one long powerful tenor breath

2023 - Foce, Lugano TI

As a performer, he plays the tenor saxophone through distorting stacks of guitar amplifiers to create monolithic walls of electrified textures and intense live actions as documented on Subjectivation.
As a researcher, Chessex engages critically with discourses and positions within the sound studies field. More specifically, his research focuses on the possible relations between sound, listening, artistic practices and cultural analysis.

Chessex is a founding member of the band Monno with whom he toured extensively. He also curates platforms and festivals for adventurous sonic practices and is the editor of the publication Multiple.
