Jean-Luc Guionnet and Claire Bergerault have been working as an organ and voice duo in various churches since 2007. The challenge is, each time, to adapt to the configuration of the building and the organ, and then to stretch their music on the breach of this singularity.
Born 1966 in Lyon, Jean-Luc Guionnet is a French saxophonist and organist, a visual artist, a performer, and an electroacoustic composer. Jean-Luc Guionnet studied visual arts and electroacoustic music with Christine Groult, Michel Zbar and Iannis Xénakis. A multi-instrumentalist (alto & soprano saxophone, organ, piano), he has improvised and experimented in the field of electroacoustic music with Eric La Casa
, Eric Cordier, Pascal Battus
, Edward Perraud, Frédéric Blondy, Sophie Agnel, André Almuro, Olivier Benoit, with the groups Schams, Synapses, Calx, Phéromones and Hubbub. Passing from a very physical approach of the play, of the breath, to a work of sound spatialization, through complex sound devices.
French singer, accordionist and conductor, Claire Bergerault participates in several projects in the field of improvised, experimental and contemporary music.
