"Artablism" is a coined term that has been created in 2019 to describe the significant combination of visual art and turntablism in my work. 

This website page presents 15 year-overview of my work in scratch, turntablism, and contemporary art. 
The goal is to inform, explore new opportunities for all enthusiasts and interact with those keen on the field. You can click here to get more information. Enjoy.

Firstly, all the questions arise from a mental and bodily sensation when I was listening to music. The turntables came in my mind when I saw the movie "La Haine" (1995) one year later with the scene with Cutkiller and his scratch.

In 2004, I decide to create a machine that can show my gesture on scratch for learning and visualise my scratch. This machine was compose by LED, photosensitive paper, and a pulley mechanism.

In 2007, I discover max/msp/Jitter and arduino with maxuino. I creat my own virtual DJ player with one motor on each turntables that allow to play vinyle (normal mode) and MP3 (max msp) in real time. Here begin a big story (click on the button...)
