"La Vie Dans Les Bois is a document of a musical performance recorded in the open air near a castle in France. The players were Pascal Bathus and Emmanuel Petit with their electric guitars, Lionel Marchetti credited with "electricity", and Yôko Higashi who performed a butoh dance during their music performance. Higashi has appeared on many records with Lionel Marchetti, but I didn't know she was also an exponent of this post-war avant-garde Japanese dance artform which involves very slow movements and is, according to many of its practitioners, very elusive when it comes to definitions and meanings.

Readers who enjoy improvised music may recall that Derek Bailey released a 1996 album Music and Dance, where he performed his guitar improvisations alongside Min Tanaka, a very prominent butoh dancer. Very coincidentally, Tanaka is the developer of a form of butoh he calls "Body Weather", of which Sam Pettigrew above is also a subscriber. This isn't to imply any relations between this CD and Pettigrew's music, but La Vie Dans Les Bois is a compellingly mysterious piece of delicate interplay where for 50% of the time the guitars are barely recognisable as such, and all the performers only make an utterance when the occasion demands it.

The recording also blends nicely with the distant sound of birdsong in the air. As with the Derek Bailey record, you may not be able to "hear" the sound of the dancer participating on the record, but Higashi's work is still perceptible somehow, as it were appearing in the interstices of the music, shaping its contours. The creators clearly felt moved enough to include a landscape painting by Dominique Lechec as part of the package, and a few lines from a poem."-Ed Pinsent, The Sound Projector


Artist Biographies:

"Sound artist, improviser, composer Pascal Battus develops a practice of sound more attentive to the sound gesture, the listening and the situation which determines them than to a defined instrument: the pickup of guitar (guitar pickup without guitar) , rotating surfaces, the guitar "environnée" (electric guitar on table + micro contact + various objects + electronics), percussion (objects amplified or not), ... His work is regularly broadcast on international airwaves (France Musique, Resonance FM, ...) He has played in Europe, United States of America, Canada, Asia, Middle East, Australia, ... solo or more frequently with other musicians. he often works with dancers, visual artists (video, light, sculpture, ...). He creates Graphones (sound drawings) and co-invents Massages Sonores. His records are published by Potlatch, Corpus Hermeticum, Amor Fati, Another Stamp, Cathnor, Organized Music From Thessaloniki, Herbal International ..."
