The Digital Intervention is an experimental electronic duo formed by British electro-acoustic composer, sound engineer, former Mute artist Paul Kendall and French-born British composer, vocalist Olivia Louvel.
They began to work together in 2002 whilst in Paris. Their first collaborative track was 'La Louve'.
Paul Kendall was responsible for Mute Records 'Parallel Series' which he set up in the 1990s, aiming to bridge the gap between classical electronic music and rock electronic music.[1] 'Parallel series' moved to the French Ici, d'ailleurs... label.
'The Last Writes' was broadcast on Mixing It, BBC Radio 3.
The track "Coma Idyllique" features arrangements by Alan Wilder.[2]
