Xavier Garcia


Composer and improviser, he's interested into both things as creating music in studio and playing live on stage.
He has composed nearly 30 electronic pieces in INA GRM (Paris), GMVL (Lyon), or "at home".
Since 1987, he's a member of the "ARFI" (Association looking for an imaginary folklore) : he plays sampler and electronic devices in ARFI 's groups as "L'Effet Vapeur"," 32 Janvier","Duo Recio-Garcia", "La Marmite Infernale", "La Grande Illusion", "Potemkine"," Villerd/Ayler quartet", "Lighthouse", "Bobines Mélodies", "Old, Blind & deaf ", "Virtuel Remix"...

He plays also in solo and leads some different projects as "Virtuel Meeting", "Radiorama", "Reel Meeting".

He worked with stage directors as Denis Guénoun, Jean Yves Picq, Dominique Lardenois, Elisabeth Macocco, Jean Paul Delore..., art designers (Philippe Mouillon), movie directors , vidéo artists, 3D movie directors (Claude-Pierre Chavanon, Françoise Petiot, Lorenzo Recio, Fabrice Fouquet), choreographers (Stéphanie Aubin, Ulises Alvarez, Julyen Hamilton), joglers (Jérôme Thomas), and some other musicians and composers (Eric Brochard, Chris Cutler, Brian Eno, Heiner Goebbels, Gianni Gebbia, Alexandre Meyer, ONJ Franck Tortiller, Les Percussions de Strasbourg, Hasse Poulsen, Carlo Rizzo, Yves Robert, Guillaume Roy, Norbert Stein …)


Lionel Marchetti
is a French composer of concrete music
an improviser (electronics, various analogic systems with modified speakers, REVOX reel-to-reel recorder…)
as well as a visual-sound artist, a writer and a poet

Whether his music is composed or improvised
the body has an important role (Lionel Marchetti danced with the university company Relyanse between 1986 and 1991)

To define his music, one can borrow Kenneth White’s saying :

« Concrete or abstract ?
I like abstraction where a memory of substance remains, concrete refined on the frontiers of emptiness. »
[free translation]
