Artist Biographies:

"Saxophonist and guitarist in his first hours, Karl Naegelen started composition at the Conservatoire National de Region and at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon. In 2006, his work is greeted by a diploma with honors and a Scholarship by Foundation Salabert. He continues his training at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg and participated in several masterclasses, including Berlin with George Aperghis. He writes for the Orchestra National de Lyon, Ensemble Résonance Contemporaine, Quartuor Pli, the Ensemble Linea and works regularly with the pianist Wilhem Latchoumia. His creations are played in many festivals in France and abroad: Musica in Strasbourg, Encuentros in Buenos aires, music-Action in Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy, the International Piano Festival of Girona and Orleans, Paris, Hamburg, Lyon, Berlin, Davos ... Body size, poetic and theatrical inherent in his compositions brought him also to create the soundtrack to various shows. He co-authored with Johanna Lemarchand "Alice in wonder", show for a dancer and two musicians, following a residency at GRAME. He is currently pursuing studies in Java (Indonesia) on the gamelan music. Fascinated by improvisation and music from outside Europe, Karl Naegelen seeks to preserve in writing the flexibility and spontaneity of the music features of oral tradition, through a constant search for quality sound and stamps."

"Sylvain Darrifourcq was born in 1979 in Orthez (France), he makes his apprenticeship as a classical percussionist. At 15 years Old, he drives himself definitively towards drums and play in his first rock group. He discovers lately jazz music and his meeting with Daniel Humair leads him definitively to a professional pathway.

Following up, he settles down in Toulouse and got into the CNR (academy of music) where he obtains his award. In 2003, he establishes his own group : L' Egotiste Sorel with which he makes his first record " life of Henry Brulard " (Aljama records) in tribute to the masterpiece life of Stendhal.

2004, will be a distinguished mark of the beginning Emile's Parisien Quartet. The group gives rise to a unique sound universe rewarded by the 2009 jazz victories.

Enthusiastic by the temporality questions, space and music breaks, nowadays, he composes today for these trios : IN BED WITH and IN LOVE WITH , he investigates both ambitious projects MILESDAVISQUINTET! and TENDIMITE (duo for percussion and prepared double bass), works beside new generations composers with which he creates musical plays (Le PANTIN, DANS L'ENTRE from Guillaume Hermen...).

2014, time for the DA-Festival creation, event co-managed with the double bassist and Elise Dabrowski singer. Creative music festival supported by Axel Cassel sculptor. This event has the aim to promote multiplicity forms, improvising as well as writing.

His precise, quick and creative drums game, leads him into all music experiments, to be expected also as a wanted sideman. Settle down in Paris since 2008, he has also the opportunity to express his wide range of music together with l'Orchestre Philharmoniques de Radio France and Pierre-André Valade, Joëlle Léandre, Tony Malaby, Michel Portal, Louis Sclavis, Marc Ducret, Andrea Parkins, Akosh S., Benoit Delbecq, Andy Emler, Kit Downes, les portugese and italian collective Porta-Jazz et Jazz-Engine..."

Toma Gouband plays percussions with singing stones, foliage, drums, pin apple, and develops rythms based on proportions, crossing speeds, colors.

"One doesn't even need to 'enter' into the music of Toma Gouband: our ears (and eyes, if we have the pleasure of seeing him at work) are invited, by the spectacular and extraordinary organisation of colors and timbres that make up his dreaming inventive universe. Pieces of flint, natural skins covering a horizontal bass drum, which has scattered upon it tiny bells or blocks of wood, branches and twigs... pebbles rolled on the ground, inverted cymbals collcting thus all sorts of natural resonators... The high-hat cymbals have been replaced by...they've also been replaced by stones! Animated by an interior pulsation made from the superimposition of mysterious cycles, like so many clocks telling life's time in polyrythms that collide and cross over each other, the music of Toma Gouband transcends the idea of an imaginary territory, for it invites us to approach it as we would a social rite or even a ceremony of love. A weaving of the tissues of sound, with wisdom, sio that we feel them as universal, as though they come or to become, for which the visual metaphor could be those traditionel Kuba cloths from Upper Zaire that made of fabrics sewn one on top of the other, to which are added motifs according to an organisation that is rigorous but seems to be governed by rules that have been transmitted only to the initiates who create them. Thus, this is a music initited by the history of the world, unique, free of the constrains imposed by convention and which responds only to its own interior strenght: a summit of the musical art."-Benoît Delbecq

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Cartographie De Rythmes - Vitesses Approchantes [Cartography Of Rhythms - Approximating Speeds] is a startling duo comprised of two drummers following their own respective rhythmic paths.

Toma Gouband's path is littered with stones, plants and traditional drum elements, all leading him into a complex and direct polyphonic world.

Sylvain Darrifourcq's instrumental exploration is rife with machine esthetics and questions on temporality, space and rupture.

In uniting these two singular yet complementary musicians, composer Karl Naegelen brings them to collaborate on a written object of rhythmical invention that stems from extended shifts in interval and phasing."-Umlau
