Composer Jean-Luc Guionnet wrote "Distances ouies Dites" ("Distances: Hearsay") for the 7-piece Dedalus Ensemble, who are positioned in separate rooms at Le Consortium, each having to use the features of the room and distance from each other to confer liked musical ideas.
Guionnet, Jean-Luc / Dedalus
Distances Ouies Dites
Released in: France
"For this live recording, the seven musicians were placed in different rooms on the ground floor of an art center as if they were forming a chain from one space to the next. The audience took place in the first room in front of the first instrumentalist, without seeing the remote other members of the orchestra. The score incorporates links with the structure of the place by considering such parameters as distances and diffusion between instrumentalists. Jean-Luc Guionnet'score Distances ouïes Dites, pursues two goals. First, musicians have to mix several spaces focusing on their distinctive features (including distances) as if they were making a sound description of them, and simultaneously, they work on the global space considered as a tool to spread musical ideas in their environment. They have to deal with the specificity and standing waves of each space, reproduction, learning in real time, distances between instruments, distances between the audience and each instrument, room reverberation, sound spreading in space from one instrument to another, and from one room to another."-Potlatch
• Show Bio for Jean Luc Guionnet
"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."-All Music, François Couture (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/jean-luc-guionnet-mn0000231714)
