Lynn Cassiers(born 1984, Antwerp) started lessons in music at the age of 14 and concluded her studies at the Royal Conservatory of Den Haag for jazz-vocals in 2006. Among her teachers and guestteachers were: Rachel Gould, John Ruocco, Jay Clayton, Bobby McFerrin, Deborah Brown, Ronan Guilfoyle, Billie Hart, Judy Niemack and many others.

Since 2009 she's teaching at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven.   

 

(Lynn Cassiers) She has been active in the jazz-scene as well as in the improvised music-scene accompanying herself with a small range of electronics. After several years of working with this set in different contexts, the idea arised that this language could be explored

 in the form of a solo-project.

So here The Bird, The Fish and The Ball. An exuse to fool around with bits of repertoire, pieces of texts, leftover loops and  out-of-control-gotten sounds , in order to create new soundscapes and small stories that will be improvised differently for every concert.

 

Currently, Lynn takes part in following bands: Riccardo Luppi's Mure Mure(Manolo Cabras and Joao Lobo), Lidlboj(Jozef Dumoulin, Bo van der werf, Eric Thielemans), Brussels Jazz Orchestra(project: Vliegen Tot In De Hemel) Octurn(Bo van der werf, Nelson Veras, Jozef Dumoulin, Gilbert Nuono, Jean-Luc Lehr, Chander Sardjoe), Wrapped In(Giovanni Di Domenico), Trouvé/Thielemans/Cassiers(Rudy Trouvé, Erik Thielemans), The Crappy Mini Band(Nico Roig, Pakyan Lau, Daysuke Takaoka, Giovanni Di Domenico), Basic Borg(Manolo Cabras, Matteo Carrus, Oriol Roca, Riccardo Luppi), Magine(Alexandra Grimal, Mathieu Calleja), MALM(Augusto Pirroda, Manolo Cabras, Marek Patrman)...
