Johann Bourquenez

Hello !

Short Bio

Johann Bourquenez, based in Geneva since 2007, is the pianist and principal composer of the trio Plaistow, in which he developed a unique approach of the instrument, playing unusual harmonic drones and other extended techniques. He created and composed for the large choral Le Grand Choeur Noise, and plays piano solos. For In Girum, Johann decided to use solely electronic devices.

«They make you think about sound and about time. They can sweep you away with a burst of lyricism or pin you to the spot. They’ve been one of the best surprises of this year’s London Jazz Festival.» - Richard Williams (about Plaistow, 2014)
