Jean-Jacques Duerinckx a.k.a Maurice Charles JJ is a musician mostly interested in timbral diversities, unorthodox sounds, sonic pastes and contemporary approaches to music: intuitive by nature, he likes to dwell in a universe crowded with strange sound entities, in which sound becomes matter and matter becomes sound. Practicing the soprano and baritone saxophones, and influenced by Steve Lacy, Antony Braxton, John Surman, Hamiet Bluiett, Maurice Charles JJ’s meetings with saxophonists Lol Coxhill and later Michel Doneda were finally decisive – guiding his playing to a world where material sound and abstract melodies coexist and intermingle.
Maurice Charles JJ has always been sensitive to the visual arts. He is interested in electro-acoustic music, sound art and particularly to “soundscapes”. Also influenced by R. Murray Schafer, he collaborates with other forms of artistic expression by contribution with the unique color of his instrument’s own rare qualities which he also uses for his sound creations.
