French musician David Chiesa (double bass, electric bass and piano frame) has been active on the international improvised scene since 1997. He is the co-founder with Michel Doneda
of the Ensemble Nodal. As an improviser, he has played with a great number of musicians and has been nourishing his work for a long time with an intimate relationship with other practices such as dance (with Fine Kwiatkowski, Yukiko Nakamura, Masaki Iwana...), poetry (with Charles Pennequin
, Ly Thanh Tien. ..), experimental cinema (with Gaelle Rouard, Xavier Quérel, Etienne Caire...) or light (with Christophe Cardoen, Sébastien Perroud, Michael Vorfeld...), visual arts or theater. He is also strongly influenced by the articulations of electroacoustic music with which he works regularly.
Didier Lasserre (born 1971 in Bordeaux) is a French drummer and percussionist. His musical roots are in free jazz and improvisation. In a paradoxical way with respect to his activity as a "free" percussionist, he has always been interested in what is commonly known as silence, as well as in very soft dynamics, worked as a passageway to access this silent zone.
Laurent Sassi (born 1973 in Abidjan, lives and works in Rabastens, France) explores sound in relation to a variety of contemporary fields: improvisation, instrumental and electronic music, phonography and the art of sound in the theatre.
