Mathias Delplanque
Sound artist / Composer
Solo projects : Lena, Bidlo, Stensil.
Musical ensembles : The Floating Roots Orchestra, Afterlife Music Radio, The
Missing Ensemble

Mathias Delplanque (born in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in 1973) is a
composer, a performer, an improviser, a music critic, an author of sound
installations, a teacher and the founding member of several musical
ensembles. He lives and works in Nantes (France).

His work as a composer started in 1998 as he graduated from the Fine Arts
School and decided to put an end to his sculpture activity to turn towards
sound creation. He since released more than twenty records on various
international labels (Quatermass, Optical Sound, Cronica Electronica, Plush
!, Mystery Sea, Angle Rec, Low Impedance, Sounds Around…). He collaborated
with musicians from various points of the musical spectrum (Rob Mazurek,
Steve Argüelles, Myra Melford, Shahzad Ismaïly, Ghislain Poirier, Julien
Jacob, Daniel Givens, Black Sifichi, Charlélie Couture…), and worked with
numerous visual artists, writers, videasts, photographers, film directors…
His installation works are frequently shown in galleries and art centers,
and he regularly performs on stage, solo or accompanied by other musicians,
since he is the founding member of several musical ensembles : The Floating
Roots Orchestra (with Steve Arguelles, Rob Mazurek, Black Sifichi, Daniel
Givens, Alice Lewis…), Afterlife Music Radio (with Myra Melford, Ben
Goldberg, Shahzad Ismaïly), The Missing Ensemble (with John Sellekaers and
Daniel De Los Santos)…

Mathias’s sound work takes on several main lines and develops through
different identities. As Lena, he produces electronic music strongly
influenced by jamaïcan dub music. As Bidlo he signs subtle and melodic
electronic songs and sound collages. Stensil is a more electro oriented
project, regularly dedicated to covers and remixes. The works done under his
own name (developed on records, performances or sound installations, and
being either based on field recordings or containing instrumental parts) all
directly deal with the question of the relation between space and music :
music as architecture, spaces made out of sound etc…

Initially a pure sequenced studio production, Mathias’s music transformed
with the years into a more improvised and flexible creation. Showing a real
interest in live electronic music, he developped a very personal approach of
electronic improvisation, based on the use of multiple controlers that
engage the body in the production of electronic performances. His live
creations generally combine electronic sounds and acoustic instruments
treated and sampled in real time.

Mathias Delplanque won several grants (Cultures France, CNC, DRAC Pays de La
Loire, Franco-American Jazz Exchange, French Embassy in India…), and made
several artistic residencies in various countries (France, Canada, India,
USA…).

He runs the label Bruit Clair, dedicated to electronic music and sound art.
