Benjamin Sauzereau is a french guitar player and composer living in Brussels. His music usually investigates the meeting points of composition, improvisation and arrangement.
Sauzereau has been leading for some years the following bands, each of them answering a desire to explore and write for a specific instrumentation, a specific sound, and a specific interaction between musicians: Les Chroniques de l’Inutile, Easy Pieces, Philémon, le chien qui ne voulait pas grandir, the Sauzereau/Roosens duo, and a solo program.
At Walter’s opening night Sauzereau will be performing a simple guitar solo: instrumental pieces, written and half improvised musical haikus, somewhere between Arvo Pårt, Duke Ellington, The White Stripes and Nino Rota.
