François Mellan

Paris - France

For many years, François Mellan played trumpet in unknown funk combos, big bands and ephemeral festival brass bands. Passionate about sounds and mutes, from Cootie Williams to Lester Bowie, he decides however to "change of dimension" by switching to the susaphone. Exploring this instrument with underrated qualities, he keeps his love of expressive sounds, old swing and free music...

François runs his own project, a kind of brass band called Illustre Klaxon, and is a member of the Anti Rubber Brain Factory, directed by bassist Yoram Rosilio. Involve in the collective Le Fondeur de Son, he participates, as a musician and as an organizer, in numerous free improvisation meetings in France and Europe.
