Gael Moissonnier is a French self-tough experimental musician and sound artist. Musical interests focus on fully immersive physical sound situations and psychoacoustic phenomenas. Constantly improvised and always spontaneous, live acts are built with psychoactive rhythmic patterns, sine wave driven meditative drones, thick and noisy processed field recordings, that in a good day should provoke altered states of conciousness and orbit one´s head.

Proactively involved in the underground scene since early 2000, he has been running the Lyon based venue Grrrnd Zero (2005-2010) and the Zerojardins label (since 2006), organised hundreds of shows and collaborates/collaborated with Julien Louvet (The Austrasian Goat), Simon Deterne (8.0), Ben Morris ( Lost Wax, Chora), Pascal Nichols (Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides), Samuel Moncharmont (Baton Rouge), Julien Dupont, François Virot, Frank Garcia (Sheik Anorak, Gaffer Records), Ernest Bergez (Sourdure, Kaumwald) among others.

Recent releases include : «Live at Knot Gallery » 3" CD on Orila Records and « Miniatures / Synth Music » on Winebox Press.

Past performances include appearances at Audioblast Festival #3, Nantes, 2015; LUFF Festival, Lausanne, 2011; Chuuuuut ! Festival, Grim / Montévideo, Marseille, 2011; Kill Your Pop Festival, Dijon, 2009; Les Urbaines Festival, Lausanne, 2007; Les Instants Chavirés, Paris; Cave 12, Geneva; Oslo10, Basel; Garage Mu, Paris; Knot Gallery, Athens; ZDB, Lisboa; NK, Berlin.

Gael Moissonnier
Live at Knot Gallery

label: Orila Records
catalogue#: orl15
available format: 3" Cd, Digital
release date: April 1st, 2013

Content
Sprung from his performance in Athens -part of the winter/spring European tour- this recording best describes the case for current modular synthesis. Moissonnier´s sound sculpture has a psychedelic, rhythmic underlying pattern similar to early electronic compositions. Through these 24 minutes we come across layers of slowly interleaving schematic noise & processed field recording music tracks. Not your typical noise record, in the sense that somewhere in there, the human element is present and controlling the machine.

Tracklist
1. 24:00

Details
200 gms paper. Silver Cd. Includes high-quality digital download. Sleeve design by Bend. Mastering by Spyros Emanouilidis. 60 copies.

Miniatures / Synth Music

label: Winebox Press
catalogue#: winebox19
available format: Cassette C53
release date: February 22th, 2013

Content
First release of 2013. Gael Moissonnier is a French artist and experimental musician based for the past couple of years in Brussels.
In the past he's played in the bands Motherfucking, La 6eme Faute and the large free ensemble Faux Amis (with Chora, Helhesten and others).
These days he can be found chugging Duvel and monstering his analog synth machine, as he does beautifully here, in a classic
one-side-short-pieces/one-side-sidelong-jam format.

Tracklist
A. Miniatures 26:24
B. Synth Music 20:13

Details
Edition of 46 copies comes from a garden chair, stripped of it's unflattering varnish and put back together in a pocket-style cassette sheath.
