ABOUT NOVA MATERIA

Nova Materia is a duet formed by Caroline Chaspoul from France and Eduardo Henriquez from Chile. With them, nothing is usual: their instruments are steel tubes, iron plates, stones that get scraped or projected unto metal surfaces, guitars positioned horizontally and struck with mallets, as well as an array of electronic gear. They sing, chant or whisper mysterious lyrics and slogans (in French, English, Spanish and in imaginary tongues), which contribute to creating their own primal and futuristic mythology.

Another notable aspect of the band’s work is their multimedia activity. They’re regularly composing music for feature films (a.o. by Nabil Ayouch, Gael Garcia Bernal etc) and for brands. They recently collaborated with renowned writer Tristan Garcia to create a literary/musical 60-minute piece for national radio France Culture, entitled From The Stones’ Viewpoint.
