Jean-Marc Foussat

Born:

Né Jean-Marc Foussat en 1955 à Oran, c’est tout d'abord avec la guitare, au milieu des années 70 que je crée plusieurs groupes aussi expérimentaux qu'éphémères pour peu à peu lui préférer le synthétiseur & le papier réglé, prenant autant de plaisir à trafiquer la bande magnétique, en solitaire. Fin 79, j’ai 24 ans et je travaille en studio, à la suite de quoi, je choisis d'enregistrer la musique improvisée en concert et collabore avec Incus, hat Hut, Po-Torch, Rift, Rec Rec, Celluloïd…. En 81, je termine "Abattage", mon premier disque solo qui sera finalement édité en Mars 83. Dix ans plus tard, grâce à « Marteau Rouge », je reprends le chemin de la scène et du public avec mon synthétiseur analogique en compagnie de Makoto Sato à la batterie et de Jean-François Pauvros à la guitare électrique. En 2005 je fais la connaissance de Sylvain Guérineau, saxophoniste, avec qui nait « Aliquid », ce qui petit à petit, va m’entrainer à jouer de plus en plus régulièrement avec de nombreux acteurs des musiques improvisées…
