[Eg0_221] Mesce Basse : Marée Haute

Mesce Basse gathers five female musicians interested by real time composition and transformation of sound textures. They like to play with styles and twist formats by mixing free improvisation, electro, spoken word, noise, ambient, and songs. Their soundscape is provided by a diverse setting of electronic, accoustic and DIY instruments.

We are very happy to release their first album Marée Haute, consisting of free contrasted and subtle tracks, presenting the band’s personal blend of delicate atmospheres, bursts of energy and surprising shifts.

[Eg0_205] M.A.K.T. Sono : ‘UNK

Since their beginnings in February 2018, M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul) have been experimenting with different set-ups and ways of playing. Amongst them, they like to play both on the same instruments / set-ups in the same time. It’s what they did on ‘UNK.0, an improvisation played on a no-input mixer. The other tracks of this EP are electronic compositions by Kecap Tuyul and Doedelzak using this improvisation as only sound material.

[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

[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.

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.
