Artist Biographies

"Camille Emaille is a French percussionist born in 1993 in Nice. She is studying at the Musik-Akademie of Basel (Switzerland) with Christian Dierstein on contemporary music and with Fred Frith on free improvisation. She considers music a part of everything, part of everyday life. That's why she began to improvise, to feel music more as a flux, as something which is already here, something that we (the musician and the audience) just jump into... She works with many artists from varying fields, such as video, muppet theatre, shadow theater with the show Divines Bovines and plays in the musical projects Oxke Fixu (duo with clarinet), Defibrillator (electronic, e-trombone, perc.) and Ratax (d-b., cl., perc.). She used to organize and play in " wild " events, happenings that took place in unusual locations such as closed tunnels, abandoned hospitals, highway bridges, old synagogues (festival Myosotis); events where people go without any knowledge of what will transpire...

She worked during workshops and master classes with Lee Quan Ninh, John Butcher, Benat Achiary, Roscoe Mitchel, Gunter Baby Sommer et Zina Parkins. She played with Fred Frith, Fritz Hauser and William Winant among others.

In fond of persian music, she studies tombak with Pedram Khavarzamini and tabla with Sankar Chowdhury as well as traditionnal music from midle est. With davul/tapan (turkish or bulgarian instrument) in Duna Orkestar (balkanic brass band) or tombak, daf and req with Koâni (trio with hurdy gurdy, harmonica and percussions) she played concerts in France, Switzerland, Germany and Turkey."
