Peter Jacquemyn (1963, Schaarbeek) is a well-known figure on the European improvisation scene. Jacquemyn - a self-taught musician - workd with Peter Kowald, Fred Van Hove, Joëlle Leandre, Phil Minton, Takashi Yamane and Evan Parker to name just a few. His style is very energetic and spectacular. Maybe his qualities as a judoka or his work as a sculpturor with chainsaw has something to do with this? He has developed his own style of playing in which all kinds of objects and 2 to 3 bows are used at the same time. One of his key signatures in his powerful performances is Khoomi - Mongolian deep throat singing.

In 1999 they recorded a first album together and immediately received the annual prize from the International Society for New Music. Their last recording (el NEGOCITO Records) also got appraisal and 4 stars from the authority of All About Jazz.
