Thomas Bonvalet has evolved his solitary project, L'Ocelle Mare since 2005, searching relentlessly through sound, in between great constraints and beautiful escapes. Guitarist in the duo Cheval de Frise, until 2004, he began his solo project by dissecting this instrument, then moved away from it, widening his horizons, gradually developing an instrumentarium meeting the demanding requirements of his sound research. The music laboratory which is L'Ocelle Mare is open to the four winds. There one can meet, for the duration of collective experimentations, the likes of Powerdove, Arlt, Radikal Satan, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Arnaud Rivière, Will Guthrie, Gaspar Claus, Daunik Lazro, Fred Jouanlong and Sylvain Lemêtre.
