By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Artist, composer and improvising musician, Hervé plays saxophones, shakuhachi and laptop in various groups and produces music between jazz, contemporary and electroacoustic music.

He has released three albums with Inclusion Principle (Discus label), as well as recordings in collaboration with artists from around the world and solo work on various netlabels.

Hervé has worked as sound recordist and sound designer on a number of short films, and recently completed residencies doing location recordings and concerts with Maja Bugge’s Northern (Full of Noises, Manchester Jazz Festival, Lancaster Jazz Festival).

With a series of solo gigs, Hervé is promoting his latest album, Imploding Stars (Focused Silence, 2019) – Improvising soundscapes with saxophone and live processing, he explores the abstract side of his instrument, breath and resonance. And with the help of granular synthesis takes a journey through space, into emptiness, and stellar fractals.

About The Noise Upstairs

The Noise Upstairs is an improv collective which runs a free-improv night in Manchester. The basic premise is that anyone can turn up and join in by putting their name in the hat. Names are pulled out, ensembles formed, and hearts broken.
