d’incise – Laurent Peter
Swiss music prize 2019
Laurent Peter was born in Geneva in 1983. In his youth, he was drawn to the reggae, dub and drum ‘n’ bass played over sound systems in the city’s squats, and began making such music with the collective Audioactivity. Adopting the name “d’incise”, he discovered more experimental approaches. He performs both as a solo artist and with a frequent partner, Cyril Bondi, exploring the conceptual bonds that connect dub, electro-acoustic, improvised, composed, minimalist and traditional social music. The duo’s projects include La Tène, Diatribes, and Insub Meta Orchestra. Peter also records techno music under the name “Tresque”.
