Artist Biographies:

"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."

"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."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Since 2011, HIPPIE DIKTAT has been touring on the alternative scene all around Europe. For its third album " Gran Sasso ", the trio stripped down the musical material to its most minimal expression and dug the simplest matter to find what's beyond. The overwhelming sound of the band is built on the persistent use of raw and primitive rhythms, and a massive texture made out of amplified baritone saxophone and electric baritone guitar.
