For prolific composer, improviser and multi-instrumentalist Bruno Duplant (1968) composing, improvising and playing music is similar to imagining, creating, and sometimes decomposing new spaces/realities and new entities. But it is also a reflection on memory, not the historic one, but memories of things, spaces and moments. His music – strongly inspired by writings of Gaston Bachelard and Francis Ponge, and by composers such as Cage, Luc Ferrari, Eliane Radigue or Rolf Julius – is imbued with sweet melancholy. For some time, his photographic practice and poetry join his musical practice – in many crossings, for many exchanges.
French artist and musician FrÃ©dÃ©ric Tentelier (1981) creates musical theater performances and sound installations. He has been making music that is intended to confront with particular spaces and time within a theatrical set. The music he composes – with field recordings, Fender Rhodes, organs, banjos or objects – is recorded in specific spaces from graphic scores, topographic maps, harmonic translations or improvisations. He considers field recordings as harmonic and musical materials but also as temporal materials structuring musical forms.
