Lionel Marchetti (1967) is a notable French electroacoustic improviser and musique concrète composer, visual-sound artist, a writer and a poet. Self-taught at first, he later studied musique concrète with Xavier Garcia. Lionel Marchetti is a pioneer improviser, using various electronic instruments, analog systems with modified speakers, REVOX reel-to-reel recorder etc. He has collaborated with musicians like Jérôme Noetinger, Xavier Garcia, Xavier Charles, Seijiro Murayama, Emmanuel Holterbach, and Yan Jun, as well as with Japanese musician and dancer Yôko Higashi. Through the years, he shaped a very unique personal music idiom, documenting a broad-spectrum of ideas, ranging from powerful sonic attacks to narrative “ambient” music.

Chasser (2012) contains his “first natural study” Volet in three parts. Most of the sounds used for Chasser, was recorded in mountains via a k7 tape recorder and recomposed to his personal studio in France, as well as CFMI Lyon, GMVL of Lyon and the INA-GRM studios of Paris (1991/1999). His sound palette is an eclectic mix of the most diverse materials. Natural landscape recordings that are used as the main sound source, manipulated and mixed with electronic sounds, piano tunes and poetry. Lionel Marchetti manage to approache his music as a source of images, recreating an artificial sound environment, a world within world.

The piano fragments are from 5 studies for nothing, composed and performed by Olivier Capparos (recordings at CFMI Lyon / 1995) and are freely arranged by Lionel Marchetti.
