[Eg0_194] Onde Poussière: del_din04

After a web collaboration (album Imperceptible,) Onde Poussière return to free improvisation with their 4th album del_din04, made of sessions recorded on 25th and 26th september 2018. For this occasion, they once more experimented with new set-ups, this time with a focus on lo-fi sound. Doedelzak played laptop amplified with cheap computer speakers and occasionnaly flute, while Kecap Tuyul used his z(xW+yW), a low-tech modular system based on tiny battery-powered guitar amplifiers and contact microphones. Through this new change they continue to explore sonic material and techniques that are likely to cause various accidents and usually unwanted sounds, which are an essential part of the ground on which the band build its improvised soundscapes.

Onde Poussière have used the same set-up in a live performance that took place in Paris on september 26th and can be heard on the duo’s freshly launched bandcamp page. For their next live performance (Tiasi, Paris, 9 janvier 2018), they will try something new again, probably focusing on acoustic instruments with occasional lo-fi amplification.

[Eg0_193] Failure Circle : Frozen Clinamen #2

Frozen Clinamen is serie of works by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) started on autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions : all the sounds included in these works are recordings of moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #2  was recorded and mixed between april and august 2018.

Methodology
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.

[Eg0_192] Anastasia Vronski : Estrangements (volume1)

Anastasia Vronski is a versatile experimental musician from Perm, Russia. Since years she has been creating an impressive and quite diverse body of work. Many of her tracks can be classified as “drone “or “noise”, but they always have a specific, often intriguing qualities. Above all, she’s not an artist who will do the same twice, and maybe that’s why some of her pieces are sometimes self-published isolately. Since we thought many of them deserved more exposure, we decided to make a selection of such works in a compilation album : Estrangements, that will be published in two volumes. The first volume gathers tracks composed in 2013 & 2014 (selected with the artist’s approval) that seem to share some kind of minimalist mood, although they are very diverse. For each of them, Vronski has written a few words about the specific methodologies and ideas (see below) involved in the composition. But this doesn’t make her music less mysterious. Each track seems inhabited by a mysterious and poetic spirit whose intrinsic qualities will appear to attentive listeners even without reading anything. The 2nd volume will be published in 2019

More info about the tracks provided by the artist :
1. Colors & Shapes (2013)
I made this track using basic sounds like sine waves and white noise to give the idea of colors and shapes, like a sonic abstract graffiti.
2. Zombie (2014)
I made part of this track by dancing… I played drum, tambourine, shaker and electric bass and then looped it. Then I taped a contact mic to the floor and danced like a zombie to the loop, like when they make crackling sounds in the movies. I added another layer of noise like a soundtrack, then voice. I wanted the track to be very natural, involving body movements like a zombie ritual.
3. Teardrops Condenser (2014)
I wanted to paint a minimal landscape by “condensing” the microscopic events that take place through the cables of my guitar pedals. There is no actual guitar involved in this composition and minimal interaction. It is the gear taking a life of its own.
4. Debris Install (2013)
Composition for radio, piano and voice – referencing respectively Keith Rowe, Cecil Taylor and Kurt Schwitters. The duration and number of occurences for each instrument is written down, while the distribution of sounds was picked randomly in the spirit of John Cage’s works with the I-Ching.

Bobby two (Alexandre Bellenger et Arnaud Rivière)

http://abworks.org/bobby-two/
Ces deux improvisateurs marquants de la scène expérimentale parisienne ont commencé à jouer en duo au début des années 2000. Ils ont aussi formé les trio BOBBY MOO avec le joueur de sampler japonais Miho) et BTR avec le légendaire percussionniste londonien Roger Turner. Après quelques années d’interruption, ils sont de retour depuis l’automne 2018 avec toujours autant d’inventivité et d’énergie.

 

Federico Rodriguez (guitare) et Niels Mestre (guitare)

Duo inédit de deux musiciens passés par le jazz et pratiquant entre autres l’impro libre.

Federico Rodriguez est un improvisateur et compositeur colombien. Ses performances pour guitare et voix sont une exploration sonore en résonance avec l’univers drone/minimaliste de LaMonte Young, Phil Niblock ou encore Oren Ambarchi et Jim O’Rourke.

Niels Mestre

Guitariste, improvisateur et composteur
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNb9whRGIqGf_cQfkIi3x4w/videos
https://nielsmestre.bandcamp.com/
Le duo deviendra peut-être un trio si Nicolas Souchal (initialement au programme) peur finalement participer malgré quelques empêchements.

Nicolas Souchal est un trompettiste français, actif dans le jazz contemporain et les musiques improvisées. Il est reconnu pour son sens de la construction dans l’improvisation, sa sonorité expressive, et son jeu incluant les techniques étendues de l’instrument. Sa démarche emprunte à des musiciens comme Don Cherry, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Axel Dörner, ou encore Daunik Lazro. Depuis 2010, on peut l’entendre dans différentes formations de la scène parisienne : Pavillon Rouge (Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Matthias Mahler, Jean-Marc Foussat), ARBF & les Hmadcha d’Essaouira (rencontre entre big band free jazz et musiciens soufis marocains, direction Yoram Rosilio), Quintet Cuir (musique improvisée épidermique, avec Jean-Brice Godet, John Cuny, Yoram Rosilio, Jérôme Fouquet)

M.A.K.T. Sono (sans sono)

MAKT Sono issu de la rencontre de Magali Albespy et Kecap Tuyul autour d’une appétence commune pour des pratiques d’improvisation laissant la part belle à l’indétermination. Leur collaboration repose sur l’exploration de diverses configurations de jeu avec un appareillage électronique modulaire propice à la génération de situations instables et faisant vaciller la notion de maîtrise instrumentale. Ce concert sera pour eux l’occasion de présenter quelques unes des voies qu’ils explorent depuis l’automne : jeu sur de nouveaux dispositifs lo-tech modulables, intégration de nouveaux types de matériau dans leurs improvisations.

Leur premier album, “If you were a clarinet” est disponible sur eg0cide productions.

[Eg0_191] InO – Magali Albespy : 2017/2018

InO is the acronym for “Interpenetration and non-Obstruction”, one of the principles that John Cage used to create music that was anarchic (against the structures of most of musical traditions) and in the same time encouraging new possibilities of coexistence. Magali Albespy, a french artist rooted in dance and performance, took inspiration from this for a methodology of real time composition dance practice focused on sound. “2017-2018” is made of excerpts of the sessions recorded during the first year of these weekly events.

These recordings can be considered as documents of this practice. Indeed they are such documents, especially for people who were involved in the sessions. But we think that they also have a fragile and surprising beauty of their own that deserve an independent life for your listening. This unexpected musicality has been discreetly stressed by the editing choices, which we can consider like a delicate work of “a posteriori composition”, a work made with respect for the uniqueness of each sound event and their kind of abstract narrative power. That’s why we hope that you will enjoy these atypical works.
