"By now it seems that Eric La Casa is someone who is a fixed artist for the Herbal International label. Soundtracks might be his fourth release on this label and as the title suggests these are soundtracks to movies. Three soundtracks to be precise. A film by the ever obscure Luke Fowler, a video by Christian Jaccard and a 'drama' by Marie-Christine Navarro. Apart from three stills, there is nothing to see on this disc. Maybe these films/drama exist somewhere in the digital domain, but I decided to stick to the music and think about that.

Of course we know LaCasa from his many works that involve field recordings, and in "A Hemero Phaestos 2" these might be made in a foundry. In the other pieces it is less obvious, and sometimes I am thinking this has more to do with electronic music than with field recordings. Most likely however it is Eric LaCasa sticking his microphones in very unusual places and taping sounds as they come through odd routes into the heads of his recorders.

Sometimes it sounds far away, like a motorway (the first part of 'Polymeres 2' for instance), or (very softy) the sound of fire in the same piece. Jean-Luc Guionnet plays organ in the second part of that piece, but here too La Casa adds a lot of other sounds and (perhaps) processes. The Luke Fowler film soundtrack might be more to do with street sounds - I have no idea why I assume this, whereas 'A Hemero Phaestos 2' has the most electronic feel to it. There are some interesting combinations at work, quite some mystery as well. One never seems to be fully sure what one is hearing, which I guess works always best for this kind of music; no doubt these are soundtracks to more abstract visual material, and as such these work fine."-Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly


Artist Biographies:

"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."
