J’ai enfin eu le temps de nettoyer le site de toutes les véroles qui s’y étaient installées. Juste à temps pour clore cette année 2019 bien remplie. La tournée au Japon a été intense et enchaînée avec un concert à Munich sans avoir le temps de récupérer du jetlag, mais super content d’avoir fait tout ça :p J’ai même eu droit à une petite expo à Nagoya (un grand merci à Mme et Mr Kano) ! Et j’ai évidemment ramené un peu de matériel.

Chris Sigdell is an experimental electronic musician from Sweden. He developed a soft spot for early industrial textures and pioneering ambient soundscapes while cutting his teeth in cult industrial band NID (1995-2005). He builds an interesting body of work that moves in various directions at the same time. From dealings with ambient and isolationism on one hand and experimental music, ranging from the soft microsound end to the more engaging noise end, in a clever combination of ideas…

He has appeared at various renown festivals such as Audio Art (PL), Les Digitales (CH), Norberg Festivalen (S), Temple Of Silence (PL), PNEM (NL), Støy På Landet (N), Monsters Of Rot (IRL), Destroy All Artifacts (UK), Unser Industrie (DE), Ausklang (DE), Shift (CH), Lab30 (DE), Kildemose Festivalen (DK), Zeit Für Lärm (DE), Sinus Series (CH).
