The Mees Siderius & Hugo Lioret x GÂRDEN livestream is a sonic and visual trip through an improvisational landscape. The experimental compositions of Hugo Lioret are matched with the rhythmic patterns of percussionist Mees Siderius. The music is wrapped together by the visuals of digital artist Raphaël Morel who joins the show from his hometown Paris!
Mees Siderius is a skilful percussionist, composer, teacher, organizer and co-founder of the Utrecht platform for free improvisation BUI. Mees is interested in discovering the boundaries between composing and improvising and tends to focus on the energy that is used to create, crossing genre boundaries. He is the drummer of the alternative band King Champion Sounds and plays with the Utrecht Jazz Archipel, the Prashant Small Quartet. He has been involved in many remarkable collaborations in the experimental, alternative and free improvisation scene in The Netherlands.
Hugo Lioret is an electroacoustic composer, musician, field recordist and sound artist currently studying at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague. Hugo is deeply involved in music mediation and is interested specifically in the live production of sound processing techniques, using the sounds around him as his material. As a trained jazz drummer at the Dante Agostini school, on sound creation with Mathias Delplanque, on vibraphone at the Clichy Conservatory and on sound design with Hervé Bouley at Radio France, Hugo has provided compositions and sound design for short films, theatre plays and radio programs amongst live performance.
