ERYCK ABECASSIS & FRANCISCO MEIRINO  La Gueule Du Loup

Label : Fragment Factory (Ger) / Format : CD / 13.- Euros (E.U. shipping included)

 

"La Gueule Du Loup" explores raw improvisation in a crude, almost cruel manner. On this project the two musicians build musical pieces free of pre-existing structures  or recorded sounds. The electronic matrix arises from the modules and is immediately  propelled into the atmosphere. The two unpatched modular synthesizers first suggest  a virgin circuit, patches are build during the performance, during the composition.  Cosmetic memory plays a secondary role here, catapulted sytles shoving the idea of  unified styles, this is another memory, where the patch is a substitution  to ensure  a sound coherence of elements, tones, micro-tones, rhythms, order and chaos.

Recorded during a residency at GRM, Paris.
