Vigroux, Franck: Triste Lilas (D'Autres Cordes)
Label: D'Autres Cordes    
Released in: France    


"Definitely and defiantly European and French, Lilas Triste (sorrowful lilacs), is the sort of quasi-free improv session that could only appear at this point in the 21st Century.

Based on the compositions and studio manipulations of fretless guitarist Franck Vigroux, who lives in Monastier, France, the CD blends elements of post-rock, electronica and free improv with reformatted sonic material and location recordings into nine distinctive tracks that could be termed improvised musique concrète. Furthermore Vigroux, who is a concert organizer as well as a member of world music and improv bands, fashions this audio creation using a minimum of tools. They are his regular and fretless guitars and laptop, Hélène Breschand's harp and voice, plus lesser contributions from a narrator, a vocalist, and, on one track, a visiting American guitar hero.

Breschand's experience encompasses interpretations of contemporary scores by Berio, Cavanna and Nunes, as well as performing improv with the likes of saxist Michel Doneda and guitarists Gérald Zbinden and Jean-Marc Montera. Because of this, she's quite familiar with adapting her axe's lush, all-encompassing glissandos from its 27 strings to the microtonal, quasi-slide vibratos of the fretless guitar, which Vigroux often extends with delay pedal, bottleneck and an E-bow.
