Over 4 hours of improvisations were recorded over these two days in april 2010. We then trimmed the sound sequences and the silence, while keeping our specific interactions and phrasing of sounds between us and with the location. But sound is a flexible material and what remains of this session are frequencies that are like vestiges to be reinvented. To help this there is some 'presence'. The acoustic character and the intense immobility that fill the air of the chapel of Las Planques, in the dark and calm of the valley where the Viaur meanders. There are our bodies too, our gestures, the effort to walk among the chestnut trees carrying our equipment on our back to reach that place. Will all these implications be perceptible when playing this music ? The contents of this recording are somewhere between a transposition of reality and its recomposition. An 'in between' that leaves each listener free to project oneself and interfere with the music on this recording'. Recorded the 26th and 27th of april 2010 in the Chapel of Las Planques, Tanus, France by pierre-olivier boulant edited and mixed by nils ostendorf. mastered by pierre-olivier boulant. cover design by nicolas wiese & michael renkel based on postcard collages by Michel Doneda.
