Quentin Rollet, Xavier Mussat - Débordements (CD)
Soundscapes, drones, disruptive aberrations, textures and perplexingly absorbing interactions between French guitarist, graphic and sound artist Xavier Mussat and saxophonist Quentin Rollet, performing live at Instants Chavires, in Montreuil, France, in 2020, for eight diverse and unusual improvisations.
Xavier Mussat: extended electric guitar, effects, no-input mixer.
Quentin Rollet: saxophones alto and sopranino, Korg Monotron, effects.

Quentin Rollet (born 1974) started playing the alto saxophone at the age of 11 and the sopranino saxophone at 37. After a few years spent unlearning the teaching of the conservatory, he devoted himself solely to free improvisation. This led him to play on record or on stage with groups as varied as Nurse With Wound, Prohibition, The Red Krayola, Mendelson, David Grubbs, Herman Dune, Akosh S. Unit, Thierry Müller, Rubin Steiner, eRikm, Jac Berrocal, Andrew Liles... He is the co-founder of the labels Rectangle (with Noël Akchoté), reQords and Bisou Records.
Xavier Mussat (born 1969 in Nîmes) is a French graphic novel author and experimental musician and guitarist. He is one of the co-founders of the publishing house Ego comme X, and the co-founder, with Paul-André Landes, of the label Apocope.
Mixed and mastered by Patrick Müller.
