QUATTROPHAGE

Their sound is characterized by a total spectrum of sounds. Screeching noises to a crash, the bubbling wave to murmur. Offering you a soundtrack and played by three members: Matthew Safatly cello and hacks of all kinds (he is one of the pillars of the Belgian collective One Moment Free Improv and played with Present, a progressiv band issued of famous Univers-Zero ), Olivier Hüe guitar and other astonishing DIY stringed instruments and Nicolas Lelièvre percussions (he is also playing with Carlos Zingaro, Ted Milton or Ghédalia Tazartès).

Quattrophage is scarce and precious to catch. Since the release of their first album Koinobios, in 1996 on mythical label Sordide Sentimental, they have been seen sharing stage with Faust, Charles Hayward, Lydia Lunch, Eddie Prévost, The Work, Noèl Akchoté or Anna Homler.

Quattrophage's music is "a genuine surprise" said Wire Magazine in September 2010. It is pretty difficult to talk about influences for such a band but for them, listening to This Heat, AMM, Naked City and the ensemble of OCORA label, for sure, was decisive to reach the working-out of their singular world, a real "cinéma pour l'oreille" calling at the same time images of rituals of an unspoiled island in Eastern Asia and lone contemplation of a disued industrial harbour in Northern areas of old Europe.
