Recorded at Studio Pyjama in France, on January 23rd, 2015 and February 3rd, 2015 by Jean-Luc Foussat .

"Jean-Marc Foussat is one of the most inventive and important electroacousticians on the European avant-improv scene today. Fred Marty is a double bassist of distinction. MarsaFouty is the combination of the two together.

Concerts (FOU CD 011) consists of two long live performances of the duo at the beginning of this year. It is a explorative program of subtlety and wide sonic expanse. Foussat generates a soundscape of altered acoustic and electronic events via analogue synth and other devices. Marty responds with bowed and pizzicato bass improvisations that extend the panorama and create independent lines and textures.

The result is live new music in the advanced realm, more so than "jazz" per se. These two performances bring us two contrasting essays in timbre and flow, "psychoactive" two-way interactions that give the listener a sort of narrative in abstractions, a story of a non-verbal situational sort. As such this is an excellent contribution to the now decades-old tradition of spontaneous new music compositions that we can trace back to MEV, AMM, Il Gruppo, and perhaps some of Stockhausen's group electro-improvisations from the '70s.

MarsaFouty go their own way with this "tradition" and give us a satisfying and fascinating narrative panorama. If you are not familiar with this sort of new music, this may startle you, as any of it would. But it is well inspired and effective, poetic and dynamic whether you are an experienced listener in this realm or a beginner. It gives you a good start if you are new to it all; it provides you with a fine addition if you are an acolyte. Happy listening!"-Grego Applegate Edwards


Artist Biographies:

"Jean-Marc Foussat (born March 19, 1955 in Oran ) is a French composer and improvisational musician ( guitar, piano, live electronics ).

Since the mid-1970s, Foussat had belonged to groups such as Lézard Marçio, in which he contributed the sounds of concrete music with magnetic tapes. In 1981, he finished his first solo album, Abattage, which was released in 1983. In the ensemble Marteau Rouge (with the guitarist Jean-François Pauvros and the drummer Makoto Sato), he also collaborated with Evan Parker. Together with the saxophonist Sylvain Guérineau, he formed the duo Aliquid, which also appeared with Joe McPhee ( Quod, 2014). In addition to soloprograms, he also starred with Noël Akchoté / Roger Turner, Samuel Blaser, Émilie Lesbros, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Sophie Agnel, Daunik Lazro and numerous other musicians, as well as the Fortuna 21 Octet of Raymond Boni and the department of education psychique on."

"Fred Marty was born in Blaye (Gironde) in 1970. After studying classical bass studies, he devoted his work to improvisation and experimentation of various game modes on bass. He strives to develop a personal language, inspired by everyday sounds, making some forget the bass itself (distorted sounds, harmonics "gaps" in incomplete or misleading spectrum percussion sounds without specific height, sounds The rubbing of the fingers or the hand on the body of the double bass). He also modifies the timbre by inserting between ropes of wooden or metal rods. Each part of the body of the double bass becomes an instrument of its own.

Thus, co-creation he also collaborated in multidisciplinary projects combining dance, music, and video playback, including Anne Ropers collective recidiva in UNICA, a project calling itself "night moves" around the collection of poems of the same Title of Henri Michaux, or with Bérengère Altieri-Leca in the duo OKAMI.

Fred Marty has played with Yuko Oshima, Ai Watanabe, Birgitte Lyregaard, Yoko Arai, Frederic Blondy, Edward Perraud, Itaru Oki, Claude Speaks, Xavier Lopez, Michel Doneda Sebastien Bouhana, Marcos Fernandes, Usui Yasuhiro, Alvise Sinivia Michael Nick, Daunik Lazro, Isabelle Duthoit, Benoit Cancoin, Matsumoto Kenichi, Jean Marc Foussat, Yoko Arai, Eric Dambrin John Cuny, Jean Brice Godet, Alexandre Bellenger, Nush Werchowska Mathieu Garrouste Pascal Marzan, Cyprien Busolini, Nicolas Souchal, Deborah Walker, Patricia Bosshard, Jean-Marc Foussat, Yoko Miura, Francesco Pastacaldi Richard Comte, Hideo Ikegami, Ugo Boscain and works with dancers of butoh Gyouhei Zaitsu, Maki Watanabe and dancer Bérengère Altieri-Leca.

Since 2012 he is a member of ONCEIM, an orchestra conducted by Frédéric Blondy."
