In 2010, I’ve met by coincidence in a bar in Kyoto , very late at night , Alphabet avenue, on the little typically kyotoite street Ponto cho, ryotaro.
Over drunk , I told about my music and share at that time my myspace page and my email address.
I talked to him as I remember between the rhum tsunami in my head about make performance on a multiphonic diffusion system , composed of 4 speakers.
Even the impossiblity to read my email, Ryotaro reached me and invited to play at UrBANGUILD.
We used guitar amps to build the system and 4ievan was born.
After this first performance , Ryotaro invited me to play quite regularly, that was the occasion, to listen , meet incredible artist and performances.
In 2013, ryotaro asked me to organize the "UrBANGUILD ieva Night" event. Instead of inviting different band , based on my 4 speakers and improvistaion performance I’ve done for several years there, I push the concept further, inviting the french conductor, composer and percussionist Yannick Paget.
Placing different musicians (piano, cello, accordeon, percussions) in the whole room,
I worked with Yannick on the scenario that he transforms in block of melodies ( in some way like my use of field and matter recordings ) between scores music and improvisation. We performed 3 acts with the second totally improvised.
Thanks to ryotaro who trust me from the beginning and made one of my dream real to mix improvisation, acousmatic, classical and experimental communicate together.
What would become ens∅ Watt was born.
