Founded over 10 years ago, French contemporary jazz band OXYD – which boast four albums and several tours in France, Europe and abroad (China, India, USA, UK …) – has just recorded their fifth album. Over the course of their 10 years together, the five members had a large number of different artistic experiences, all of which participate in the richness of this new album entitled ‘The Lost Animals’. Alexandre Herer and Olivier Laisney, alongside Magic Malik developed a certain taste and ease for conceptual writing, rhythm and freedom in the playing. Julien Pontvianne continued his experiment with AUM Grand Ensemble, a project at the fringe of contemporary classical music, demonstrating mastery of minimalism and silence and thus encouraging Alexandre Herer to deepen his researches on computer music and micro-tone. Thibault Perriard was able to experiment more pop or electro aesthetics while Oliver Degabriele remains a sought-after jazz side-man and bassist, as well as an increasingly busy electric bassist on the European rock scene.

Alexandre Herer : Fender Rhodes
Julien Pontvianne : tenor saxophone
