ACL presents The TANDEM Trio!

The TANDEM Trio blends many contemporary experimental musical influences including electroacoustic, minimalist, and free improvised music. Working with a large instrumental palette, they play music focused completely on the present moment, with sound and the act of listening constituting the core of their music.

Anouck Genthon is violinist, improviser, and ethnomusicologist based in Geneva, Switzerland. Using the violin in both traditional and extended techniques, her work delves deeply into her own improvised language through sound experience. She participates in many other projects, including Jacques Demierre’s “The languages came first. The country after,” a musical and poetic work where voice and violin draw on the poetic expression of speech and on sung poetry.





Tom Malmendier is a Belgian drummer, self-taught, and from the very beginning interested more in sound than in technique. He is active in the ensembles L'Oeil Kollectif in Liège, Ninglinspo, Nystagmus, and Bobby de Nazareth, and collaborates with pianist Cecile Thévenot and many other musicians in Belgium and France.






Ed Williams is a guitarist, harpsichordist, and composer active in the experimental music scene in Marseille, France. In addition to his various solo projects concentrating on prepared guitar techniques and amplified harpsichord, he has founded or is an active member in AND, Heard of Bears, and Le Grand 8 Ensemble. With these and other projects he has undertaken band and solo tours across Europe.
