STEPHAN MATHIEU | JASON LESCALLEET | VALERIO TRICOLI
Stephan Mathieu is a self taught composer and performer, working in the field of electroacoustics and abstract digitalia. His sound is largely based on early instruments, environmental sound and obsolete media, which are recorded and transformed by means of experimental microphony, re-editing techniques and software processes involving spectral analysis and convolution. It has been compared to the landscape paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, the work of Colorfield artists Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Ellsworth Kelly. He currently collaborates with Sylvain Chauveau, Robert Hampson / Main, Taylor Deupree, Caro Mikalef, van Wissem and David Sylvian.
Jason Lescalleet’s sound world occupies a space between noise, contemporary composition, and minimal electronics. Using decidedly primitive tactics and equipment (e.g. antiquated reel-to-reel recorders, damaged tape, etc.), his work focuses on extreme frequencies and microscopic audio detail. Jason Lescalleet is an exciting tape-music artist. He’s been a member of Due Process, performed and recorded with Keith Rowe,Joe Co1ley,Jason Kahn, Hudak, Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley, and most recently Graham Lambkin in their Breadwinner project. Lescalleet lives and works in the state of Maine. He has released music on significant labels such as PAN, Erstwhile Records, KYE, Intransitive Recordings and RRR.
Valerio Tricoli is a Berlin-based composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer, sound engineer and curator bridging musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound with a radical interest in how reality, virtuality and memory relate to each other during the acoustic event. He mostly uses analogue electronic devices (reel-to-reel tape recorders, synthesizers, microphones, light effects, ultrasonic speakers). The structure of the setup is ever-changing however, seeking multiple relations between the performers, the device and the space in which the event takes place.
