Acousmatic black metal it’s our self-defined musical genre, a kind of conception about the sound experience, related to the phylosophy of Pythagoras of Samos.

The acousmatic art, according to Pierre Schaeffer “is said to be derived from akousmatikoi, the outer circle of Pythagora’s disciples who only heard their teacher speaking from behind a veil. In a similar way, one hears acousmatic music from behind the ‘veil’ of loudspeakers, without seeing the source of the sound”.

Inspired by the Russolo‘s researches in his black Art of Noise, the sound spatialization studies of Karlheinz Stockhausen and his music theory, and by Edgar Varese‘s studies and his vision of “sound as living matter“.

Music for loudspeakers and audience; based on atonal music and non-idiomatic improvisation principles, applied to a radical black metal approach, linked to authors such as Abruptum, Bathory, Moevot, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost and other pioneers in this music genre, designed in acousmatic key, for an immersive deep listening experience in the sound projection.

Le Quan Ninh:
Is a French percussionist active in contemporary music and free improvisation. He began studying piano at the age of5, but turned towards percussion as a teenager. When he was 16, he entered the National Conservatory in Versailles. During this time he discovered free jazz. After graduating, he taught percussion for 3 years at a conservatory in Bondy, France while performing with contemporary music, dance, and theater groups often using self-taught techniques and found objects in his improvisation.

His discography counts about 40 CD on european and north american labels.

Jason Van Gulick:
One of the most inventive drummers on the contemporary music scene, he processes the sounds of his drum set in real time providing an explosive mixture of wild rhythms and abstract soundscapes. He has developed his artistic approach in the confrontation between the acoustic character of his chosen instrument and amplification via contact and ambient microphones, exploring architectural possibilities through diffusion in resonant spaces. Over the last twenty years he has emerged from an eclectic musical background: from beginnings in hardcore, extreme rock and post-metal and then jazz and improvisation, finding his place in noise and modern composition. He has performed and recorded with Carla Bozulich/Evangelista, Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O)))), Chris Corsano, N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten), Y.E.R.M.O., Sum Of R, Bison Bisou, Ed Wood Jr and the interdisciplinary Collective DEGA!

Kasper T. Toeplitz:
French composer and musician of Polish origin. He has worked with academic research organizations, such as GMEM, GRM, IRCAM, and Radio-France, as well played and recorded with experimental musicians, such as Éliane Radigue, Zbigniew Karkowski, Dror Feiler, Tetsuo Furudate, Phill Niblock and Art Zoyd . Citing Giacinto Scelsi and Iannis Xenakis as influences, his early work was mostly written for traditional instruments. He received several prizes and distinctions for these works. He create called the BassComputer, an electric bass with 5 fretted strings and 4 unfretted strings, intended to be interfaced with a computer. In 2004, he commissioned a piece from Eliane Radigue called Elemental II, which he interpreted for the BassComputer. He later commissioned Phil Niblock’s Yam almost may, and Dror Feiler’s Ousia. He has also written for dance, as well as theatre. In 2007 he created, with Eryck Abecassis and Wilfried Wendling, KERNEL, a computer ensemble devoted to interpretation, live stricto sensu (without any samples or sequences), of electronic music compositions. In Groups: Art Zoyd, Clystere, Kernel, La Rédemption Électrique, Le Dépeupleur, My Daily Noise, Senssurround Orchestra, Sleaze Art.

Antoine Chessex:
Composer and sound artist whose works assume a wide diversity of forms spanning compositions for ensembles, solo performances, sound installations and transdisciplinary projects. His compositions are  characterized by textural density and microtonal tensions often resulting in sound-masses exploring the physical dimensions of space. The works of Antoine Chessex have over the years crossed the boundaries between noise, modern composition, improvisation and electronic music. His background as a saxophone player saw him performing extensively in different experimental music contexts over the past decades.Recent chamber music commissions include DUST (2010) for three violins and electronics, Chute for the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, Schichten & Ritournelle Fulgurante for the oh ton Ensemble, Metakatharsis & Damage is Done for the Phoenix Ensemble, Furia for the Ensemble Werktag in Zürich and Plastic Concrete & Accumulation for Apartment House in London.
