Soulwax transient program for drums and machinery is an installation imagined by Soulwax and Ill-Studio, built for performance and operated by seven musicians. The mono and polyphony frequency instruments used for this performance are all positioned on a giant rug, representing the electronic schematic of the installation.
Between 2016 and 2018, this installation travelled around Europe, America and Asia, from Coachella in Palm Springs
to Royal Festival Hall in London.

Ill-Studio conceptualized an installation at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris for the Pigalle Spring-Summer 2018 fashion show.
The installation explored the lifelong relationship between art and the anatomy of the human body and its performances. The scenography established visual parallels between the past, present and future of modernity, from the Roman Antiquity to the Avant-Garde era of the early 20th century and the Open-Source times we live in today.

In 2014, The Dewaele brothers appointed Ill-Studio art directors for their ambitious new project Deewee. More than a record label, Deewee is a building, a studio, a label, a record collection and a publishing house.
The first series of records released between 2014 and 2017 was conceived as an overall body of work inspired by classic encyclopedia collections and iconic library music labels.
Following a global collaboration with Soulwax, Ill-Studio signed the creative direction for the fourth-coming album of Stephen and David Dewaele. The front cover showcases a silver version of a AKG 99c binaural microphone from 1975 used to record the album at Deewee Studio.

To complement the Untold Eivissa exhibition, conceived and curated as a partnership between Ill-Studio and 2ManyDjs, a limited edition flexi disc & poster series was produced for the occasion.
The disc features an interview with Faruk Gandji, discussing the early days of Balearic Club Culture between 1981 and 1987
