Samuel MONCHARMONT

I was born in France, nearby Lyon in 1981. Musician, sound producer and visual artist, I have been fascinated by the moving body for several years already – specifically its motion through defined, sometimes enclosed, spaces.

My musical background was clearly shaped by rock, punk-rock and noise music, and my long-term involvement with bands Bâton Rouge and Daïtro which took me touring on several continents. I find however, and quite naturally, influences from minimal and conceptual art underlying most of my visual and sound projects – I like to think a sound, a gesture or an image that effectively conveys much information and emotion. Repetition and minimalism are recurrent terms in most descriptions of my work.

Series of schematic drawings, identifiable to choreography notation, often result thereof. I have, in addition, developed quadriphonic installations using sound motion and broadcasting voices shifting in space, as ways to generate a minimal melody as well as transcribe a motion, a journey.

My work unsurprisingly found its echo within the Berlin dance scene by the meeting with the dancer Arianna Rodeghiero in 2012.Then we created together the Company Rooms in 2016.

 

I started also to work on sound-documentary, after a professional formation in 2018.
