Eric Pajot, born in Bourgogne is a visual artist, a musician and a DJ. The duo started their career in the mid 90’s with their own radio show by drawing on an eclectic range of audio sources, including sound experiments, movie soundtracks, ambient music, experimental and electronic music, natural sounds, fragment of interviews and human voice. Radiomentale is the outcome of that endeavor – but in a new, creative and innovative form!
