"Peter Jacquemyn (1963° schaarbeek) moves easily between the visual arts and music. As a sculptor he assaults tree trunks with axe and chainsaw. His concerts are just as spectacular: with unbridled energy he lovingly wrestles his double bass.It is a battle in which all means are fair: bows (1, 2 or 3), dented soda cans, plastic bags, crumpled paper, mutes, horns, retuned strings,...

All of this ranges Peter Jacquemyn among Belgium's most interesting improvisers with a very justified international reputation."
