The mother of ceremony of HOT BODIES OF THE FUTURE, presenting experimental queer projects, parties and performances.

Producer, performer and protean DJ, GÆRALD is the mother of ceremony of the Hot Bodies of the Future parties and Hot Bodies choirs. Their first EP “Tarek X I – V”, produced together with Apollo Noir (Yanis, Jeanne Added, Bagarre, Buvette, etc.) tells the story of their affective, sexual and sensory experiences in the nocturnal landscapes of alternative scenes. Five personal and moving vignettes blending dark techno, DIY pop and electronic post punk to defend queer utopias of inclusivity and communion.

Live, GÆRALD is plays with samplers, drum machines and synthesizers. Self-acceptance and emancipation from societal barriers are at the center of this hybrid club project, which is unique in its genre.
