Annette Krebs / Jean-Luc Guionnet “Pointe Sèche” CD




Before German sound artist Annette Krebs (1967) began developing her instrument series Konstruktion, she gradually deconstructed her original instrument, the guitar. During this period she collaborated with Keith Rowe, Taku Sugimoto, Toshimaru Nakamura and others. Since 2013, she has been playing assemblages made of highly amplified metal pieces, strings, objects and microphones. These instruments, from Konstruktion #1 to Konstruktion #4 originated from the necessity to realize sound visions that could not be played with traditional instruments and setups. /

Jean-Luc Guionnet (1966) is a French artist whose practice encompasses composition, improvisation, filmmaking and philosophy. Has toured extensively as a solo saxophonist, and has spent the past 20 years performing on historic church organs around the world. For him, music is one of many methods by which to test reality. Approaching his instruments as imperfect vehicles of artificial intelligence, his attentive engagement applies speculative pressure to the expressive limits of their material properties. Running long-term duos with Eric Cordier, Éric La Casa and Seijiro Murayama. /
