Trained both as a musician and a mathematician, Matthieu Amiguet took up programming as a hobby and somehow ended up making a PhD in computer science. He now works freelance - both as a musician and a developer. He is Artistic Director at Les Chemins de Traverse, jointly with Barbara Minder.
Les Chemins de Traverse is a collective of musicians, artists and researchers from a variety of backgrounds with a focus on sonic exploration and live performance. They cover a large musical territory from renaissance and baroque music to jazz, rock music and contemporary experimental noise. More often than not, they mix different styles and techniques - like in a weird chemical experiment that would produce nice colored fluids but might as well explode at any time.
