Cellist Petit and poet Pierrepont traveled from East to West Coasts recording with various improvisers who play with Petit while Pierrepont reads one of his poems in French, and then as a non-French speaker reads the same poem.

Petit, Didier - Alexandre Pierrepont: Passages - A Road Record: Woodstock - New York - Chicago - Los (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    


"Lawrence Butch Morris developed the concept of "conduction" to account for a mode of Instant Composition based on the creative freedom of the players stimulated by the gestures of a central conductor. AP/DP, with this cd, invent the practice of musical transduction. Just like the French language is not "translated" but transducted into Kamau Daáood's unique prosody, DP's cello does not "translate" the playing of a thumb piano, an oud or a kora: all of these instruments, all of their phrasings electrify his playing from the inside, they are transducted into the cello. Similarly, DP's vocal cords do not "translate" what his fingers perform on the strings: both are electrified by a common current, alternating and direct. The astonishing fluidity of this complex meshwork of influences qualifies AP/DP as "Super-transductors": through this cd, one hears not only a whole family of giant cello players (Abdul Wadud, Robert Een, Tom Cora, Ernst Reijseger, Peggy Lee, Hank Roberts), but also a long history of lyrical surrealism (from Lautréamont to Henri Michaux), and the widest range of traditions in ethnomusicology (from Africa to the Middle East, through classical Europe and Amerindian singing)...

...Be prepared to be transducted, transformed and elated."-Yves Citton, from the liner notes
