BANDWIDTH consists of David Vilayleck aka Ayankoko and Mathieu Garrouste who practice a radical sound manipulation based on sound extractions with laptop, turntables, electric guitar, filters and other potential sound sources. Noisiness on low volume and almost minimal, its principles are sonic radicalism. Very fond of playing with guests, in this recording (from October 2011) they are joined by Amsterdam based austrian drummer Gerri Jäger (Knalpot, The Black Napkins) to create abstract landscapes inspired by post-industrial.

Gerri picked up the drums when he was 9 years old. After some brass-band and grunge-metal teenage years he studied jazz at the Conservatories of Innsbruck and Amsterdam. Through years of playing in numerous different bands from free-jazz to alt-rock, playing modern dance-improvs, experimental electronic club music and improvisation, Gerri developed into a flexible listening musician, looking for ways to expand boundaries in music. Current bands include Knalpot, EKE, The Black Napkins, Dutch and Whale Oil. He has performed a.o. with Jozef Dimoluin, Franz Hauzinger, Ron Anderson, Wolter Wierbos, Han Bennink, Ab Baars, Achim Kaufmann, Luc Ex, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, Colin Stetson, Shazad Ismaily, Marc Ducret, Frank Möbus, Terrie Ex. Gerri has toured throughout Europe, USA and Brazil, and has released albums on Rat Records, Eat Concrete, Red Note, PAO Records and Cuneiform.


A contemporary ambient noise music akin to noise and shouting, where irritating bursts meet devastated post-industrial landscapes. a human hand can sometimes be felt.

With laptop, tapes and drums with electronics, these improvisations are inspired by digital noise, rather than analogue synths. it's not electronic music, but sounds based on interruption.
A bandwidth of a hail of information, encoded and compressed, made audible and manipulated, but very similar to the original signal.
