Éric Cordier

Born in 1963, Composer, improviser…
As an improviser, he plays a singular instrument : hurdy-gurdy in connexion with electronic processors. In electronic music, he plays solos under the name of NOL. He has studied fine arts and builds projects between fine arts and music : creating sound environments (1990-1998), sound-sculptures with Denis Tricot (Orgue de Bois/ Wooden Organ) & Jean-Luc Guionnet (Synapses) and performance/action/body art focusing on speaking and interface human / machine, keeping the connection with aktionism.
About tape music composition Eric Cordier, close to “musique concrète”, has built a musical style in which the sound texture is always used in the respect of his own specificities, limiting the impact of the sound treatments. Each musical piece is composed around a strong concept or a deep thematic, according to questions of society, memory etc.

Rui Costa

Rui Costa began his public activity as a sound artist in 1997. In 1998 he started a close collaboration with the Spanish musician Iñaki Ríos inside the project ja_dijiste, which covers several areas of common interests as sound art, free improvisation and video creation, using software-based (max/msp, etc.) composition & improvisation techniques and developing several conceptual projects such as the intermedia work „Nodar”, presented in 2002 at the Music Ex Machina festival in Bilbao, Spain.

Yannick Dauby

Born 1974 in Southern France, lives and works in Taiwan since 2007.

His sound practice was initiated while studying tape music (musique concrète in French) at Cirm, Nice (France): discovery of the physicality of the magnetic tape, vertigo-inducing analog synthesis and acousmatic pleasures. However it's outdoor that things really started. He began working with field recordings in 1998 during a travel in a distant country, capturing fragments of environments, urban situations, animal signals and unusual acoustic phenomenas. Those are his favourite materials, sometimes published like they are as phonographies, or providing some montage elements for some audio documentaries or musical compositions.

Helena Gough

Helena Gough is an English composer living in the Portuguese island of Madeira.

Her work initially focused upon the collection and manipulation of 'real-world' sound material and the exploration of its abstract properties. Occasional deviations into synthetic and instrumental sources are now developing into more prominent ingredients. Each new sound-space is created by taking everything possible from the tiniest element, working to make something from nearly nothing. This reduction in means yields a density and richness of results.

John Grzinich

Since the early 1990s I have explored various approaches to sound generation, recording and production. My techniques range from the construction of original instrument devices and the capture of acoustic phenomenon through environmental field recordings to digital multi-tracking and manipulation. The resulting compositions are often studies in extended evolutionary permutations of a selected set of sound sources. These sources can concentrate on different properties of sound instigation and emination that can range from the textural animation of inanimate objects or an open-air mechanical noise field to overtone resonations from a set of wires stretched across a room.

Cathy Heyden

At age 2 she was familiar with Coltrane and the Rolling Stones. At 6 she discovered Artaud, followed by Ginsberg.
"Pfff. Only men", she said to herself while reading 'On the road' and dropped out of musicology and history of music for the same reason.
Eventually she believes something else is possible, and then... Mesa of the Lost women, Blimey !, Allochtone, Maelström, Grind the Gears, Faust, Stadtfischflex, Urban Sax, duo with Rogier Smal, Claude Parle, Erik Minkkinen and many others.

Francisco López

[…] Much against a widespread current trend in sound art and the customary standard in nature recordings, I believe in the possibility of a profound, pure, 'blind' listening of sounds, freed (as much as possible) of procedural, contextual or intentional levels of reference. What is more important, I conceive this as an ideal form of transcendental listening that doesn't denies all what is outside the sounds but explores and affirms all what is inside them. This purist, absolute conception is an attempt at fighting against the dissipation of this inner world. […]

François Martig

François Martig scrutinize the landscape as an operator attemptive to naturalness and the resurgence of a nomadic and invasive nature, seldom to be cut down. Through his movies, sound pieces and installations, he neutralises the dualities that oppose natural and artificial, pure and impure, local and exotic, so as to question the politics, economics, aesthetics and memories that secretly determine our environment.

pali meursault

[…] a music that is not yet definite, pre-determined, but that is only possible, through our perception of an undetermined environment, and ponctual, as it happens only when it matches its coincidental emotion. Then, it is not possible to mistake music with its products, knowledges and phenomenons: the technique and the langage, the concert and the home-listening are replaced into their musical becoming, maybe as well as the reality itself, wherein compressors sings to the careful ears […]

Emmanuel Mieville

He self-taught music and also studied at the Groupe de Recherches Musicale. His work as a sound engineer inclined him towards the sound matter and its malleable evolutions. He composes concrète music and phonographies wherein the listener is confronted to decontextualisation and memories of sound, in order to smear his musical perception of nature.

Murmer (Patrick McGinley)

American born sound and performance artist who has lived and worked in europe since 1996. he has composed works for several theatre performances, including the works of his own company, as well as performing live soundworks for others. in 2002 he co-founded framework, an organisation that produces a weekly radio show on london's resonance fm. his work concentrates on the framing of sounds from our environment which normally pass through our ears unnoticed and unremarked, but which out of context become unrecognisable, alien and extraordinary: crackling charcoal, a squeaking escalator, a buzzing insect, or one’s own breath.

Frédéric Nogray

Frédéric Nogray is a self-taught composer and musician, attemptive to sound for its intrinsic qualities as a vibratory phenomenon, to its diffusion into space and the diversity of our perceptions. He has been using a variety of electronic and electroacoustic instruments as well as field recording techniques for live performances, records, installations and cross-disciplinary collabortations.

Since 2005 his musical approach went more instrumental with the use of crystal singing bowls (actually misappropriated industrial crucibles), with which he creates a minimal music that the listener has toapprehend within the depths of sculpted sonic materia. Lastly, he is a founding member, with Stéphane Rives, of the electronic/electroacoustic duo «The Imaginary Soundscapes», which was born in Beirut and is very much influenced by that city and its history.

Michael Northam

my work has grown from a fifteen year evolution of activities focused on the discovery, observation and experience of unique organically and inorganically driven sound phenomena. […] the discoveries are later woven and worked intuitively to create non referential sound works that test and exercise aural and temporal perception—discovering ways to suspend time and enfold sound.

Philippe Petitgenêt

Coming out of the Arts Décoratifs school in Strasbourg in 2002, Philippe Petitgenêt works with sound as a creator and technician.
His work comes out as sound installations, small publications or radio pieces, with a special care for the relation between sound and image.
As a wandering listener, he goes as much as he can looking for new magnetic landscapes. He builts his improvisations as travels into ambient sound and sonic trekking.

Maksims Shentelevs

(my-ym) - architect, phonographer and sound artist based in Riga, Latvia. Active in field recording since 2002. Focusing on sound gathering as non intervention policy for observation of structural models in nature. Usually field studies such as field-mix, soundscape mapping, sound-gathering become basic material for following work in studio. In his field research mainly interested in biotopes referring habitats of insects and small creatures, self-referent and macro scale structures. Recently involves self-made acoustic and electroacoustic instruments and sound objects as tools for mutual discourse with nature. In 2007 initiated sound impromptu collective "bernu rits" - "children morning".

Thomas Tilly(Tô)

Artist-composer and self-taught musician, Thomas Tilly uses the microphone as his main instrument of work. In 2001 he creates Tô, a solo project of concrete music focusing on environmental sounds and found-objects manipulations. In this view, the composition and publication on disc of such sound material have to be considered as a sonic synthesis of a place during a certain periode of time. (N.B. this method requires to stay, observe and study the architectural aspects of the place in order to formulate a personal view and interpretation of it). The knowledge of Thomas Tilly is also used for sound-installations allowing to develop and enlarge the logic of specific datas collected in a place – via various systems of triggering/diffusion in situ.

Duncan Whitley

Duncan Whitley practices as a visual artist and sound recordist. His creative output ranges from project-specific field recording archives, to multi-channel sound work, film and video, and site-responsive sound installations.
As an artist working with both musical and 'non-musical' sound, he is fundamentally concerned with themes of acoustic communication – language mediated in and through sound – and the experience of visual and acoustic space. His approach to working with sound is at once forensic and poetic, marked by both rigorous methodology and a delicate, subtle aesthetic language.
