Foussat, Jean-Marc: Nouvelles (Potlatch)
Label: Potlatch    
Released in: France    


"This very strange CD-ROM-enhanced recording combines 20 tracks of what can only be called deliciously weird music coupled with surreal visual images. The Potlatch label is recognized for its quality freestyle recordings, most of which embody at least some jazz influences, however minimal. This one detours, in that the relationship to any genre of jazz is nearly nonexistent, though the improvisational adventurousness is extraordinary. The mostly short individual pieces were composed and arranged by Jean-Marc Foussat between 1985 and 2001, and feature wicked combinations of voices, guitar, synthesizers, and pianos, with occasional bass, percussion, accordion, and trumpet. There is a simplicity to it all, though as a whole it has the feel of a William Burroughs cutup. The liner notes are in French only, but this is a project that stands on its own, without elaboration. There are few signposts and little to prepare the listener for the unusual noises and slowly changing timbres, which at times are creatively grating. The metamorphosing color artwork sometimes invites viewer interaction and is an interesting touch that enhances the experience. While this is likely to have limited appeal, it is a project worth exploring for those seeking unique visual and aural challenges."-Steven Loewy, AllMusic
