Jean-Sébastien Mariage


Beyond a few famous guitarists (amplified) in the history of jazz, the great development of sound qualities of the electric guitar was mainly initiated by rock guitarists, often through unconscious and unpremeditated experiences. But the possibilities that these musicians have proved are today consciously extended by many avant-garde guitarists who can not be assimilated to rock or jazz or electronic music, but are in the center of development and concerns of all these musical forms, with as an anchor point: improvisation. Jean-Marc Montera, Stephan Wittwer and now Jean-Sébastien Mariage are, among others, part of this family of musicians who perpetuate the clearing and in one way or another, using new technologies or new materials are developing the instrument, transcend it, open it to unexpected sound, to unsuspected music. From Hendrix to Bailey, the electric guitar has become an instrument able to call into question preconceived notions about the real nature of music and sound and its true artistic and political functions.
Théo Jarrier

An imposing sound, a biting distortion, shrill and massive attacks, living disruptions, almost tactile materials. The proof that there is still and always to make with this stringed instrument.
Jérome Noetinger
