Plimplim is a musician who explores a broad
aspect of electronic music, heading towards ambient, and post noise.
Somewhere between Oval, Telefon Tel Aviv and My Bloody Valentine...
Imagine a kind of shoeagaze meets early electronic music. He builds up his sonic universe by sampling sounds out of the real and
by synthesis. Soft pulsations mix with the crackles, oscillating endlessly
between harmony and disharmony and minimal melodies floating into distorsions
realms... He lives and works mainly in Bordeaux, France.
For concerts, Plimplim has developped
some instruments with Reaktor, modular synth or Max/msp to suit his performances. Seen
as a good place for improvisation, starting around remixes or samples
from his albums songs, Plimplim's concerts are always a one time enjoyable
listening performance as the pieces are only played during these gigs...
During 2001-02 he played in (f,m,q,s) +a, experimental band meeting
beetween students and university teachers. He appeared on n-rec "levitate"
compilation (2003) and work on a few albums under several aliases as
producer or player for different projects, including Monavana (french
chanson electro), Sub-Robot (rock), Radio Mexico (techno)... Plimplim
was also a regular partner of Stephane Abboud's "Les Projections Aléatoires".
In 2008 he wrote music for "léger tremblement du paysage" Philippe
Fernandez's movie. He also played in Templier (post krautrock), with
Grand Ours and Frank Lantignac and released an album of it on Telepherique
label. He worked with poets like Thomas Déjeammes (poetry &
electronic music), Fredérique Soumagne, and wrote music for theater
and dancers like Jerome Brabant or Jerome Sanson. In 2014 he got electroacoustic composition DEM at Bordeaux conservatoire.
Some electronic projects emerged during
2008-2010 like Trans-Sex Club. In 2010, As André Gosselin, he
created Violence Conjugale wih Hans Jemappes and they released an album
during 2012 spring on Born Bad Records. They released their second album in 2016 with Teenage Menopause Records.
