Half Evidence est un duo né en août 2012. L'un, Kecap Tuyul, joue de la guitare préparée, l'autre, Charles premier, divers objets et instruments faits mains-maison. Ils se retrouvent à l'occasion de sessions d'improvisation où chacun est à l'écoute de l'autre. Un dialogue s'établit alors entre eux, leurs albums en sont le fruit. Ils auraient été aperçus dans une forêt en train de jouer en rythme un tronc d'arbre et un ruisseau.

Des ailes dans le plomb (2016 - Eg0cide Productions - eg0_155)

Half Evidence (Kecap Tuyul and Charles premier) and Now Cut (Stéphanie Briand and Philippe Desclais) are two french bands with many common points: all their members are self-taught (and not really interested in learning how to play music “normally”), they like unexpected sounds and strange soundscapes, they use modified and/or home made instruments, they like playing with other improvisers / experimental bands. So it’s not surprising they decided to try to play together shortly after they discovered each other’s music. "Des ailes dans le plomb" was improvised and recorded during their first meeting in november 2014.

Entreciel (2015 - Eg0cide Productions - eg0_133)

Time after time, Half Evidence‘s sound becomes more incisive, and their playing more focused, alternating smoothly between meditative atmospheres and explosive intensities . Their new album Entreciel (consisting of 2 tracks improvised and recorded on 9 november 2014) features also a regular use of voices by both members Charles premier and Kecap Tuyul, which enhances the incantatory dimension of their music.

Rain Spirits (2014 - Eg0cide Productions - eg0_111)

Rain Spirits has been recorded during a rainy month of april 2013. Totally improvised as usual, the tracks show the most melodic side of the band  including some almost bluesy/jazzy atmospheres - but still within the band’s personal blend of peaceful drifts and grittier percussive/scrapping sounds.
