Les Chroniques de l’Inutile, playing compositions by its guitar player Benjamin Sauzereau, explores the border between written music and the freedom of improvisation.’Virgule’ is the result of Les Chroniques de l’Inutile growing as a septet. This new set of pieces, very “song-like”, wild in some moments, surprisingly gentle and peaceful in some others, celebrates the present moment and reminds the importance of punctuation.

« Philémon, le chien qui ne voulait pas grandir » is the name of the band, and of their first record. It’s a collection of poetic instrumental songs by Mathieu Robert and Benjamin Sauzereau exploring the expressive potential of an unusual instrumentation, and the pleasures of accoustic sounds.

EASY PIECES is a trio that explores the combination of acoustic and amplified sounds, by playing original compositions written for the unusual instrumentation of acoustic piano, keyboards, and guitar. Wide soundscapes, carefully crafted melodies, small and refined instrumental pieces with an improvised dimension that suggest real-life stories but always leave enough space for the listener to wander.
A simple guitar solo: instrumental pieces, written and half improvised musical haikus somewhere between Arvo Part, Duke Ellington, The White Stripes and Nino Rota.
Benjamin Sauzereau: guitar Ananta Roosens: Violin
This duet aims to explore what two musicians can do better then three. Original music only, simple, deceivingly intimistic, written for this instrumentation and these musicians, looking for the mistake, and the surprising beauty of what we may always have seen but never looked at.
