Founders of 19 MARS, Jérôme Mayer and Farida Amadou create this label in order to share their experiences and their visions of artists who are now producers.
Bass player, Farida develops both in solo and in many collective projects a path with multiple origins in the vast fields of free improvisation, integrating musical, choreographic, poetic and visual arts scenes. Nourished by deliberately new experiences and situations chosen to be unique, her music evolves in sound performance. Her connections with artists, producers and distributors of a large international experimental music scene bring her projects to the present and to the future in close proximity on a global scale.
Jérôme makes films and videographic devices where time, the here and now hold the key. Alone or in collaboration, he initiates curatorial projects exploring the singular fringes of emerging art with partners and artists and curators for whom performative practice plays an essential role. Linked to independent European dissemination spaces, involved in cross-border networks, he also teaches in Fine Arts in Liège.
Since May 2019, Farida and Jérôme have been developing the performative and filmic work Y- [u] together.
