Artist Biographies:

"After studying music in conservatories in Nancy and Lyon, Violaine Gestalder perfected with Vincent David at the conservatory of Versailles until 2008.

Saxophonist on the lookout for musical discoveries, Violaine is part of a polymorphic approach: revisiting the classical repertoires in chamber music thanks to the transcription, she also solicits the creation with the Résonance 6 ensemble and the Neva saxophone quartet.

She explores the field of free improvisation at the CNSMDP in the class of Alexandros Markeas and Vincent Lê Quang, (prize obtained in 2012), as well as in the groups Lezo and Echafaudages.

As a soloist, she is invited to perform with orchestras in formations such as OSLN and GAM.

After teaching her instrument for nearly 10 years in the Vosges then Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy, she joined the teaching training department of the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris and obtained in 2012 her certificate of Proficiency in teaching duties, a position she occupies this year at the CRR Nancy."

"Louis-Michel Marion"

"After starting as a rock / blues bassist and studying speech therapy and language sciences, he studied bass with Jean-François Jenny-Clark and Pierre Hellouin. He takes great musical lessons by playing alongside Jacques Di Donato, Vinko Globokar, Joe McPhee, Steve Potts, Paul Rogers, Annick Nozati, Keith Rowe, Malcolm Goldstein, Le Quan Ninh (non exhaustive list).

He approaches his instrument without a priori, simply as a sound generator. His work of improvisation feeds on listening to musicians such as Joëlle Léandre, G. Scelsi, Barre Phillips, Daunik Lazro, I. Xenakis, S. Sciarrino and Morton Feldman (non exhaustive list).

"As comfortable in the contemporary field as in the improvisation - still a similarity with Joëlle Léandre, finely combining the play with the bow and the pizzicato, Marion takes us to countries of a poetic quite joyous And repetitive at will. "Serge Perrot / Improjazz

"Marion affirms her desire to pull ropes out of her double bass all the life they contain, until the last breath. Arco, he becomes the receiver, then the transmitter of vibrations that occupy the space to draw a sonorous, moving and palpable material, so much his work on the resonances, the grain and the colors allows each one To feel it physically. Like a sculpture of the invisible. We do not listen to this music, we receive it in the hollow of the stomach, throbbing and dark, animated by a continuous movement, such as the choreography of a struggle between internal forces whose tension never weakens; She opened the doors of an unknown attracting and disturbing in equal proportions. "Denis Desassis / Citizen Jazz

For twenty years, he has devoted himself mainly to improvisation in ensembles of all sizes, from duet to 15tet (notably with Systme Friche / Jacques DiDonato) to a continuing relationship with choreographer Aurore Gruel (duet Hay Que Caminar) as well as the exploration of solo double bass parts (Scelsi, Scodanibbio, Donatoni, Bussotti, Goldstein ...). Fascinated by the music of Eliane Radigue, he met her in 2104 and created "Occam Océan XIX" for five-string bass, "Occam River V" for double bass and bass clarinet with Carol Robinson (Music Festival Démesurées in November 2014) "Occam Hexa III" (Cartier Foundation, July 2016).

Regularly invited by the Ensemble Ultim'Asonata - specializing in contemporary music, he is also a member of the group Azéotropes (contemporary jazz, improvisation) around the pianist composer Loris Binot.In 2009, he founded the Nocturnal Archipelago, a string and percussion ensemble dedicated to music on the margins of improvisation and open writing, for which he composed.

Sensitive to architecture, the spatial and acoustic environment, he particularly likes to plan and organize musical projects in unconventional places.Always leaving for interdisciplinary meetings, he participated in numerous choreographic, theatrical or other creations ... and has been closely interested in the viola da gamba for a few years.

LM Marion is regularly asked to conduct improvisation workshops by conservatories, music schools or in connection with festivals (Nancy, Metz, Lille, Montreuil, Malzéville, Troyes, Reims, Saint Dié, CNFPT of Nancy, CEFEDEM Of Lorraine, CCAM-National Scene of Vandoeuvre les Nancy, University of Reims-Champagne Ardenne, Conservatory of Saint-Die of the Vosges, CRR of Nancy ...).

His research has led him to take part in numerous theatrical, choreographic, cinematographic and radio creations (France Musique: "Les contes du jour et du nuit", "Une unevisvis", "Alla Breve"),

Collaborations with Cie Ormone / Aurore Gruel, Cie Echo / Christine Koetzel, Mille Faille / Marie Cambois Co., Li-Luo Cie / Camille Mutel, Cie In Freech ..., Cie Inouïe / Thierry Balasse / Maud Contini, Cie Distortion / Hervé Birolini, readings with Michaël Glück (Festival Poema)

Among his recent creations:

- "Mnemoliths" composition for the Nocturnal Archipelago, creation at the Music Action 2013 festival (CCAM-National Scene of Vandœuvre les Nancy)- "Fantaisie en Si", by Françoise Toullec, commissioned by Radio France for the program Alla Breve- "Nine Days" Cie ENZ at the Festival Exp-Edition / Biennale de la danse en Lorraine- "Riverrun" (around Finnegans Wake by James Joyce), "If any" and "Two by two" with Maud Contini (Cie Temporal)

Some of his collaborations include: Daunik Lazro, Jacques Di Donato, Xavier Charles, Camel Zekri, Dominique Regef, Malcolm Goldstein, Fran¨oise Toullec, Mimi Lorenzini, Steve Potts, Annick Nozati, Eliane Radigue, Matthias Kaul, Thierry Madiot, Fabrice Villard, Matthias Pontevia Jean-Luc Petit, Eric Brochard, Jean-Marc Montera, Dominique Rˇpˇcaud, Claude Tchamitchian, Eric Echampard, Joe Mc Phee, Laurent Dailleau, Sophie Agnel, Fabrice Charles, Laurent Charles, Jˇr™me Bourdellon, David Chiesa, Jim Denley, Keith Rowe, Philippe Berger, Hervˇ Birolini, Aurore Gruel, Antoine Arlot, Carol Robinson, Hˇl¸ne Breschand..."
