Artists Sébastien Roux

Coming from the experimental electronic music scene, Sébastien Roux has played in Europe, Australia and USA. He has been invited by several festivals like Musique action (Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy), Nuit d’hiver (Marseille), Netmage (Bologna), Whynote (Dijon), Présences “électronique” (Paris), J’en Rêve (Paris), Musica (Strasbourg), Net Days (Bruxelles), Santarcangelo (Italy), etc. Since 2004, he has been working as a musical assistant at IRCAM, where he mainly collaborates with composer Georges Aperghis. He is a prize winner at the 6th “Villes manifestes” Radio Art Competition (La Muse en circuit, France, 2005). His work is released by the labels apestaartje, 12k, Carpark and Room 40.

Roux’s music is personal and multi-faceted; From warm and drowsy ambient tones to digital fests of errors and erratic rhythms to a more song-structured approach hinting at a distant relative of submereged pop music. His influences include musique concrète, folk songs, and electronic music and his work at IRCAM in Paris wraps his ecclectic tastes into an expertly produced work of digital sound that dœs not rely on one particular sound or motif but rather highlights a breadth of processes and unique sonic juxtaposititons.
