His other project Bidlo (first album produced by the English label Harmsonic) explores the outer limits of a hybrid and melodic electronica. As Mathias Delplanque, he creates sound installations and concrete or ambient pieces (the series “Ma chambre Quand Je N’y Suis pas”, “La Plinthe”, “L’Inondation”). His work was presented several times in galleries such as La Belle de Mai in Marseille, VKS in Toulouse, Oboro or La Fonderie Darling in Montreal, or Mercer Union in Toronto.
In 2004, Mathias Delplanque won the grant Les Inclassables, sponsored by the AFAA (Association Française d’Action Artistique) and went for a six-month residence in the Studio Cormier, in Montreal. Mathias Delplanque is also one of the founding members (along with Black Sifichi and Charlie O) of AAA Men, a trio of vocal and electronic improvisation.
