Lampo is thrilled to bring Kristoff K. Roll to Chicago for their U.S. debut. The K. Rolls—named for Jean-Christophe Camps and Carole Rieussec—present a concert of detailed electroacoustics and post-musique concrète improvisations.
The French duo, based in Mont Blanc, employs a variety of samplers, an array of found objects and real-time electronics, and sounds collected throughout their travels in Central America and Africa. In their recorded projects, they build and then break down travel stories, blurring memories and foiling narrative expectations.
Jean-Christophe Camps (b.1964, Paris, France) and Carole Rieussec (b.1964, Tananarive, Madagascar) were born the same year but 5,000 kilometers apart. They studied acousmatics with Denis Dufour but at different times. Both began to work in electroacoustic music in the late 80s. Rieussec worked with Luc Ferrari from 1988 to 1995 in the studio La Muse en Circuit. In 1990, they ended up in the same group, Les Arènes du Vinyle, a Parisian improv sextet. They struck a professional and personal relationship almost immediately and formed Kristoff K. Roll. Collaborators include Xavier Charles, Catherine Jauniaux, Le Quan Ninh, Daunik Lazro and Martin Tétreault.
