Half Evidence (free improvisation duo formed in 2012 with Charles premier ) is currently on hiatus since summer 2016 but the story isn’t finished. Some new material will be published in 2019. Before finalizing these projects, the duo has selected four of their favorite tracks that were given to various compilations (namely Necktar 2017 curated by Ed End on his netlabel Le Colibri Nécrophile and Classwar Karaoke). The resulting album Épiphytes brings four insights on the duo’s works and can be a good way to discover their sound universe and its evolution across the years.

Flowers in the trashbin is now avialable on eg0cide productions. It was the first collaborative work made via file excchange with my good friend Ayato, intitially published in 2010 by HAK lo-fi record as a limited edition CD-R with a special rectangular cardboard cover that is out of print since a long time. Back then we made some kind of experimental songs that I still like a lot.
And after years of doubts and irregular work I’ve finally finished the mixing of our new album “The Shaman won’t come back” that will be published in a few months.

M.A.K.T. Sono – Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul – was created in february 2018 from a common taste for improvisation forms that rely more on indetermination and surprise than on the mastering of instrumental skills. They both use electronic tools whose complex settings can generate unexpected sound events and unstable situations. Their first album If you were a clarinet consists of 3 selections of slightly edited improvisations recorded in february and march 2018. These improvisation sessions were an opportunity for them to set up their working methodologies and to experiment playful and meditative dialogs between gesture & sound, activity and inactivity, machines and living creatures.
Magali Albespy is a dancer and performer. She likes to question the borders between formats and artistic disciplines. She explores real-time composition with body, video and sound.
Self-taught improviser Kecap Tuyul uses various (and preferably unstable) tools, looking for ways of playing and interacting (with sounds, with other media, with other people) and questionning the traditional ideas of instrumental mastership and composition.

“There is a charming satisfaction in successfully collaborating with someone over the Internet. Two people in different countries sharing ideas, critiquing in constructive ways, producing sounds brought out from hearing what the other has done – those are a few of the joys that come from working with someone who listens. Long distance improvisation in non-real time.
Kecap Tuyul and I spent a good amount of time working on, ultimately, four audio tracks. We were patient. We were willing to work until they were the best we could do.
We hope you are able to get some pleasure from listening to what we did together.”
(Presentation text from Jeff Sampson, april 2014)
The Road of Life, a collaboration track with Crows in the Garden has been released by treetrunk
