"French-Japanese violist Frantz Loriot performs solo as well as in various ensembles by way of improvisation and electronics, crossroads of different musical genres: improvised music, experimental, rock, contemporary music and electronics. He has contributed to multidisciplinary projects related to dance, image and poetry.

Frantz Loriot leads two large ensembles, the European Notebook Large Ensemble, a 10 piece ensemble with Swiss, Japanese, Belgian and Italian musicians with which he released "Urban Furrow" on the Portuguese label Clean Feed (July 2015) and the NYC based 12 piece Systematic Distortion Orchestra in which Frantz reunites some of the finest NYC based improvisers and with which he released "The Assembly" on the NYC based label NowOut recordings.

Beside these projects, Frantz released his debut solo recording "Reflections on an Introspective Path" on the NYC based label Neither/Nor.

For the year 2016, Frantz got invited by the prestigious Météo - Mulhouse Music festival to be artist in residence for a new creation called Der dritte Treffpunkt. For this occasion, Frantz led and reunited a new French-Swiss quartet, Der Verboten, with pianist Cédric Piromalli, saxophonist Antoine Chessex and percussionist Christian Wolfarth.

Active in a number of international collective ensembles, his other personal projects include:

baloni - with Joachim Badenhorst (reeds) & Pascal Niggenkemper (contrabass), Natura Morta - with Sean Ali (contrabass) & Carlo Costa, duos with Jeremiah Cymerman (clarinet), Christoph Erb (saxophones) & Christian Wolfarth (percussions), the project Treffpunkt around international meetings with French pianist Cédric Piromalli.

He appears as a sideman in Joachim Badenhorst's Carate Urio Orchestra, Tobias Meier's Im Wald and Silvan Jeger

In addition to his own projects he has also worked alongside many musicians such as (a.o.), Barre Phillips, Joëlle Léandre, David S.Ware, Anthony Braxton & Walter Thompson Orchestra, Tony Conrad, Emilie Lesbros, Duane Pitre's ED09 ensemble, Ève Risser, Sabir Mateen, Michael Formanek, Andrea Parkins, Franck Vigroux, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Alexei Borisov, Theresa Wong, Ernesto Rodrigues, Hilmar Jensson, Kita Naoki, Simon Nabatov, Steve Swell, Yagi Michiyo, Yasumune Morishige, Mikko Innanen, Christian Weber and many others.

Frantz Loriot studied music in Paris with several professors (Mari Yasuda-Raclot, the Pons brothers, Nicolas Dupin, Ivry Gitlis, Yukari Tate & Pascal Robault) and was brought to improvisation by Régis Huby, Joëlle Léandre, Barre Phillips, and David S. Ware.

He was initiated to soundmassage by its creator, Thierry Madiot.

While living in NYC, he created and curated Ze Couch Series in Brooklyn, NY, from 2009 to 2012. After having lived in Paris and New York City, Frantz Loriot relocated in Zürich (Switzerland)."

"Raphael Loher, pianist / composer. Born 1989, Flawil (CH)

Inspired by the blues pianist champion Jack Dupree, he started playing the piano at the age of 14. Improvising and the attentiveness and creative work associated with it became a central part of his life and music at the moment.

Through his multi-layered piano playing, which is supplemented by synthesizers, prepared piano and Wurlitzer, he is active in a wide variety of projects between improvisation, contemporary jazz, pop and new music.

He played with Gerry Hemingway, John Voirol, Nat Su, Christoph Erb, Manuel Troller, David Meier, Nicolas Stocker and had lessons with Sylvie Courvoisier, Pierre Favre, Frank Gratkowski, Chris Wiesendanger, Florian Hoelscher and Vera Kappeler.

In addition, Raphael Loher has been organizing concerts in the 'Kulturbrauerei' in Lucerne for two years and thus promotes improvised music as an organizer."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Paris is a live album and the recording debut of the international quartet Diaphane. The band's lineup is: Frantz Loriot on viola, Raphael Loher on piano, Carl Ludwig Hübsch on tuba and Carlo Costa on percussion. The group, which is dedicated to improvisation, makes use of a variety of unusual techniques and objects to extend the pallet of their acoustic instruments. The players blend seamlessly into each other's sound worlds creating a dynamic and multifaceted music."-Neither/Nor Records



"Diaphane is a new international collaboration of Frantz Loriot (viola), Raphael Loher (piano), Carl Ludwig Hübsch (tuba) and Carlo Costa (drums). The album contains two improvisations recorded live by Jean-Marc Foussat at Café de Paris in Paris on November 23rd, 2019. Maybe Loher is the most less-known musician from this quartet. He is a young Swiss pianist and composer known for his work with Swiss units Kali Trio and Sekhmet. He prefers to work in projects that cross borders between modern classic, alternative rock and improvised music. I guess Loriot is the initiator behind this new collaboration. He is a Swiss-based improviser working on both sides of the Atlantic. In New York, he works mainly with musicians associated with Neither/Nor, like Italian drummer Carlo Costa. The CD has an extended 36-minute improvisation. They practise group improvisation in a proper and optimal sense. Each performer is equally tuned in and involved in their collective communication. A very 'democratic' affair. They make use of extended techniques that leads up to a wide range of sounds and colours. It is often clear who is doing what, but sometimes this isn't easy to identify. This sometimes evokes the experience of the music is one organic whole, one undivided movement where it is absolutely not relevant anymore to register who is doing what. Although the pleasure of listening to this (and any) kind of improvisation is also to experience the high communicative level reached, which certainly counts for this excellent recording. The vibrant improvisations continue in a very natural flow and are very lively. Fragile and full of details on the one hand, very focused and together on the other. There is much to be observed and to be enjoyed in these multi-coloured and strongly interconnected improvisations. A joy!"-DM, Vital Weekly
