Marc Maffiolo

He encountered saxophones first through sitting in a workshop repairing them for six years in the Grenoble region. During this period, he joined Micromégas, an amateur musical practice group directed by pianist François Raulin of the La Forge collective. Here he discovered improvisation in writing and all other forms of playing, meeting musicians such as Emmanuel Scarpa, Wolgang Puschnig, Marc Ducret, Christophe Monniot... A discovery that made him want to give a much more important place to musical practice.

Today, he lives in Toulouse. A "full-time" musician, he plays mainly bass saxophone (sometimes tenor). His main focus is the sounds of the instrument and their multiple facets, their voices.
