The work of French clarinetist Xavier Charles (1963) ranges from electro-acoustic improvisation to harsh noise via sound poetry. His musical research currently ranges from performance on the clarinet to installation of vibrating speakers, at the edge of improvised music, noise rock and electro-acoustic sound art. Among many others, he has worked and recorded with Axel Dörner, Franz Hautzinger, Leonel Kaplan, John Butcher, Lionel Marchetti, Otomo Yoshihide, Martin Tétreault, Ingar Zach, and the independent Dutch music group The Ex. / xaviercharles.com

Rimouski-based composer, improviser, bassist and instrument designer Éric Normand (1977) defines himself as an epidisciplinary musician. As an improviser, he has developed a personal and radical playing on his home-made electric bass, equipped with contact microphones and objects feedbacking and vibrating by small electronic devices, creating electric flux interrupted by instrumental gestures. With this set, he runs regular duos with Xavier Charles, Jim Denley, Philippe Lauzier, Magda Mayas, Pierre-Yves Martel and Martin Tétreault – in addition of several spontaneous encounters. / ernormand.wordpress.com
