Michel Delville (born 1969, Liège, Belgium) is a Belgian musician, writer and critic.


Michel Delville teaches literature and comparative literature at the University of Liège, where he directs the Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Poetics. He is the author of books pertaining to comparative poetics and interdisciplinary studies (see the selected bibliography below). His awards and distinctions include the 1998 SAMLA Book Award, the Choice Outstanding Book Award, the Léon Guérin Prize, the 2001 Alumni Award of the Belgian American Educational Foundation, the rank of Officer of the Order of Leopold (Belgium) I (2009), and the 2009 Prix Wernaers pour la recherche et la diffusion des connaissances.

Delville has been performing and composing alternative music since the mid-1980s. His most recent projects include The Wrong Object, douBt, Machine Mass feat. Dave Liebman, Alex Maguire's Electric 6tet, the New Texture Pan Tonal Fellowship (under the direction of Stanley Jason Zappa), the Ed Mann Project, and Belgo-Dutch combo the Moving Tones. He has played and recorded with Dave Liebman, Elton Dean, Annie Whitehead, Harry Beckett, Richard Sinclair, Ed Mann, Alex Maguire, Dagmar Krause, Benoît Moerlen (who joined the Moving Tones for a series of gigs in 2008), Tony Bianco, Karen Mantler, Geoff Leigh, Markus Stauss, Guy Segers, Klaus Blasquiz, Gilad Atzmon, Dirk Wachtelear and others.

In 2009 he teamed up with Alex Maguire and Tony Bianco to create a new power-trio, douBt. Their debut release, Never Pet a Burning Dog, featured ex-Camel, Caravan and Hatfield and the North member Richard Sinclair on guest vocals and bass. In 2010 he was invited to join and coordinate Comicoperando, a tribute to the music of Robert Wyatt whose line-up includes Dagmar Krause, Richard Sinclair, Annie Whitehead, Gilad Atzmon, Alex Maguire, Chris Cutler, John Edwards and Cristiano Calcagnile. In 2011 the band toured Europe and Canada as a sextet in 2011. In 2012, Delville collaborates with the international collective 48 Cameras and Robin Rimbaud. In 2013, Dave Liebman joins Machine Mass, an electro-jazz band founded with Tony Bianco in 2010.
