Gilles Poizat is a musician and songwriter born in 1967 in Lyon. After classical trumpet studies and a PhD in ecology, he led a double life between scientific research and musical experiences. Among striking meetings in Lyon, Chicago, Arles and Conakry, Mazalda triggered his plunge into music. The power of bands makes him move intensely. The solo opens new fields he visits as a novice. He begins to sing, to write, finds again his teenage guitar, discovers elementary electronics, and relearns trumpet every day. Always attracted by new vivid experiences, he draws his own path and delivers atypical albums: Micro-vertige et l'expérience du flottement, Rev Galen (with Catherine Hershey), Horse in the house, Champignon flamme. Nowadays, he is preparing a new solo set of songs, plays with Spat'sonore, with Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp, and composes music for "La séance" - a choreographic piece by Benjamin Coyle.
