KRIS DAVIS
Pianist-composer Kris Davis has blossomed as one of the singular talents
on the New York jazz scene, a deeply thoughtful, resolutely individual
artist who offers “uncommon creative adventure,” according to
JazzTimes. The Vancouver-born, Brooklyn-residing Davis was dubbed one of
the music’s top up-and-comers in a 2012 New York Times article titled
“New Pilots at the Keyboard,” with the newspaper saying: “Over the
past couple years in New York, one method for deciding where to hear
jazz on a given night has been to track down the pianist Kris Davis.”
Reviewing one of the series of striking albums Davis has released over
the past half-decade, the Chicago Sun-Times lauded the “sense of
kaleidoscopic possibilities” in her playing and compositions

CLAIRE BERGERAULT

Singer, accordionist and conductor, CLAIRE BERGERAULT is involved in
several projects in the fields of improvised, experimental, as well as
contemporary music.

She performs in solo, duets or trios, either with the voice alone, or
with the accordion and collaborates with many musicians such as JEAN-LUC
GUIONNET in _Mune_, THOMAS TILLY and FABRICE FAVRIOU in _L’échelle de
Mohs_, MICHAEL NICK, SOPHIE AGNEL, ERIC BROCHARD, JÉRÔME NOETINGER,
WILL GUTHRIE…

MICHAEL VORFELD
I started playing music when I was fourteen, after hitch-hiking to the
next bigger city and buying a pair of bongos. Increasing my percussion
set, I had my first groups. After school I worked in a studio for
photography in Cologne. At the same time I got more and more interested
in improvised and experimental music. As a member of the artist group
‘Heinrich Mucken’, founded in 1982, I got involved in site specific art
projects. I studied art in Cologne and Visual Communication in
Kassel(MA). My visual interest shifted towards the use of light in three
dimensional spaces. Now I am living in Berlin, working as musician and
visual artist.

TARWATER
TARWATER is a German [9] music duo comprising Bernd Jestram and Ronald
Lippok. Tarwater have recorded several albums of mostly instrumental
music usually tagged as post-rock [10].
Jestram and Lippok met in an East German punk rock [11] band, and began
recording together even while Lippok recorded with To Rococo Rot [12]
and Jestram worked in his Bleibeil studio. The first Tarwater album
debuted with 1996’s 11/6 12/10 [13], released around the same time first
album came about. Tarwater’s second album, Silur [14], followed in 1998.
The critical praise attendant on the latter earned Tarwater American
distribution, with Animals Suns & Atoms [15] appearing in 2000 and
Dwellers on the Threshold [16] in 2004. In 2005, the album The Needle
Was Traveling [17] appeared. It was their first album for the Morr [18]
label.

BENOIT MOREAU

_45 minutes with short movies by american experimental film maker Stan
Brakhage and the sound device Toyoyoy. A selection of 5 to 6 films
between 13 seconds and 6 minutes (Cat’s Cradle, Mothlight, Dante
Quartet, Eye Myth, The Wold Shadow…) intercut by music that sometimes
overflows the projection or remains silent._
_This formula has been initiated in October 2012 in the programme «
Toile de son » at the Cinéma Cityclub in Pully, Switzerland and was
performed several times in France and Switzerland. _
_Toyoyoy is the given name of a device combining a toy piano,
electronics and stereo diffusion. The original music from this device is
a sequence of improv and composed piece which takes advantage of the
childish looking instrument, storms of ringing bells and provoking
sounds. The heart of the sounds is amplified from the toy piano and
expanded by the possibilities of electronics. Showed around Europe since
2011, this solo concert materialised on a vinyl titled Teasers recorded
in Lausanne in 2013 __(mastering by Antoine Etter and graphism by Julien
Sirjacq)._

GUILLAUME LE BOISSELIER
Guillaume Le Boisselier is a self-taught improviser and composer.
Part of his work could be qualified as some kind of primitive and
instinctive musique concrète. He’s looking for a form of concision
rather than for extended durations, and has a taste for contrasts, from
light to wall shaking sounds.
He uses contact mics and objects, as well as tonal instruments such as
iranian Santur or some asian percussions, but also some electronic DIY
devices and effects to generate a music that ranges from tense, intimate
soundscapes to harsh noise experiments.

He works mainly with contemporary dancers and theatre but can also be
found under several names / collaborations such as BLASTèME!, Hippy
Death Suite, The Flowers of The Five Wounds or La Tierce.
He lives in Bruxelles.

explorer, performing and recording, solo and in a number of inspired
groupings and a variety of genres. Initially a folk-blues guitarist and
singer songwriter his work has diversified to include improvised and
electronic music, live music for silent films, radio art and sound
installations. He is also a music journalist, writing features for
magazines, particularly on Pacific music and musicians, a visual artist,
film and video maker, collector of Hawaiian shirts and appears on more
than 60 records to date.
