While Marta Zapparoli works with DIY machines and prepared tapes, microphones and analogic self-made devices, Julie Rousse plays with a real-time modular platform on a laptop. But they both use some of the hundreds of fieldrecordings they have collected through the years and travels as a base to their creation.

Their sonic investigations have much to share : an unconditional love for fieldrecordings, improvisation and distortion. Their organized chaos brings out sincere emotions, oscillating between rhythms and abstraction.

Marta Zapparoli & Julie Rousse have met for the first time in 2008, on stage in the festival Sonification in Zagreb.
