Guionnet, Jean-Luc & Eric La Casa: Home: Handover [4 CD SET] (Potlatch)

Label: Potlatch    
Released in: France    


"In 2010, Jean-Luc Guionnet and Éric La Casa were invited by Arika to the Uninstal festival in Glasgow (Scotland) to carry out a series of recordings with some inhabitants of this city, in their home spaces.

Based on predefined rules, including the single-sequence shot as a recording method, these people became the actors in a story about their everyday life. Guionnet and La Casa considered this work as a composition under the form of a score with four phases.

1st phase: APARTMENT Recording of Apartment I II III IV
Lisa Peebles, Tim Nunn, Zoe Strachan and Silvia Sellitto
Each inhabitant (four in total) talks about his favorite music in his favorite room of his apartment.

2nd phase: CONCERT Public interpretation of Apartment I II III IVat Tramway (2010).
Voices: Aileen Campbell, Gael Leveugle.
Musicians: Lucio Capece, Neil Davidson and Seijiro Murayama.

3rd phase: HOUSE Domestic interpretation of Apartment I II III IV
Keith Beattie, in his house.

4th phase: SYNTHESIS Mixing of Phases 1 2 3 of each Apartment

This process was carried out four times and results in a 4xCD boxset."-Potlatch Records



"Jean-Luc Guionnet is an elusive figure. A Parisian artist active in many fields (music, visual arts, cinema), he has mostly worked in electro-acoustics but also has a career in free improvisation, playing alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, church organ, and piano. He has collaborated with Éric La Casa, Éric Cordier, and André Almuro on tape music. His main free improv and jazz projects include Hubbub, Schams, Return of the New Thing, and the Joe Rosenberg quintet.

Guionnet made scientific studies before shifting to fine arts. He studied musique concrete under Iannis Xenakis and Michel Zbar, but also pursued studies in philosophy (esthetics) with Geneviève Clancy. His first works date from the late '80s and are mostly collaborations with filmmaker André Almuro (some have been issued by Ground Fault). Then came a lasting partnership with electro-acousticians Éric Cordier and Éric La Casa. Together they wrote the series "Afflux." Guionnet also produces the Ateliers de Création Radiophoniques ("creative radio workshops") for France Culture. His eclecticism has kept him at bay of recognition -- because to the eye of the press it strips him from some credibility and because running careers in philosophy (he was co-director for the review Terre des Signes from 1993 to 1996), painting (he exhibited from 1992 to 1997), and music simultaneously tends to be time-consuming.

The release of an eponymous CD by Dan Warburton's free jazz quartet Return of the New Thing in 1999 on the respected label Leo Records introduced Guionnet to a wider audience. Since then his activities as an improviser have constantly stretched toward the fringes of experimentalism. His participation in the French-Swiss group Hubbub and his duo with guitarist Olivier Benoit (&Un, 2002) follow the school of Berlin reductionism."
