French artist Cécile Schott aka Colleen is fearless in her willingness to explore new sounds and new ways of creating music as a solo performer. Over the course of seven critically acclaimed albums released between 2003 and 2021, Colleen consistently reinvented herself, first by taking acoustic instruments out of their usual context and pushing the boundaries of their playability, then through avant-pop electronic explorations.

With compositions ranging from the mysterious and contemplative to kinetic and playful, the Thrill Jockey recording artist has given more than 230 concerts across Europe, the US, Japan, Brazil and Singapore.

Colleen’s growing passion for synthesis, bolstered by her collaborations with synth manufacturer Moog, have led to her 8th album Le jour et la nuit du réel, to be released on Thrill Jockey on 22.9.23. Built as a suite of songs, the artist’s first double album is also her first purely instrumental work since 2007, and aims to translate through a myriad of sound transformations the complexity of our relation to reality, and its psychological mutations through the cycles of day and night.


Margaux Gazur
As a sound artist, Margaux explores possibilities of sounds, using unconventional instruments, everyday objects and field recording to create a rich and textured soundscape.Using everyday objects and sounds from surrounding environments allow her to create music that is both deeply personal and universally resonant. Margaux started to work with field recording to capture her daily life in Hanoi as a sonic memory. She began by making soundscapes for her dad’s martial art videos before developing her own immersive projects with recordings from those sessions, including the sounds of traditional martial art weapons and instruments used for celebrations.
