x _ k v a r t e t t was founded on the idea of organised chaos, a chaos which reflects a character ephemeral and fragmented, at once hard and fragile, of our time. It’s a declaration of the love of life. x _ k v a r t e t t ’s music varies from psychadelic sound sculptures and open atmospheres through to powerful and sustained rhythms. The four musicians, who all evolved their playing in the milieu of free improvisation, use this freedom to create new forms reminiscent of the instinct and spirit of punk. They move easily through the flux of time to capture the now. While most of their songs are created through free improvisation, the music is also supported by structures and texts. The act of composition is like a compass point directing their musical energy.
x _ k v a r t e t t is a group which discovers itself anew each performance and ceases to exist in the same form the following day. As a result, their concerts are like a synapse between space and time shared with the public.

i.n.oui is a series of musical or interdisciplinary projects initiated by Lembe Lokk and open to all the encounters possible between improvisators et improvisations.
The repertoire of i.n.oui is simply… i.n.oui Existing or invented music, body ‘movements’, creating an encounter always unique, never repeated. From noises to the music of silence, known or unknown, the language of i.n.oui is, quite simply, the sound.
i.n.oui concerts were given in numerous concerts and recordings.
