"COAX Collective's Artistic Director, Antoine Viard develops a singular saxophone practical based on the sound and its componants. Electric or acoustic, he enforces his rough/free playing with bands like Hippie Diktat, Chameleo Vulgaris, Uns, in his solo project Tumulus or in improvising collaborations with Peter Brötzmann, Eve Risser, Frederick Galiay, Guillaume Orty..."

"Throughout hundreds of performances all around Europe on the experimental, improvised music and alternative rock scenes, Julien Chamla developed a unique vocabulary focused on tension, roughness and repetition. Eager to unlearn and to strip down the musical matter, his work is now mainly connected to primitive, trance and ritualistic music. Amongst others, he's involved in the bands Tripes, Helved Rüm, Ritual Extra, Aquaserge, and many dance and circus projects."

"Richard Comte is focused on the sonic possibilities of the guitar, drawing timeless spaces, from loud immersive drones to spacious resonances bordering on silence itself. He played with improvisers Simon H. Fell, Mark Sanders, Shabaka Hutchings, Mars Williams, Jim Black, and he interpreted contemporary music pieces from Michael Pissaro, Eliane Radigue, Fausto Romitelli. He works also in the field of contemporary dance, theater and visual arts. In 2017 he founded Nunc., a label dedicated to liberate and open music."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Since 2011, HIPPIE DIKTAT has been rocking its Trance Noise on European alternative scenes. The repetitive rhythms inherited from a Steve Reich dig deep into the granite and the impressive sound mass -worthy of Sunn O)))- releases an infinite solar space.

Material sculptures, sound pyrography, the music of Hippie Diktat penetrates bodies and disconnects souls. Distortions of the perceptions of time and spaces, phonic immersions, infernal repetitions plunge the listener into a solid, saturated atmosphere.

8 years of collective work, 3 albums and more than 150 concerts in Belgium, Spain, Germany, Holland, Poland, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Russia, Sweden, Denmark and France... have enabled the trio to shape an essential and universal music."
