Lowave Collection

Lowave's film and video collection has been built between 2002 and 2014 and features over 250 video artists and filmmakers from around the world. The label has contributed to an important number of international exhibitions, biennials, film and video festivals, as well as academic programmes. As Lowave's activities evolve, we have stopped our film distribution and our catalogue serves now as an archive that documents over a decade of film and video art history. A selection of our DVDs is on sale at Re:Voir in Paris.

Rodolphe Burger

*1957, Colmar, France. Lives and works in France.

Rodolphe Burger, founder of the group Dernière Bande in Strasbourg, which became Kat Onoma in 1986, is a singer, guitarist and composer. He develops in parallel with Kat Onoma, a successful solo career (including Meteor show, and receiving the Charles-Cros prize in 1998), cine-concerts with writer Pierre Alferi and various collaborations: 48 cameras, Eugene Savitzkaya, James Blood Ulmer, etc. In 2002, he founded his own production company re-using Dernière Bande as the name. Since then, he has produced projects around sound and image, sometimes deviating signifcantly from the early rock sound of Kat Onoma but exploiting the possibilities of experimentation that the group already started. Since 2001, he creates an annual Festival des Vieilles Ploughs, increasing collaborations (from Alain Bashung to Jacques Higelin with Erik Marchand or Serge Teyssot-Gay).
