Spéléographies is a Biennial with an interest in different manifestations of scribbling anorms of writing, that brings together practitioners from comics, literature and music to collaborate and produce a work that will be exhibited in May 2016.
A series of duets with Jonas Kocher have been filmed in the Contemporary Art Center Pasquart in Bienne/Bil, Switzerland. Our goal is to resonate our music in different environments and extend our architectural conception of improvisation as an intuitive, purposeless machine that makes music.
