Xerox Exotique #077: Mathieu Sylvestre – Svein Rikard Mathisen & John Derek Bishop – 18.04.23

By his musical approach Mathieu Sylvestre explores the strains between natural soundscapes and artificial/electronic sound sources. The main focus is to merge antinomic sounds and push in boundaries using atypical treatments in field recordings with modular synthesizers with tapes or loopers. The importance of precise details along waves of harsh frequencies bring a physical and appealing magnitude to the process.

Svein Rikard Mathisen (guitar, electronics) and John Derek Bishop (live-sampling, electronics) are a Norwegian ambient jazz duo. They released their critically aclaimed debut album “Calm Brutalism” on Curling Legs in 2022.
John Derek Bishop has released five albums on Jazzland Recordings (under the alias Tortusa) and was nominated for Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammy) for «I Know This Place – The Eivind Aarset Collages». He has collaborated and released music with Arve Henriksen, Eivind Aarset, Erland Dahlen, and Jan Bang to name a few. His latest solo album “Bre” received 4 of 5 stars in Mojo Magazine and Future Music Magazine.
Svein Rikard Mathisen has released three albums, written one commissioned work for the Nattjazz-festival in Bergen and been touring extensively for the last seven years, with his own projects.
Their tour is funded by Arts Council Norway, Music Norway and Norwegian Jazz forum.
