About Michel Banabila

Dutch composer and sound artist Michel Banabila has produced a vast discography of music encompassing tape loops, Fourth World fusions, found sound experiments, and neo-classical pieces, in addition to film and theatrical work. Since the release of his first LP, Marilli, in 1983, he's issued dozens of recordings, including collaborations with Robin Rimbaud (Scanner), Machinefabriek, Bill Laswell, Jeff Greinke, and many others. The more groove-based VoizNoiz: Urban Sound Scapes (1999) represented some of his most accessible work, and was followed by two sequels, including a collaboration with Dutch jazz artist Eric Vloeimans. Since 2005, much of Banabila's music has been issued on his own Tapu Records, though releases have also appeared on Bureau B, Knekelhuis, and other labels. Several collaborations and stand-alone pieces were collected on Singles (2020-2022).
