Sébastien plays soprano, tenor and C-melody saxophones. He got started with improvisation through workshops with musicians coming from contemporary jazz or improvised music.
Interested in perceptive phenomenons, he works mainly with sound as a material, describing himself as a “sound crafter” for an audience to listen to. His interests also extend to body and space, as he regularly confronts his practice to contemporary dance.
He has played around Europe in various venues and festivals, for concerts, dance performances or soundwalks and is based in Leipzig, Germany.

Harey & Koen
Kevin und Max stammen aus demselben provinziellen Jammertal, haben den Großteil ihrer Jugend aneinander vorbeigelebt und finden sich nun in regelmäßigen Abständen in Dresden und Leipzig, um Musik entstehen zu lassen oder Kitsch und Okkultismus zu frönen. Der Umstand, dass beide kein fertiges Livekonzept haben, sondern nach Neuem wühlen, lässt das Konzert zu einer Reise für Publikum und Musiker werden. Die Musik wabert, brummt, baut sich auf und stürzt wieder zusammen. Töne ruhen, finden sich, krachen ineinander oder rennen voreinander weg.

Saxophone Solo mit Henrik Pultz Melbye
Henrik Pultz Melbye – saxophone/clarinet player / improviser / composer
Since graduating from the Academy of Music and moving to Copenhagen in 2011 Henrik has been extremely active on the experimental and improvised music scene.
He has toured most of Europe and released four albums with the collective avantgarderock quartet SVIN, while also releasing a critically acclaimed album with his own band Henrik Pultz Melbye Trio, that got a nomination for a Danish Music Award in 2016.
In february 2017 he will release a cassette tape on the Copenhagen based label and record store, Insula Music, with recordings of solo saxophone done in rooms of different sizes and with different acoustics. The music is improvised on the spot and is part of an ongoing personal exploration of non-idiomatic saxophone sounds and techniques.
Henrik Pultz Melbye has collaborated and played with people like Kresten Osgood, Kasper Tranberg, Adam Rudolph, Jesper Zeuthen, Jacob Anderskov, Devin Gray, Jeppe Zeeberg a.o.
21.03.2017 – 20:00 Konzert
Surfaces Rotatives mit Pascal Battus
As a soundartist, improviser, composer, Pascal Battus has developed a sound praxis which is giving more focus to the sonic gestures and the situation which makes them happen, rather than to a specific instrument: guitar pickups (that is guitar microphones without the guitar), rotative surfaces, „environmented“ guitar (electric guitar laid on a table + contact microphone + objects+ electronics), percussion (amplified or not)…
He played in Europe, USA, Canada, Asia, Middle-East, Australia… in solo sets or, more frequently, with other musicians. He works regularly with dancers, performers and visual artists (video, light, sculpture…). He also draws and has invented soundmassage.
His work is being played on radio (France Musique, Radio Libertaire, Résonance FM, ABC…). His albums are published by Potlatch, Corpus Hermeticum, Amor Fati, Another Timbre, Cathnor, Organized Music From Thessaloniki, Herbal International…

Lignes with Sébastien Branche
ATTENTION: new location -> JHL
Küche für Alle from 20:00
Experiment and Improvisation with Adrian(sax), Malkos(beats), zigi(rap), Christof san( Guitar), Hiro(flute, key) – 23:00
Lignes is my solo work, sedimentation lines based on my experiences and projects over the past few years: how I became the musician that i am through collaborations, either long-term ones or one-time meetings.
… Lines and points.
It’s my horizon line also, as I am adding light electronics, with ideas to extend it in the coming years.
… Electrical lines.
The saxophone is set on a stand for freedom of movement. Paradoxically, it is a way of bringing it down from the high perch where tradition has put it. The instrument becomes a resonant body, not only a saxophone but also a percussion instrument, or an object that is rubbed, scratched, banged upon. It also becomes a filter for the breathing (as Stéphane Rives describes his soprano), or an acoustic filter for the synthetic sounds played inside its body – turning upside down the usual setting of electroacoustic music as here, it is the instrument that picks up and transforms the sounds provided by the computer.
… Lines of flight.

17-06.2017 – 20:30 Antez Solo
My Continuums are pieces of music for rubbed percussion. They are characterized by the acoustic emission of sounds.
At first I used cymbals, but I quickly started looking for any kind of objects, often found objects of different compositions; which after a few transformations, allowed me to continue to develop this sound material and motion work.
My Continuums have unusual sonic textures, they escape traditional percussion registers. They test the limits of our perception: from infra to ultrasonic, by playing phase shifts. They insert themselves into the intimacy of sound matter, through micro sounds, and we are presented with an audio saturation by noise density.
The flow of these sounds evokes restraint and excess, immersion and timelessness.
22.-25.06.2017 – Ausstellung mit Diane Martinot & Sébastien Branche
*** English below ***
Vernissage am 22.06 ab 19 Uhr + Saxofon Solo um 20 (Pünktlich)
Ausstellung 23.-25.06 ab 17 Uhr
Wir arbeiten zusammen seit Dezember 2016. Inspiriert von unseren bisherigen Arbeiten suchen wir neue Kombinationen zwischen Klang und Licht.
Wir präsentieren hier zwei Werke, die aus diesem Prozess hervorgingen.
Das erste Werk ist eine Serie aus Fotografien von Magnetbahnen aus Kassetten – metaphorisch eine Mischung aus Klang und Bild. Die Bildaufnahme und die Entwicklung sind durch den Klang inspiriert.
Das andere Kunstwerk ist eine Installation aus einem alten Kühlschrank. Wir haben visuelle und akustische Eindrücke kombiniert, um den Betrachter auf einen neuen Blickwinkel und ein anderes Hören von sonst gewöhnlichen Objekten des Alltags einzuladen.
Sébastien Branche und Diane Martinot
Vernissage: 22.06 from 19:00 + Saxophone Solo at 20:00 (sharp)
Opening times: 23.-25.06 from 17:00
From December 2016, we have been working on finding new ways to combine sound and light, drawing inspiration from our respective works. For this exhibition, we are presenting two pieces coming from our experiments.
The first one is built around photos from a cassette tape – already a metaphor of the mix between audio and visuals – photos which are influenced by sound both in the taking and developing, thanks to techniques that we developped ourselves.
The second piece is an installation built around a fridge, twisted both visually and sonically, inviting to give a new ear and a new look at a mundane and sometimes annoying object part of our daily life.

11-07.2017 – 20:30 Sindre Bjerga
SINDRE BJERGA (NO)
Sindre Bjerga is one of Norway’s most active experimentalists. Always aiming for that mind-altering head trip, Bjerga has been performing in Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, Argentina and South Korea for many years. His incredible long form isolationist and cavernous tape-drone meditation have been released across the underground spectrum. He’s collaborated with many artists, like Anla Courtis, Lasse Marhaug, Robert Horton, Culver, Posset and Adam Bohman. Lately he has been focusing more on collage work and performative elements, using tapes, re-wired toys, contact microphones, as well as snipptes from ordinary conversations and sounds from the everyday life in his concerts.

16.04.2018 – 20:00 Miman
Miman is an improvising trio consisting of fiddler Hans Kjorstad, guitarist and clarinetist Andreas Røysum and bassist Egil Kalman; three of the most distinct and active young voices on the thriving Scandinavian improv scene. You might have heard them in collaboration with people like Tobias Delius, Tristan Honsinger, Axel Dörner, Frode Haltli, Håkon Thelin, Jasper Stadhouders, Henrik Nørstebø, Adrian Myhr, Frode Gjerstad, Christian Wallumrød and Rhys Chatham, or in a plentitude of bands covering the spectrum from folk music to noise. As a trio their sound is shaped by their diverse backgrounds and influences; Norwegian, English and Indian folk music blends seamlessly with sentiments aching to free jazz and contemporary music in an organic fashion that steers clear of the dogmatic.
The trio has toured all over Europe the last year, and in early 2018 they will both release their debut album and keep spreading their sound across the continent.

Dieses Konzert ist auch eine Einladung, zum träumen und entspannen. Bringt ihr gerne eine Kisse, Yoga Matte oder so was zu liegen.

Their first album „Wolkokrot“ was released by the hungarian label Inexhaustible Editions in 2015. It was a studio work with various electronics, sound samples and field recordings as blurred reflections of memories. Next studio work called „Don Treppenwitz“ released on Dinzu Artefacts from USA in 2018 and contains developing of their work with voice samples, field recordings, synthesizers and small electronics. As a live unit Miguel and Ilia plays using improvised contexts and working with sounds from fluteophone, electronic devices and objects. First tour of the duo happened in December 2016 in Switzerland and France. They did some collaborations and recordings on that tour. One of sessions is meeting with Strøm, electronic duo of Gaudenz Badrutt & Christian Müller, which was released as split album „Cryptcionsion“ in Poland by VA Tapes. Another one is quartet with Jason Kahn on drums & Frantz Loriot on viola. Their album „Invanskrue“ was released on russian label called Intonema.
