Hugo Mir-Valette ( MC8) operates as a hyper reality sound artist, searcher, producer and DJ based in Marseille, France.

It uses sound and technologies as a fertile soil to cultivate and share, considering every detail in the process to free the emotions and establish a sincere connexion with both co-workers and public, unlocking new possibilities with practices of synaesthesia and hybridations to work on our understanding of the earth and its many wonders. 

Its experiments constitute fractal objects anchored in the present, through collaborations or introspection, considerations between time and space, interactive and sympoietic soundscapes, intents to transcend frontiers and due dates, to focus on respect and sharing in the knowledge of self.

Hugo Mir-Valette is supported by the DRAC région Sud (Head of Cultural affairs, region South) and is a Artagon Marseille Resident.
