Sound artist, improviser, composer, Pascal Battus has developed a practice which is more concerned with sonic gestures, listening and the situation which determines them rather than with any particular instrument. Among other sound sources, he uses guitar pick-ups, rotating surfaces, ‘environmental guitar’ (table-top electric guitar with contact microphone, various objects and electronics), percussion (amplified objects, or not).
He has played throughout Europe and in the USA, Canada, Asia, the Middle East, Australia… both solo and more frequently with other musicians. He often works with dancers and with performers from the plastic arts (video, lighting, sculpture…) He has published drawings and was co-inventer of Sonic Massages (les Massages Sonores). His discs have been released by Potlatch, Corpus Hermeticum, Amor Fati, Another Timbre, Cathnor, Organized Music From Thessaloniki, Herbal Internationa.
