Rhizottome sprang from the encounter of two instruments : the sopranino saxophone of Matthieu Metzger and the bi-sonor chromatic accordion of Armelle Dousset. Inspired by neo-traditional song and more classical melodies, they developed their own repertoire between tradition and modernity, here and elsewhere, the familiar and peculiar. Through their capacity for listening and their ability to improvise, they create an energy that makes every dance possible.
A big dose of conservatoire with fun, as a good boy (classical saxophone, jazz, sol-fa, etc.),
Questions about what’s dealing before and between our ears (musicology studies, writings on Meshuggah),
Electronic tummys (and electrochocs…), some bitter and dark rock, self-taught recording techniques by musical necessity and emergency.
A lot of projects crawling in mind.
She is quite interested in every possible form of expression through art. After passing a Performing Arts degree in the cinema section, she joined the CNDC in Angers where she attended the Choreographic Artists II training.&nbs
At the same time, sh
e went on practising as a musician by creating the”Rhizottome” duo with the saxophonist Matthieu Metzger.
In 2009, she left for Japan to invent the performance “Haigorei” . Since then she keeps strong artistic relationship with Kyôto underground cabarets.
She is presently performing for a few choreographers in France (Alain Buffard, Bernardo Montet, Laurent Falguiéras) and playing accordion with the “Cut Paper People”.
Motion, listening, vulnerability…
Through this heterogeneous experience, which she is proud of, she has never stopped dealing with all this food for thought that can be found either in her dancing performances or woven in her musical creations.
