Biography

« BINARY AUDIO MISFITS » is the fruit of a musical meeting on My Space
between two highly original genres from different worlds: the French rock
group Expérience (founded in Toulouse, 2000) and the Texan rap
collective The Word Association (founded in San Marcos, USA, 2002).
Fall 2007, after discovering them on myspace, the French invite the
Americans to sing on one of their tracks and the result is so exciting that
they decide to continue the collaboration. After an exchange of audio files
over the Internet, they finally meet late 2007 during the recording of
Expérience's fourth album at Steve Albini's Electrical Studio, Chicago.
During one year, they continue to write songs over the internet.
In the beginning of 2009, the french venue La Cartonnerie, in Reims, invites
them for a residency and a gig. This is the beginning of the BAM project
LIVE.
