Antoine Chessex, born 1980 in Vevey, is a multifaceted composer, sound artist and saxophonist, whose work assumes a wide diversity of forms blurring the boundaries between Noise, audio deconstruction and artistic research while transversally exploring sonic imaginations.

As a performer and member of the band Monno, he radically deterritorialized the tenor saxophone by playing his horn through distorting stacks of guitar amplifiers and PA systems. As a researcher, he addresses issues around Noise, marginal artistic practices, politics of sound and critical listening.

His works have been presented at numerous festivals around the globe such as the trasmediale festival Berlin or the Audio Art Festival in Krakow. He curates platforms and festivals of experimental sonics and is also the editor of the publication Multiple.
