Ensemble Hodos: Lifework : A Unity - Ensemble Hodos plays Philip Corner (Vol. 1) (Umlaut Records)

Label: Umlaut Records    
Released in: France    


"Created in 2008 by Pierre-Antoine Badaroux and Sebastien Beliah, Ensemble Hodos plays the music of composers who give each musician an important share of responsibility and freedom. Open scores, graphic scores, indeterminate pieces, or pieces using chance or improvisation, are the core of the ensemble's repertoire. Their approach has three axes: collective work on the appropriation of pieces, close collaborations with composers, and meetings of musicians from various musical backgrounds"-Umlaut



"Pierre-Antoine Badaroux is a Paris-based alto saxophone player, composer and producer. He is working as a freelance composer since 2006, focusing on relations between sound, notation and the role of the musician in an ensemble. In 2008 he became an active member of record label and collective Umlaut Records, producing his own albums from the deconstructed Bebop of Peeping Tom to the original Composition No. 6, to a historical project on arrangers of Swing music with Umlaut Big Band that he leads, to the improvised music of r.mutt."

"After having studied classical music with Jacques Di Donato, Joris Rühl oriented himself towards contemporary music, written, improvised and jazz, with a predilection for projects blurring the borders between these different labels. He plays with contemporary music ensembles like L'Instant Donné or Hiatus, with jazz ensembles like TØRN, Hübsch 8, Simon Rummel Ensemble and with the experimental music ensembles ONCEIM and Spat' Sonore. He also improvises with, among many others, Michel Doneda, Thierry Madiot, Isabelle Duthoît, Eve Risser, Antez. His discography includes discs released under the labels Neos Jazz, Satelita, OBS and Umlaut Records. Beside this activity of musician, he also works on films and experimental videos."
