"Joachim Florent was born in 1979 in Schaerbeek - Belgium. An artist with multiple interests, Joachim studied at the ENM of Villeurbanne alongside scientific studies, then at the CNSM in Paris in the jazz department.

A singular musician, he is the bassist of the Jean Louis trio with Aymeric Avice and Francesco Pastacaldi. He also plays with Imperial Quartet and the Imperial Company. Together with Benjamin Flament, he founded MetaL-O-PHoNe and Radiation10, the driving elements of the coax collective. His taste for adventure and renewal led him to collaborate with Finnish musicians such as Aki Rissanen, mandingues in the imperial pulsar or the contemporary music of the bela quartet. Recently installed in Nantes, Joachim works there alongside the singer Maud Trutet.

In 2007, he won the 1st prize for the defense contest, and also the first 2 group prizes (Radiation10 and Jean Louis). Whether playing acoustically or transcending the bass with amplification, he is regularly invited to perform solo (Paris Bass 2008, Le Mans Europa Jazz 2012) and participates with the garden trio in the music of the last Coline Serreau's film - local solutions for a global mess."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Gathered at the end of 2016 by Clément Janinet, this quartet brings together four improvising musicians who have been working together for the past ten years in various ensembles. (Radiation 10, Garden Trio, Hugues Mayot Quartet ......)

Clément Janinet composes the music of the quartet inspired by the lyricism of the free jazz melodies of the 60s (Ornette Coleman, Phoraoh Sanders ...) and the timbral and rhythmic textures of repetitive music (Steve Reich, Philip Glass, John Adams ...).

The first quartet was premiered at the Théâtre de Verdure in Montceau-Ragny in June 2016 around the works of Antonin Artaud, whose words were brought by the comedian David Rougerie.

The quartet recorded its first album "Ornette Under the Repetitive Skys" in June 2017 at the Junot studio and invited guitarist Gilles Coronado and cellist Mario Boisseau for the occasion. This disc will appear on the Gigantorium Label in February 2018."-Republic of Jazz Blogspot (translated by Google)
