Three Timbres by Christophe de Bezenac
"Clinical Jazz" is an eclectic and illogical compilation.
Range: ....from "clinically" traditional jazz directions....... up to unclassable and clinically indefinable "jazz" forms.
Biography: Christophe de Bezenac is a French experimental saxophonist and researcher based in the UK. After studying contemporary improvised musics and composition at the Strasbourg conservatoire, he went to Indonesia to learn West Javanese and Balinese gamelan where he became interested in the perceptual ambiguity of music. Christophe then moved to the UK where he completed a Masters and Doctorate (Improvising Ambiguity: An Ecological Approach to Music-Making) at the University of Leeds, whilst lecturing and becoming actively involved in the music scene. His present research – which draws from ecological psychology, cognitive neuroscience, ethnomusicology and his own performance practice – examines the psychological and physiological mechanisms which promote delusions/illusions of control (leading to the perceptual blurring of self) in music-making. Christophe's related musical interests lie at the fringes of European improvisation, jazz, gamelan, DIY and electroacoustic music. He has performed at numerous international contemporary music and jazz festivals/venues around Europe, collaborating with artists from diverse musical backgrounds, including Christian Sebille, Marc Ducret, Simon Fell, David Murray, Ken Vandemark, Paul Hession, Matthew Bourne, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Frank Vigroux, Chris Sharkey and Dave Kane.
