ABOUT BANDWITH (FR) + GERRI JÄGER (AT)
Ayankoko: ppooll on Max/MSP
Mathieu Garrouste: electronics, tapes
Gerri Jäger: drums, percussion, electronics
A very contemporary ambient noise music akin to noise shouting, where irritating bursts meet devastated post-industrial landscapes, in which a human hand can sometimes be felt? Laptop and turntable improvisations inspired by digital noise, rather than analog synths, it´s not electronic music, but sounds based on an interruption.
A bandwith of a hail of information, encoded and compressed, made audible and manipulated, but very similar to the original signal, information encoded by protocols we are unable to understand, without an appropriate interface, so it?s better to play with them and feel them.

Mathieu Garrouste: After learning the saxophone at the Perpignan Conservatory, his approach now focuses on experimental and improvised music. In 2006 he settled in Paris where he is still working. Always looking for new sound materials, his self-taught process takes him to twist cassette players, turntables, pick-up mic ? from their traditional use to create sound textures based on crackings, feedback, blows, no-input ?

Since 2010 he also co-organizes the trashvortex concert séries with fellow electronic musician Xavier Lopez.
Gerri Jäger (1979, Innsbruck): picked up the drums when he was 9 years old. After some brass-band and grunge-rock teenage years he studied jazz at the Conservatories of Innsbruck and later in Amsterdam, where he graduated in 2006. Through years of playing in numerous different bands from free-jazz to alt-rock, playing modern dance-improvs, experimental electronic club music and improvisation, Gerri is looking for ways to expand boundaries in music and its genres.
