"Cubic Rubes" Official Video 

Louis de Mieulle/Matt Garstka - Cubic Rubes (Official Video)

Visuals: Dave Whyte

Matt Garstka: Rhythmic concepts, drums
Louis de Mieulle: Melodic content, electric bass, keyboards, editing
Jussi Reijonen: Guitar

Alex Syner: Mix. Rich Morales: Mastering.


Like the rest of the album, Cubic Rubes is based on Matt Garstka's drumming concepts and grooves. I almost "harmonized" the drum part by adding several melodies/layers on top of it. These melodies don't necessarily follow the 4/4 meter of Matt's part…

Soundchaser reborn as Moonsüün 

My old Parisian band SOUNDCHASER is reborn, under the name "MOONSÜÜN". Augustin d'Assignies (piano), Antoine Fournier (drums) and yours.

We started out in 2001 as a 70s-flavored electric jazz quintet with horns ("Chasin' The Sound", 2003, unreleased), then morphed into a math-jazz-groove trio ("Groovechaser", 2006, [ikoz]), to finally reach our current state: acoustic minimal improvisation.

The original influences were electric Miles Davis, then Meshuggah. Today it is The Necks and the American…

OTS review @CTEBCM? 

First review of the new EP, courtesy of Dave Tremblay @Can This Even Be Called Music?


"This pair’s second collaboration, the sequel to the amazing Dual EP, is quite different. This time around, the two astoundingly creative musicians take progressive rock and jazz fusion into more synth-heavy territory. Without mentioning the overused “synthwave” tag, Outside the Square successfully demonstrates some sweet electro-jazz fusion not unlike Tigran Hamasyan (imagine him playing keyboards instead of grand…

DUAL by Dave Tremblay - "Can this even be called Music?"

Bassist and composer Louis de Mieulle‘s album with drummer extraordinaire Matt Garstka is the underground modern jazz album you didn’t know you needed. Dual is based off of Matt’s beats – whether they are improvised or not is unknown…

New EP "DUAL" released! 

The collaborative project between Matt and I is finally out!

"Dual" is an adventurous set of through-composed tunes, mixing math-rock grooves and neoclassical polyphony.

Matt composed, developed and recorded (September '15 in Brooklyn) his drum concepts first. It involves polymeters, equivalence, variations, etc... but I'd rather skip any technical explanation for now (it breaks the charm + bores most people (including myself! But I admit my younger self used to love that))

I then analyzed and organized…
