descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Comprised of twelve musical parts, Le Miroir des Ondes was composed around and from various news events that occurred between 1972 and 1989. With it, Michel Blanc wanted to translate into music his own feelings about some events that crossed his life at the time, with the idea to convey to the listener a sound space that could penetrate his/her imagination, whether or not he/she would be aware of the events. The choice of instrumentation for this project is based on major musical aesthetics of the time, namely: contemporary music, rock, concrete music and improvised music, and jazz derivatives."-Ayler

Artist Biographies:

"Guitarist Marc Ducret was born in Paris in 1957. A self-taught musician, he began working in various groups (dance and folk included), and in the studio, before reaching the age of 20. In 1986, he became a member of the first French National Jazz Orchestra. Also in the late '80s, Ducret led his own trio and toured Europe, Africa, and Asia. In 1991, he began working with Tim Berne and went on to play with Berne in Caos Totale, Bloodcount, and Big Satan. Ducret has several solo recordings to his credit, released on Berne's Screwgun label and the Winter & Winter label. In the late '90s, Ducret formed a tentet, Seven Songs, to explore music of the '60s."-Joslyn Layne
