Dear all, I’m booking some dates for the duo PASCAL BATTUS/JEAN-PHILIPPE GROSS. They’re available from early June 2012 onwards. Please read these two biographies: PASCAL BATTUS: Pascal Battus started out in music as a teenage rock guitarist, then studied percussion (ENM Le Mans et Noisiel) and finally focused on experimental music and improvisation, shaping his instruments to match his own gestures. He now presents a wide range of sound possibilities and experiences, including the surrounded guitar, acoustic and amplified percussion, acoustic walkman, saz and pick-ups of guitar. He performed all over Europe, Middle-East, Japan, Canada with musicians as diverse as Thierry Madiot, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Thomas Lehn, Martin TÈtreault, Michel Doneda…but also with dancers, visual artists, notably in his duet EYEAR with Kamel Maad (video) and with light artist Christophe Cardoen. He is developing what he calls Graphones, in which he produces sound and drawing on paper with the same gesture and the Sound Massages : low acoustic sounds sourced in everyday objects and tools are produced close to or directly into the listener’s ears. With Thomas Lehn and Michael Johnsen Battus performed at Music Action in Nancy in 2008. Pascal can be seen and heard playing with Bertrand Gauget on You-Tube here more information: JEAN-PHILIPPE GROSS More information: Born in 1979. Before turning to electronic he was playing drum.
