Sonic tinkerer and musical futurologist
Swiss music prize 2018
Pierre Audétat, who born in Lausanne in 1968, is a musician of many talents. He brings a highly inventive spirit to a very broad range of musical trends, be it as a pioneer of live sampling with Silent Majority, a jazz pianist appearing alongside such greats as Erik Truffaz, a club musician, or one half of the successful duo Stade with Christophe Calpini. From developing a visualisation of modes and scales at IRCAM Paris to creating witty audiovisual collages out of amateur videos on his Odeta.TV channel, this innovative artist is always on the lookout for his next challenge.
