Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Télépathie (recorded in April) begins with a percussive strike, becoming quite active right away, and also features some real "tunes" - maybe a bit of Steve Lacy, certainly some brief middle eastern horn, contrasting with something of a web of city traffic (again). There's a sort of "cool" repose, even of contrast, with sax tunes against shifting glissandi - as well as moments of extended dodecaphony. I particularly enjoy the contrapuntal opening, which tends to contract markedly in the second track, finally into a kind of walking chase that could almost be considered traditionally jazzy (and that in turn, together with the break following the galloping end to the first track, recalls & transforms the central moment of Proletariat).

Artist Biographies

"He has been playing the violin for 30 years and in that time has played all genres of music ranging from contemporary music to free jazz and improvised music, live and in the studio.

His main interest shifted towards contemporary improvised and composed music.

The relationship with his instruments is focused in sonic and textural elements.

Electronic music was an early influence on his approach to violin playing, which challenges traditional romantic concepts of the violin/viola through use of preparations and micro tuning.

Active in different settings on the Portuguese scene for free improvised music, both as a collaborator and in leading his own groups.

Music for Dance, Cinema, Video and Performance.

Has created the record label Creative Sources Recordings in 1999, which mainly concentrates on releasing experimental and electro-acoustic music."

"Étienne Brunet is a musician, composer and improviser, born in Paris on January 2, 1954. He plays saxophone alto and soprano, bass clarinet , bagpipes, harmonicas and electronic instruments.

He took part in children's choir at the Opéra de Nice at the age of seven, then re-learned music as a self-taught musician as a teenager and took classes with Steve Lacy whose originality of musical thought will influence his entire career. He will do many jobs in addition to music (press modelist, book worker, saxophone tuner, operator on synthesizer writing for television channels). In 1979, he founded the trio Axolotl (not to be confused with other homonymous groups that came one or two decades later) with Marc Dufourd and Jacques Oger. In 1984 he founded the group Aller Simple Paris, with the accordionist Odile Lavault known as Gina Sbu, devoted to folk music arrangements from Eastern Europe. From 1987 he collaborated with the poet Julien Blaine . He performed with musicians such as Jac Berrocal , Anthony Coleman , Wayne Dockery , Jean-Jacques Birge , Jean-François Pauvros , Guillaume Loizillon, Erik Minkkinen, Jean-Jacques Avenel , Yasuaki Shimizu , Emiko Ota, and the Romanian drummer Cornelius Stroe; he writes various music and rides the Zig Rag Orchestra, then 3D Jazz and Ring Sax Modulator with Thierry Negro (bass) and Erick Borelva (drums). In 1995, he inaugurated a contract for several discs with the Saravah label of Pierre Barouh with a disc dedicated to Louis Jordan composed of exploded songs, La Légende du Franc Rock And Roll . In 1997 he recorded duets with Daunik Lazro , Daniel Mille , Thierry Madiot , Hubert Dupont , Camel Zekri and Fred van Hove, which were transformed into samples and mixed in the album B / Free / Bifteck . In 2007, he plays in duo with Diemo Schwarz (electronics). In recent years, it happens a little less, mainly solo, sometimes within the group of Senegalese grilet Djeour Cissokho.

He wrote numerous columns: Journal Web Intime from 1998 to 2001 (before fashion blogs ), then, from 2003 to 2007, Petite Fleur Electronique for Jazz Magazine devoted to the tune of time in music. His musical career is atypical. Initially impassioned by improvisation , he studied Indian music and electronic music which he mixes in a ferociously post - modern , jazz , funk , folk and free approach in the same composition."
