[Eg0_201] M.A.K.T. Sono : 11 songs

M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul)’s second album « 11 songs » is made of selected and edited improvisations recorded during the “M.A.K.T. Sono (sans sono)” residency at Le Magasin – Laboratoire de permanence chorégraphique (Mathieu Heyraud) – Saint-Etienne – November 4-9 2018.

Since their beginnings in February 2018  the duo has been working with modular set-ups that are likely to provoke unstable situations (like the soundbox, analog synthesizer and no-input mixer used in their first album “If you were a clarinet”).  This time they played with microphones, voices, analog synthesizers, and small battery-powered amplifiers, forming a modular set-up whose elements can be interconnected in various ways. They also experimented the integration of some song-material in their improvisations.
Magali Albespy made some videos of the residency, they can be viewed from her site

M.A.K.T Sono est 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. M.A.K.T. Sono expérimente des formes à la fois ludiques et méditatives entre le geste et le son, l’oreille et la main, l’activité et l’inactivité, la machine et le vivant.

Leur premier album if you were a clarinet a été publié par eg0cide productions.

[Eg0_178] M.A.K.T. Sono : If you were a clarinet

M.A.K.T. Sono – Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul – was created in february 2018 from a common taste for improvisation forms that rely more on indetermination and surprise than on the mastering of instrumental skills. They both use electronic tools whose complex settings can generate unexpected sound events and unstable situations. Their first album “If you were a clarinet” consists of 3 selections of slightly edited improvisations recorded in february and march 2018. These improvisation sessions were an opportunity for them to set up their working methodologies and to experiment playful and meditative dialogs between gesture & sound, activity and inactivity, machines and living creatures.
