Artist Biographies

"Guillaume Gargaud (Born in France in 1979) is a composer and improvisational guitarist. He's already released about ten albums and composed many musics for contemporary dance. He lives in Le Havre in France where he also teaches music.

He started playing guitar when he was 15, after he was injured in a road accident and forced to stay home for a year. In 1997, in addition to his cabinetmaking studies where he practiced sculpture, marquetry, restoration of antique furniture and art drawing, he worked on his instrument on his own and performed in different bands. In 1999, after passing his exams he decided to dedicate himself to music and he entered the professional course of IIMA lead by Laurent Rousseau. He then studied composition, musical analysis, jazz, contemporary and improvised music. During his studies he experimented with multiple forms of music (free jazz, bebop...).

In 2003 , he became a permanent member of the artist collective Zwann eï . He composes for performances, installations, sound poetry and movies. He realises visual creations and integrates laptop ( Ableton, Max msp) in his sound research system which was until then made of pedals, analog effects and objects. His implication in the collective will give him the opportunity to discover a new vision of writing and of the interactive relationships connected to picture, body and to literature.

In 2007 he decided to stop his tours to devote himself to his solo music and to get more involved into teaching by creating some improvised music workshops. Many trips, projects, live performances and recording will follow. Work with Loïs Laplace (Cycling 74), Federico Barabino (Buenos aires), Yumi Fujitani (danse butô, Paris), Les Conserveries mémorielles (Québec), Marc Roques (Zooloop, Paris), Sequana Deux (Contemporary Art from Le Havre to Paris "ABRUIT"), Jannick Schou (Denmark), Raphaël Maze and Francois Lebègue ("Light Cone " experimental cinema Paris), Nozal cube (Le Havre), The Future Ethnic Comparative Research Lab. (Paris), La cité de la musique (Paris), Jean Luc Petit,(FR) Sandrine Lascaux (Lecturer, Le Havre University), JP.Gomez, JP Buisson (Le Havre) M.Thouseau and V.Sauve (Paris), Blaise Merino (London), Mangane (Senegal), P.Sigmoon (Cambodia), Jack Wright (US), Raymond Alan Kaczynski, Mike Majkowski,(Berlin), Zachary Darrup (US) .

In 2008, he released his first solo album "Le Lieu" produced by Dirty Demos (UK), then in 2009 two CDs "She" with Utech Records (USA) and "Here" with Kvist Records (USA). And in 2011" Lost Chords" with Dead pilot Records UK."

"Thierry Waziniak is a French drummer & percussionist, and a Geobiologist. He is a graduate of the IACP of Paris (Institute of Art Culture and Perception). His practice of the drums made him cross the path of several instrument pedagogues (Alain Leboucher, Philippe Combelle, Georges Paczynski, Ted Hawke, Steve Phillips).

Thierry Waziniak likes to play free jazz with New York musicians Michaël Attias and John Hebert. Participate with the pianist, cellist Gaël Mevel in the creation of a very rich compositional universe where writing and improvisation mingle, where the listener has a permanent place to take and live. Play with Jacques Di Donato in the "Trio Rives" a minimalist music summoning all the possibilities of memory. Explode in the improvised free rock trio "We Free" with Pascal Bréchet and Colin Mc Kellar. Phrasing between the infinitely large and the infinitely small with drummer Didier Lasserre within the duo "Twigs". Big bander in the large orchestra of 15 improvisers "Friche System II". Play with the images of silent cinema masterpieces by Sjöström, Naruse or Ozu.

But also being on stage with the pleasure of making people sing by over-amplifying the cooking, peeling and cutting of fruits and vegetables for the culinary theater show "Rumors of my hand". Get together alone. Surround the audience with 7 musicians in the group "Le Cercle" and strike crystal glasses or a stationmaster's trumpet before blowing into a bamboo. Tracking the sound and swirls of brushes with Japanese calligrapher Yukako Matsui. Work on the creation of a live tree book with the poet Zéno Bianu and the painter Marc Feld. Accompany the balances of the tightrope walker sculptor Jérôme Aussibal. Seek the way in the voice of the performer Isabelle Duthoit. Bringing together Japan and Italy with pianist Yoko Miura and saxophonist Gianni Mimmo. Recomposing pop music standards with Urbees. Participate in the dismantling of the largest power plant in Europe with the dancers of the "Tangible" company. Infuse into Monk's music with Pascal Bréchet. Pay homage to Chet Baker with saxophonist Steve Potts. Combine acoustics with electronics in the Poza Tym duo with Gwennaëlle Roulleau on machines. Compose and cross the sound barrier with the help of the 2 double basses and the violin of the improbable group iAK. Record the music of drummer Paul Motian, with pianist Masaé Gimbayashi and bassist Fabrice Hélias. Do not worry and stay happy in the DWBH quartet with Isabelle Duthoit, Pascal Bréchet and Franz Hautzinger.

Thierry Waziniak is founder of the label "Intrication" and co-founder of Label Rives. He plays and performs in various festivals (Radio France Festival in Montpellier, Strasbourg Jazz Festival, Blue Banlieues Festival, Mulhouse Festival, Luxembourg Film Festival...). On the radio (France Musique program "A l'Improviste", "Jazz sur le vive", radio creation for France Culture...)

His work with his various formations is hailed by the international press. Thierry Waziniak is also a geobiologist specializing in the harmonization of living spaces."
