Sébastien, born in France in 1980, 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 plays in the saxophone duet Relentless, in duet with viola player Cyprien Busolini or electronics musician Miguel A. Garcia, in Ensemble with the Ensemble modèle réduit, in large orchestra with IMO, and regularly meets other artists, either for private sessions or performances. He also works on solo performances with tenor sax on a stand and light electronics (Lignes) or soprano saxophone and water (saxopH2One).

He’s also working as a sound artist, mainly in cooperation with French Photographer Diane Martinot with whom he works on ways to mix sound and light in different ways.

He has played around Europe in various venues and festivals, for concerts, dance performances or soundwalks.

In April 2015, he moved to Leipzig and started devoting his time to shiatsu and to his music. Since 2018 he co-organises the initiative LeipziXP, a platform for experimental music, and focuses his efforts on the local scene.
