Cyril Secq learnt guitar lonely, attracted by the "noise/experimental" range of use, then he went to other instruments (piano, harmonium, rhodes, analog synthetiser, sound objects). He started the Astrïd band in 1997, with Yvan Ros. From the begining of the 2000’s, he started to produce and record albums and has played with different artists (Mathias Delplanque, Floating roots orchestra, Charles-Eric Charrier «oldman», That Summer, Sylvain Chauveau, Thousand and Bramier, Orla Wren).

Sylvain Chauveau, member of ensemble 0 and Arca, has made solo records on labels such as FatCat, Sub Rosa, Type, Les Disques du Soleil et de l'Acier, Brocoli, Flau, Nature Bliss, Creative Sources: minimal, quiet compositions for acoustic instruments, electronics, and voice. He performs worldwide and creates sound installations for exhibitions. He also makes soundtracks for feature films and dance shows.
