Artist Biographies:

"Sylvaine Hélary, enjoying a solid classical training, having plunged into the vertigo of improvisation with Bernard Lubat, this flutist is one of those soloists who establish a natural link between contemporary music, jazz and various currents of new music. Her curiosity leads her to projects that are often multidisciplinary, such as Spring.

She was part of the Surnatural Orchestra for ten years. She plays in duet with Noémi Boutin (Myssil and show young public Entre Chou and Loup), recently includes the new sextet of Marc Ducret (Chronicles of the frozen sea), Ensemble Dédales by Dominique Pifarély, Didier Levallet's quintet Croise), Ève Risser (White Desert Orchestra), Morgen Naughties (Tam De Villiers and Karsten Hochapfel), and Michel Édelin's quintet (Flute Fever).

She is invited to be part of the new creation of Alexandra Grimal (Steam over rice) and Jozef Dumoulin's next quintet. She collaborates with many musicians such as Robin Fincker, John Niekrasz, Marco Quaresimin, Nicole Mitchell, Edward Perraud, YJN (D. Yvinec), Dgiz, Dominique A and Fantazio. New York (Kris Davis, Matt Mitchell, Tim Berne, Dan Weiss, Ingrid Laubrock, Tom Rainey) and Chicago (The Bridge # 5 with Eve Risser, Mike Reed, Fred Lonberg-Holm). She realizes her dreams of writing and composition in her acoustic quartet Spring Roll (Antonin Rayon, Sylvain Lemêtre and Hugues Mayot), her trio (Antonin Rayon and Emmanuel Scarpa) and her new quartet Glowing Life Ray, Benjamin Glibert, John Niekrasz)."

"Julien Desprez is a musician and performer based in Paris. Jazz and rock were his early musical loves, but they evolved rapidly to free forms where body and space find their places through sound. As his practice progressed as well as his conception and approach to his instrument, the music and space changed. He is now considering the guitar more like a battery, an organ, a modifiable instrument deployable at will. Through a mix of actions on the instrument and a play of foot on effect pedals, taking inspiration from the technique of Tap Dance, it completely opened the possibilities, sound and physical environment of the instrument. This results in a practice where body is engaged to its fullest.

Now evolving between sound art, performance and contemporary improvisational music, his work today is centred around all the questions that exist within a stage space, through body, space, sight and light, but where the sound remains the central pillar. Julien is also a co-founder of the Collectif Coax, a music cooperative based in Paris and created in 2008, which was recently labelled "Compagnie Nationale" by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. He's also played with Charlie Haden, Mats Gustafson, Jeanne Added, Edward Perraud, Thomas Depourquery, François Jeanneau, Louis Sclavis, Stephane Payen, Guillaume Orti, Benoit Delbecq, Tortoise, Han Bennink, Hubert Dupont, Rob Mazurek, Jef Parker, Frank Vaillant, Gilles Coronado, Beniat Achary, Noël Ackchoté, David Grubbs, Doug Wamble, Marc Ducret, Sylvain Darrifourcq, Eve Risser, Mederic Collignon, Magic Malik, Emmanuel Bex et Hasse Poulsen."

"Sylvain Darrifourcq was born in 1979 in Orthez (France), he makes his apprenticeship as a classical percussionist. At 15 years Old, he drives himself definitively towards drums and play in his first rock group. He discovers lately jazz music and his meeting with Daniel Humair leads him definitively to a professional pathway.

Following up, he settles down in Toulouse and got into the CNR (academy of music) where he obtains his award. In 2003, he establishes his own group : L' Egotiste Sorel with which he makes his first record " life of Henry Brulard " (Aljama records) in tribute to the masterpiece life of Stendhal.

2004, will be a distinguished mark of the beginning Emile's Parisien Quartet. The group gives rise to a unique sound universe rewarded by the 2009 jazz victories.

Enthusiastic by the temporality questions, space and music breaks, nowadays, he composes today for these trios : IN BED WITH and IN LOVE WITH , he investigates both ambitious projects MILESDAVISQUINTET! and TENDIMITE (duo for percussion and prepared double bass), works beside new generations composers with which he creates musical plays (Le PANTIN, DANS L'ENTRE from Guillaume Hermen...).

2014, time for the DA-Festival creation, event co-managed with the double bassist and Elise Dabrowski singer. Creative music festival supported by Axel Cassel sculptor. This event has the aim to promote multiplicity forms, improvising as well as writing.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This music Is the result of a mystical experience lived by French pianist and composer Eve Risser when visiting Bryce Canyon, in Utah. The thousands of fairy chimneys reaching to the sky seamed to her "an enormous choir of singers ready to intone the most powerful of earthly songs", and that's why she decided to add a choir to her 10-piece orchestra for this astonishing album. "The human voice is very good at transmitting vibrations. In that calm and empty country I could feel very strongly the force and ages of the earth", Risser explains. But that's not the only uncommon factor you'll find here. Even the White Desert Orchestra isn't your average jazz ensemble. Part big band and part chamber orchestra, it combines aspects of two traditions, jazz and classical music, adding some aspects coming from rock (specially the energy) and other electric urban musical expressions (the large spectrum of colors). This includes the chosen instrumentation - you can expect saxophones, trumpet, trombone, guitar, bass and drums, but there's also a bassoon, four flutes, two clarinets and... a prepared piano.

Eve Risser's name is associated with the prepared piano, thanks to her solo CD Des Pas sur la Neige, considered by many worldwide critics as a masterpiece of the post-John Cage lineage of piano preparations, and also the one previously released in trio format, with Benjamin Duboc and Edward Perraud, En Corps. After five years of work with the National Jazz Orchestra of France (you may know the recording which is probably the most internationally recognized of this orchestra, "Around Robert Wyatt"), Risser felt the need to express herself with "a bigger sound", by creating her own large band and new music for it.

For this young and particularly inventive artist it was a logical step: the White Desert project is "a form of orchestration of the piano", being this one already an "orchestra-instrument". "Ten fingers, ten musicians", she says. That's the best phrase to define everything she does, alone or with all these people.

After presenting her orchestra on major creative jazz festivals in 2015 and 2016 (Jazzdor Strasbourg, Moers, Banlieues Bleues, Jazz in La Villette, Jazz em Augusto, Copenhagen Jazz) Eve Risser has been able to record this amazing music that we do present to you. No doubt that her work is going to receive a wide recognition..."-Clean Feed
