Ludovic Beier Trio Feat. Gauthier Roubichou & les Faiseurs de Son
Speaking of the accordion, he likes to maintain that it is an instrument which still has plenty of scope for invention. Ludovic Beier is certainly one of those artists who rise to challenges with brio, greatly broadening its musical horizon. As an arranger, composer and experienced sound engineer, internationally renowned for his stage performances and prestigious partnerships, he has been performing regularly in the United States for around a decade.
In 2016, his meeting with Gauthier Roubichou and the « Faiseurs de son » on stage at the JZ festival in Shanghai (where he was representing « Jazz à Juan ») inspired him to continue this musical partnership in Juan this summer, and subsequently around the world. As a « French man in Shanghai », Gauthier Roubichou has been hopping between continents for more than fifteen years, in particular in Asia, especially China where he lived for twelve years and met his current associates. In 2014 he returned to settle in France, then in 2015 he founded the collective « Faiseurs de son » (soundmakers). The coherence and faultless technique of these seven closely linked musicians bring the trio a contagious energy and musicality, ensuring a good time for the audience.
