Aes Dana a.k.a. Vincent Villuis, composer and sound designer, DJ and co-owner of Ultimae records. Electronic activist since teenagehood, he was also one of the founding members of Asura. Bass player and singer in several coldwave and industrial bands, he then moved on to composing with machines.
Specialised in sampling and layering of accoustic sounds digitally transmuted, Vincent Villuis creates a music which offers multiple listening possibilities. Aes Dana brings a fusion between the British Progressive feel and the traditional American Space Music; with sounds anchored in the psychedelic realm freely flowing into a morning downtempo trance, tribal or smashed rhythms.
So far he has produced 4 solo albums, participated in well over 2 dozen compilations and collaborated on two albums with Swedish artist Magnus Birgersson under moniker H.U.V.A. Network. We expect his next album [ Perimeters ] to be released in 2010.
In 2009, Vincent Villuis composed soundtracks for Science Fiction movie "The Passport" (Amund Lie) and "Atrophy Bank" (Sam Asaert) which should come out late 2009. In June 2009 was released his latest album [ Leylines ] which received many excellent feed back from the electronic audience and beyond.The album was ranked top 10 sales electronic music on Itunes USA and Top 5 on emusic.
In 2009, Vincent Villuis becomes a sponsored artist by TC Electronics.
As the creator of the Fahrenheit Project compilation, he is working on the last chapter of the series prior to re-releasing the whole collection as a deluxe edition.
Vincent Villuis is Official Resident for the Dominicains of Haute Alsace for 2009-2010 and currently works on compositions for a multi-diffusion installation.
