  Mutek festival (Montreal) which has eventually been used by Apple in its 30th anniversary video 30. In 2014 he received Institut Français  digital art grant, which allowed him to pursue a research-creation project on real-time ambisonic spatialization and interaction with new media during a residency at the Société des Arts Technologiques, where he then created Entropia that toured the world between 2015-2018. In 2017, He was a laureate of SHAPE, a European scheme of 16 festivals and arts centers that supports musicians and multidisciplinary artists with innovative approaches in Europe.

Also a developper, he was lately leading a residency in artistic research at IRCAM (Paris, France) where he initiated xp4l, released in 2021, a flexible spatial sound system that will help to democratize immersive audio design among a younger generation of composers and new media artists.

As a multidisciplinary artist, his works have been featured worldwide in the major digital and sound art related cultural events. His wide range of skills allows him to collaborate with different people around the world in the field of new media art.
