BIOGRAPHY

Born in Paris in 1984, Antoine began playing the piano at a very young age. Marked by the listening to family records, he turned to jazz at the age of 13. It was only after completing his studies as a sound technician that he decided to pursue a professional career in music.

After his decisive meeting with Emil Spanyi at the Conservatoire du 9e arrondissement, he joined the CRR de Paris where he studied with the latter and Benjamin Moussay, and from which he left in 2010 with the DEM Jazz et musiques improvisées.

He has since multiplied various musical experiences. After a first album in 2011 and numerous concerts with the Urbs quintet, he created an electroacoustic duo with the band's saxophonist, Axel Rigaud. An EP will be launched in 2012. He will then perform in the play Qui m'aime me nuise me nuise, in which he improvises on texts by Dorothy Parker. On the strength of this successful experience, he joined Oh my glotte in 2013. He has also played since then in the new soul band Serrad, in the post-rock band White Note since 2012 and in the rhythm and blues band Nantucket, whose first ep has been released in 2016.

2015 marks the launch of his trio. With Simon Bernier on drums and Anders Ulrich on double bass, he plays his compositions and explores Greek musical richness. Cybèle Castoriadis' occasional presence on vocals allows him to make the connection he loves so much with the text. The first album, Trails, was released in December 2016 on Parallel Records and the second one, Insulary Tales, is scheduled for the beginning of 2019.
