Hippolyte Hentgen - Artwork

Thomas a 14 ans, il gratte les trois cordes d'une vieille guitare oubliée.
Virus insidieux. Il s'abandonne dans de longues mélodies monocordes, répétitives, et n'en voit plus la fin. Après quelques tournées avec divers groupes, Thomas n'hésite pas. Il sera guitariste. A 21 ans, il intègre Pro Musica, formation du Thor, dans le Vaucluse, et décroche trois ans après un D.E.M en musiques actuelles.
"Step across the border", le documentaire sur le guitariste Fred Frith, est une révélation. Il a 22 ans, il reconnaît sa route : les musiques de traverse, le détournement ludique de l'instrument (utilisation d'objets saugrenus, de piezzos, de gadgets plus ou moins électroniques) et l'exploration tous azimuts.
Depuis, navigation grand large. En solitaire, en duo, dans les archipels du cirque, de la danse, de l'image, du théâtre. L'art n'a pas de frontières, ça tombe bien, sa musique non plus.
Thomas dialogue, échange, partage, construit avec nombre de musiciens, circassiens, danseurs, cinéastes, plasticiens, écrivains, metteurs en scène et comédiens. Autant de nomades complices qui enrichissent son voyage. Et confortent son cap. 

Laurent Estoppey divides his life between the United States and Switzerland. As a saxophonist, Estoppey plays in orchestras, founds many chamber music projects, performs many compositions created for him, but is also very involved in the improvised music scene. As a composer, he writes for concerts, sound installations, as well as movies (video art and documentaries). His influences come from the written musics of the 20th and 21st centuries (minimalism and spectralism, among others), the popular music of today (hip-hop, electro, rock) and increasingly the arts and contemporary movements (visual art, dance, literature…)

Gergely SUTO
Gergely Suto was born in Budapest, Hungary. He is a classical clarinetist and has been working as an orchestra musician ever since his studies. His steady job for the last 15 years has been with Porto Symphonic Orchestra, in Rem Koolhas' smashing Casa da Musica.
Aside from his classical music activities Gergely has always been keen on free and experimental musical expression. After some futile attempts on jazz improvisation he got significantly more excited about the arrival on the market of the Roland VS-880 and its likes: finally you could make a home music production with instruments without a jack!
Gergely's sporadic and uneven creative activities keep showing this dilemma to choose between production and performance. As a creative musician his main instrument is the computer and he is constantly looking for new and better ways to perform live with it. He used to design his own control tools with Reaktor and later with Max for Live. He likes to perform live for theater and dance productions but sometimes also plays concert-like, along with other musicians. He is proud about the fact that once in the past, he was the electronic musician in "Cobra" with John Zorn.

Andrew Weathers is a composer and improviser from North Carolina currently based in Oakland, CA. His work blurs composition, improvisation, and appropriation, taking elements from American folk, experimental, and punk traditions. In addition to his own work, he records and performs as a part of Parties, Tethers, Talk More, Yung100, and Full Moon Sun Burn Band and helps run Full Spectrum Records. He has collaborated with Christopher Willits, Squadda B, Tatsuya Nakatani, Lukas Ligeti, Laurent Estoppey, and Hal McGee. In the course of his studies, Weathers has studied under Fred Frith, Roscoe Mitchell, John Bischoff, Maggi Payne, Eugene Chadbourne, Mark Engebretson, and Alejandro Rutty.
