Paul Changarnier, Nicolas Cousin and Alexandre Esperet are three young and curious musicians and they definitely express themselves in a wide range of performances. They like to collaborate with various artists to explore other artistic fields, including dance and theater, and create new projects where all disciplines merge into one creative expression. On the occasion of the GRAME Days 2015 in Lyon, SR9 Trio created its first show called MACHINE(s) with the composers Pierre Jodlowski and Benoit Montambault. The same year, the Trio is touring in France with the show C O R P O R E L S that reveals a mix of contemporary writing and other forms of living art related to motion.
SR9 Trio is sponsored by ADAMS percussions, RESTA-JAY percussions and regularly receives assistance from the Fondation Banque Populaire, SPEDIDAM, ADAMI, Bureau Export and Institut Français.
