PLIMPLIM

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 electro 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.
