Yannick Guédon & Thomas Bernardet
06/07/2014 -

Yannick Guédon is a French born composer, singer and performance artist, currently living in Brussels. His work focuses on tiny variations of timbres, the inner pulsation sensations and subjective notions of time, silence and error. Moreover he pays particular attention to the place and context in which each musical situation is displayed.

In 2006 he wrote his first piece, pitulatif, for a solo voice. He followed it with ticdê (2007) a vocal trio, infimie (2007) for voice, electroacoustic, video and light, soupir (2009) and pause (2010) for clarinet, guitar, percussion, cello and voice. In 2011 he initiated the project a _ t e m p _ s , cycle of sound situations for voice, treble viola da gamba and field-recording, in which one or several guest artists may be invited. It generated

For 2015, he is preparing a trio he will play with Radu Malfatti and Deborah Walker, and a piece commissionned by the dedalus ensemble.

He has also performed with the following musicians among others : Didier Aschour, Antoine Beuger, Jean- Christophe Camps, Mattieu Delaunay, Jürg Frey, Thierry Madiot, Michael Pisaro, Carole Rieussec, Patrice Soletti, Deborah Walker. As a performer, he has worked with Roland Hayrabedian’s contemporary chamber choir, composers such as Rodolphe Bourotte, Pascale Criton and György Kurtag Jr ; and the choreographers Chazallon&Chaput, Philipp Gehmacher, Marcos Simoes&Lilia Mestre, and Rémy Héritier. Since 2002 he has been involved in many pieces and site specific performances created by the choreographer Laurent Pichaud.


Thomas Bernardet studied photography and video art at the Beaux-arts in Toulouse and Marseille, and as an exchange student at the Kent Institute of Art and Design. He has been living and working in Brussels since 2004. His work addresses the conditions in which an image, whether still or moving, is captured and shown. The presence of abstraction in documentary images is also a recurring theme. He has recently shown his work at Vidéodanses festival in Centre Pompidou, Galerie Magda Danys in Paris, True Color Museum, Suzhou in China, Gallery Mot International in Brussels and Galerie Point to Point in Nîmes. His film “Les Doubres” won the Grand Jury Prize at Transmediales Berlin.
