Pascal Battus in a series of compositions realized with recordings of cymbals, using specific techniques that enable him to sustain the sound and allow pure frequencies to emerge as he develops each piece as extended audio journeys based on improv and organized sound.

Battus, Pascal: Simbol / L'Unique Trait D' Pinceau (Herbal International)

Label: Herbal International    
Released in: Malaysia    


"Simbol is a composition realised with recordings of cymbals, using specific techniques which enable me to sustain the sound and allow pure frequencies selected from the cymbals' upper partials to emerge.

The pieces on L'unique trait de pinceau are close in spirit to improvisation, recordings often made at home in the heat of discovery, with no particular project in mind. Instant writings, unrefined yet complete and more or less unadulterated.

Simbol and L'Unique Trait de Pinceau differ at both the formal and conceptual level - though chance plays an important role in both - but are in the same heuristic vein regarding the notion of sounding gesture and the question of the instrument. A whole host of tools, detournes, taken apart or extended, pushed to their limits, their identity as instruments no longer clear.

Operational chains often present themselves in the act of playing, which, by dint of their complex synergy and the innumerable parameters involved, provide a margin of indeterminacy sufficiently wide to cause the excessive and the delightful unforeseen. Gesture before it becomes action is an opening onto the moment and its potential, furthermore, by not working with the same tools, stable and controlled, I'm forced to find and reinvent gestures I can use, which inevitably lead to accidents and events that take me by surprise."-Pascal Battus, Liner Notes
