• Show Bio for Francois Lebegue
"François Lebègue is a clarinet player who learnt the instrument while discovering very early free jazz music (John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Sun Ra...), jazz-rock (soft-machine, King Crimson, Magma...) and contemporary music. He has always been interested by improvisation and its links with composition. He was a member of the band Engrenage with which he has been searching and exploring and that naturally led him to the creation of l'Atelier de Musique du Havre in 1977.
François Lebègue has realised many creations for the choregrapher Pierre Doussaint. He teaches the clarinet in different music schools. He is also developping contemporary music which is improvised and composed for solos or music ensembles, playing the soprano saxophone, bass and double-bass clarinets. François Lebègue is really involved in broadcasting alive
contemporary music, he is engaged in the broadcasting team of the "Piednu Festival" which takes place every year in Le Havre the first week of April. He is particularly involved in the developpment of the links between the festival and the children and the schools."-Ztext Website (http://co21840.wixsite.com/ztext)

• Show Bio for Guillaume Gargaud
"Guillaume Gargaud (Born in France in 1979) is a composer and improvisational guitarist. He's already released about ten albums and composed many musics for contemporary dance. He lives in Le Havre in France where he also teaches music.
He started playing guitar when he was 15, after he was injured in a road accident and forced to stay home for a year. In 1997, in addition to his cabinetmaking studies where he practiced sculpture, marquetry, restoration of antique furniture and art drawing, he worked on his instrument on his own and performed in different bands. In 1999, after passing his exams he decided to dedicate himself to music and he entered the professional course of IIMA lead by Laurent Rousseau. He then studied composition, musical analysis, jazz, contemporary and improvised music. During his studies he experimented with multiple forms of music (free jazz, bebop...).
In 2003 , he became a permanent member of the artist collective Zwann eï . He composes for performances, installations, sound poetry and movies. He realises visual creations and integrates laptop ( Ableton, Max msp) in his sound research system which was until then made of pedals, analog effects and objects. His implication in the collective will give him the opportunity to discover a new vision of writing and of the interactive relationships connected to picture, body and to literature.
In 2007 he decided to stop his tours to devote himself to his solo music and to get more involved into teaching by creating some improvised music workshops. Many trips, projects, live performances and recording will follow. Work with Loïs Laplace (Cycling 74), Federico Barabino (Buenos aires), Yumi Fujitani (danse butô, Paris), Les Conserveries mémorielles (Québec), Marc Roques (Zooloop, Paris), Sequana Deux (Contemporary Art from Le Havre to Paris "ABRUIT"), Jannick Schou (Denmark), Raphaël Maze and Francois Lebègue ("Light Cone " experimental cinema Paris), Nozal cube (Le Havre), The Future Ethnic Comparative Research Lab.
