Antoine Chessex, born in 1980 in Switzerland, is a key spoke in the wheel of
Europe's experimental music community. His work is moslty based on the
exploration of the physicality of sounds. Appearing nowadays mostly as a
solo performer, he developed a highly original way of playing the saxophone,
sending his horn through walls of guitar amplifiers or PA systems combined
with electronic devices and resulting in very intense "doom-sax" actions
where low frequencies react with the sonic architecture of the space while
collapsing together with vocal mayhem and chaotic electronic behaviours.
