LEILA BORDREUIL is a cellist, composer and sound artist. She accesses concepts as diverse as noise, contemporary classical, free jazz, and experimental traditions but adheres to none of them. Her music mixes deep melancholia with harsh noise walls at ear-bleeding levels and was described by the New York Times as “steadily scathing, favoring long and corrosive atonalities.”
JEAN-LUC GUIONNET and SEIJIRO MURAYAMA formed their site-specific duo for alto saxophone and percussion in 2006 and have four releases to date: Le Bruit du Toit (Xing-Wu 2007), Window Dressing (Potlatch 2011), Mishima, Day & Night (Ftarri 2015), and Idiophonic (Ftarri 2018).
“For us, improvisation = in situ. The qualities and unique quantities of a site are the first condition of our music, the switch which obliges us to play this way rather than that. Inevitably, this implies great diversity between one concert and another. Via our moods at a particular moment, (since it is a given that we are prone to moods!), the architecture and acoustics of the site, the attention brought to bear on proceedings by the public and the characteristics of the background noise, the site and the moment pass through the filter of our propensity to play or not play this or that” (Jean-Luc Guionnet)
