[b]The Same Girl & TILT[eb]

Before discovering a common interest in improvised music, Nicolas Field and Gilles Aubry met up during the summer of 1995 as they were trying to seduce the same girl. The story ended up in an intense and fruitful musical collaboration.

First of all with "Dipsa" including Dirk Bruinsma (saxes) and Bjornar Habbestad (flutes) in 2001-2002, where they played in Switzerland and Holland. In 2003 they played some concerts in Amsterdam with Norwegian guitarist John Hegre (Jazzkammer) and American electronicist Jaime Fennelly (psi) in 2003.

The concert played at the AudioArt Festival 2003 in Krakow (Poland) stated the beginning of their duo work, characterised by an instinctive approach and a strong complicity. By contrast as well as by mixture of sounds, Gilles Aubry and Nicolas Field try to capture and surprise by immerging themselves completely in the energy of the moment.

They will be performing on the AMR festival in Geneva on the 1st of April, followed by a short tour in Switzerland and France.
