Guillaume Le Boisselier is a self-taught improviser and composer.
Part of his work could be qualified as some kind of primitive and instinctive musique concrète. He's looking for a form of concision rather than for extended durations, and has a taste for contrasts, from light to wall shaking sounds.
He uses contact mics and objects, as well as tonal instruments such as iranian Santur or some asian percussions, but also some electronic DIY devices and effects to generate a music that ranges from tense, intimate soundscapes to harsh noise experiments.
He works mainly with contemporary dancers and theatre but can also be found under several names / collaborations such as BLASTèME!, Hippy Death Suite, The Flowers of The Five Wounds or La Tierce.
He lives in Bruxelles.
