Antoine Chessex is a swiss composer, saxophone player and sound artist born in 1980 in Vevey (CH). His works assume a wide diversity of forms spanning compositions for ensembles, solo performances, sound installations and transdisciplinary projects. Chessex's compositions are characterized by textural density and microtonal tensions often resulting in sound masses addressing the physical dimensions of sound and spaces. His solo works feature dense layers of sustained pitches reacting with the architecture of the space or massive clouds of amplified sax resulting in intense live actions in total immersion in the sound. He presents his works worldwide and appeared at numerous international venues and festivals in the United States, Japan, China, Russia and all around Europe.
