MiracleNu call for contributions : Electronic Fanzines of the Future
As part of MiracleNu Vol 1 – Fragmenter Animated Loop Machine : VJing & Electronic Zines, the MiracleNu collective invites you to share the Fragmenter Animated Loop Machine experience for an afternoon.
What is Fragmenter ?
Imagine a drum machine that controls drawings instead of musical notes. In a word, that’s it. Fragmenter makes it possible to animate drawings made on a digital tablet, to document the act of graphic creation and to bring content to life in a simple and effective way. A free tool that will accompany you for life, and which will open the doors of your brain for eternity. Children, conceptual artists and the elderly are finally put on the same level: inveterate geniuses.
Your mission, if you accept it
1-Download Fragmenter for free, the simplest animation and VJing software in the universe developed by Balazs Keszegh and MiracleNu since 2006

3- We send the result (a .frg file) by email to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are committed to using your contribution in the form of VJing during the concert evening organized in honor of Fragmenter on April 22, 2023 at Plein Jour (Bagnolet). The concerts will be filmed and the videos will be posted online crediting all participants. Those who could make the trip will be pampered within reasonable limits (event / bar / snacks at free price, we will give you some with the ♥️).
You have the right to create for pleasure and in anonymity if you wish. If you waive that right, and take your mission seriously, anything you create can and will be used against all odds, and proudly shared on the Fragmenter overview page and/or as part of the little project activity on social networks.
We’ve already said that Fragmenter is an animation and VJing software. Among the features offered by this turnkey app:
– too psychedelic kaleidoscopic drawing by axial / central symmetry (easy level)
– cartoon by loop (easy level)
-infinite cartoon (easy level)
-frame-by-frame cartooning (intermediate level)
– stop-motion cartooning by rotoscoping (intermediate level)
-use of rhythmic special effects (intermediate level)
– sequencing and special effects synchronized in MIDI (advanced level)
MiracleNu is a transdisciplinary creation collective with variable geometries. Founded in 2006 to cobble together improvised musicals and more broadly to decompartmentalize artistic practices. This collective approach is embodied through multimedia projects (interactive installations, exhibitions, fanzine festivals) which have traveled between Lyon, Budapest, Angoulème, Beirut, Montpellier, Paris and Tokyo. The collective brings together artist/authors (Mario Amehou, Louise Lefort, Benjamin Efrati, Diego Verastegui, Julie Goergen, Petra Marjai, Nao Nishihara, Carin Klonowski), musicians (Wassim Halal, Noel Sarlaw, ZeroDrop, Laurent Clouet), des réalisateurices (Balazs Turai, Zsuzsanna Kreif, Shu Isaka) and scientists (Pierrick Dechaux, Mine Karatas, Balazs Keszegh, Asli Katircioglu, Arsène Sonde, Yohann Benchetrit).
