Dafne Vicente-Sandoval, bassoon 
(1979, France)

After studying classical music, Dafne commits herself to contemporary music. She works with many European ensembles such as Ensemble Modern while putting a strong emphasis on personal projects: curating Tokyofeel workshops in Palais de Tokyo in 2007, current collaboration with composers in order to enrich the the solo repertoire of her instrument (Richard Barrett, Michael Maierhof, Hanna Hartman, Jakob Ullmann).

Her instrumental research, outreaching bassoon's sound carachteristics by a renewal of existing extended techniques, drove her naturally to improvisation. Her personal approach centres on the elaboration of a sonically acoustic universe, which finds itself close to electronics, aa well as on the microtonal complexity emanating from multiphonics. 

As an improviser, she plays in Axolotl with Xavier Lopez; she has played with musicians such as Ferran Fagés, Pierre-Yves Martel, Olivier Di Placido, Sébastien Cirotteau, among others.
