Sunday 2nd November 07:30 PM

**Sylvain’s first ever London show***
Sylvain Chauveau has done several albums on Type records, Les Disques du Soleil et de l'Acier and FatCat: minimal, melodic compositions for piano, strings, winds and discreet electronic sounds, with silence as a musical element in itself. He opened a few times for Sigur Ros (2002, 2003), played with Christian Fennesz (Musique Action festival 2004) and did remixes for some bands. He composes soundtracks for Sébastien Betbeder's movies, especially for the full-length film "Nuage" (screened at the Locarno film festival 2007, released in september 2007). Film director Thomas de Thier asked him to compose the original soundtrack to his movie "Feathers in my head" (2004). He also did scores for choregraphers (Pierre Rigal / Aurélien Bory, Serge Ricci) and for performances with writers (Mark Z. Danielewski, Félicia Atkinson, Joris Lacoste) in France and abroad. He was born in 1971 and lives now in Paris.
Peter Broderick is a prodigiously talented and impossibly youthful musician & composer from Portland, Oregon, who currently resides in Denmark. Born in 1987, Peter has already played and toured with numerous groups in Portland and has established himself as a regular session musician for many recording studios, adding violin, banjo, musical saw, mandolin etc to artists such as M. Ward, Zooey Deschanel, Dolorean, and many more.
