Artist Biographies:

"Dan Warburton was born in 1963 in Rochdale, England. He began studying violin at the age of 7, and piano four years later. With a North West Arts scholarship, he studied violin, piano, and composition (classes of Petr Eben and Dorothy Pilling) at the Royal Northern College of Music Junior School, Manchester. He also worked with composer Derek Bourgeois and percussionist Ian Wright at the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, whose musicians created "Music for Ten Percussionists" in 1980.

In 1981 he received a scholarship (Entrance Scholarship) to study music at Gonville and Caius College Cambridge, where he worked with Robin Holloway. His composition "I Will Not Lose Control", written for Peter Wiegold and Gemini, won the North West Young Composers Competition in 1982 and was performed throughout the North of England. In 1984, his music for "The Merry Wives of Windsor" (Shakespeare) won the Best Music Award at the National Student Drama Festival, at the end of a tour in five European countries with the Cambridge European Theater group.

He graduated with First Class Honors in 1984, earning him a Senior Scholarship in Caius to prepare his Master of Philosophy (Musical Composition), which he obtained in 1985. The same year he was awarded the prestigious Harkness Fellowship of the Commonwealth Fund of New York, which allows him to prepare his Doctor of Philosophy (Musical Composition) at the Eastman School of Music, Rochester, New York, from 1986 to 1987, where he works with Robert Morris, Warren Benson and Allan Schindler. In 1986, in New York City, he worked with Steve Reich on an analysis of his "Sextet" for his doctoral thesis.

In 1987, "Modern Dreams / Ancient Nightmares", his poetry / music / video collaboration with Fred Goodwin, went to Riverside Studios, Hammersmith. Warburton obtained his doctorate in 1987 and moved to Paris in 1988, where he worked as a radio presenter, translator (IRCAM, Radio France) and professor at the IACP (Institute Art Culture Perception). In 1992 he won the Lili Boulanger International Prize for Composition (University of Boston), for his compositions "Small Animals", "Littoral" and "New Mexico Disco Project". In 1996, his ballet "Crime Caramel" with The Mireille Barlet Company shot in several cities in the south of France. He is a reporter for The Wire (London), Signal To Noise (USA) and for the internet magazine and has written songs for the Newt Hinton Ensemble in The Netherlands, as well as The Composers Ensemble ("Splinters for Misha", created in Dartington, where Warburton works as Affiliate Lecturer in Music since 2005), and soprano Ann Liebeck ("Four Beckett Songs", premiered at Wigmore Hall, London, 1997). Dan Warburton also plays keyboards with the Sons Traques and Return of the New Thing groups (albums on Leo, Ayler and Not Two). He also plays with Bruno Meillier (album "Cho", SMI NM 212) in duo "Rats" with Edward Perraud (Textile, Vynile Series 08, LP), in trio with Jac Berrocal and Aki Onda, in the group Po-Go with Pascal Battus, Frederic Blondy, Bertrand Gauguet."

"Jean-Luc Guionnet is an elusive figure. A Parisian artist active in many fields (music, visual arts, cinema), he has mostly worked in electro-acoustics but also has a career in free improvisation, playing alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, church organ, and piano. He has collaborated with Éric La Casa, Éric Cordier, and André Almuro on tape music. His main free improv and jazz projects include Hubbub, Schams, Return of the New Thing, and the Joe Rosenberg quintet.

Guionnet made scientific studies before shifting to fine arts. He studied musique concrete under Iannis Xenakis and Michel Zbar, but also pursued studies in philosophy (esthetics) with Geneviève Clancy. His first works date from the late '80s and are mostly collaborations with filmmaker André Almuro (some have been issued by Ground Fault). Then came a lasting partnership with electro-acousticians Éric Cordier and Éric La Casa. Together they wrote the series "Afflux." Guionnet also produces the Ateliers de Création Radiophoniques ("creative radio workshops") for France Culture. His eclecticism has kept him at bay of recognition -- because to the eye of the press it strips him from some credibility and because running careers in philosophy (he was co-director for the review Terre des Signes from 1993 to 1996), painting (he exhibited from 1992 to 1997), and music simultaneously tends to be time-consuming.

The release of an eponymous CD by Dan Warburton's free jazz quartet Return of the New Thing in 1999 on the respected label Leo Records introduced Guionnet to a wider audience. Since then his activities as an improviser have constantly stretched toward the fringes of experimentalism. His participation in the French-Swiss group Hubbub and his duo with guitarist Olivier Benoit (&Un, 2002) follow the school of Berlin reductionism."

"Edward Perraud born in Nantes in 1971

Percussionist, Drummer, composer, improviser and researcher.

He began playing guitar at the age of eight, then learned the trombone and classical percussion at the CNR of Rennes. After a master's degree in musicology at the University of Rennes, he joined the IRCAM doctoral program in 1996 with Hugues Dufour where he obtained a DEA (EHESS / ENS / IRCAM). He entered the CNSM of Paris in the class of Michael Levinas the same year where he obtains in 1998 a 1st prize of musical analysis.

Classical music, contemporary music, jazz (Daniel Humair for 3 years at the CNSM in Paris), Indian (he studied with Patrick Moutal and Ramon Lopez at the CNSM and then Calcutta with Biplab Battacharia at the tablas) Gilles Léothaud in ethnomusicology at the CNSM) and free improvisation, profoundly mark his percussionist play.

He is also a member of the improvised "Hubbub" ensemble with Frederic Blondy, Jean Sébastien Mariage, Bertrand Denzler and Jean-luc Guionnet since 1999. He also founds the duo BIG with his alter ego Frederick Galiay (electric bass) The duo bass / drums under multiple facets: Big drum & bass, Big world, Big Pop.

There are now fifty records on numerous labels worldwide (Germany, USA, Portugal, England, Switzerland, etc ...). He created his own label in 2005 (Quark-records) which today has more than twenty references. In 2008, he founded a duet with the singer Elise Caron: "Bitter Sweets" which explores all forms of improvisation possible in the most varied styles. In 2011, he formed his group: "Synaesthetic Trip" with Benoit Delbecq, Bart Maris and Arnault Cuisinier, his first group as a leader who will be unanimously acclaimed by critics. A second album of his quartet will be released in 2015.

For more than 20 years he has played with many European and American musicians such as Tony Malaby, Bruno Chevillon, Olivier Benoit, Sylvain Kassap, Yves Robert, Thomas de Pourquery (Supersonic), Beniat Achiary, Fred Frith, Paul Rogers, Donnet, Joelle Leandre, John Edwards, Johannes Bauer, Louis Sclavis, Claude Tchamitchian, Bernard Lubat, Michel Portal, Vincent Courtois, Daunik Lazro, Marc Helias, Joe Rosenberg, Project The Bridge by Alexandre Pierrepont which promotes the exchange between American and French musicians.

Das Kapital (Daniel Erdmann, Hasse Poulsen, Edward Perraud) founded in 2001 (Concerts in Russia, Mexico, Honduras, Salavador, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark, Germany ...), which won the prize for the best Jazz record of 2011 in Germany (Preiss der deutsche Kritik) with his homage to composer Hanns Eisler.

He obtains with Thomas de Pourquery Supersonic as drummer and for his label Quarkrecords the price of the disc of jazz of the year 2014 to the victories of the music.

In autumn 2014 he was called by the actor Philippe Torreton with whom they duet the show "Mec" in tribute to Allain Leprest.

Supporting self-giving, he claims a journey away from the chapels where everything must be possible. He has been a photographer and has been exhibiting for several years (Caen, Tours, Nantes ...)"
