Hautzinger, Franz / Eric Normand : Unbelievably Late (Tour de Bras / Inexhaustible Editions )

Having originally met in 2016 when Viennese trumpeter Franz Hautzinger and Quebec electric bassist Éric Normand formed Torche! with Michel F Cote, Philippe Lauzier and Xavier Charles, the two improvisers developed this collage during the pandemic from asynchronous recordings, creating six dramatic and explorative compositions of incredible and unusual technique.

Artist Biographies:

"Detours often lead to more thrilling goals because they open up new perspectives. Franz Hautzinger has taken long and bendy detours and turned to many dead ends, he has spent years without instrumental activity and has made a hopeful new start. All this, those victories and defeats, this "History from the Total Crash to 'Emergency Individualism'", as he himself described it, made Franz Hautzinger the highly profiled musical personality that he is today.

Born on March 11, 1963 in Seewinkel, Burgenland, a Hannibal Marvin Peterson concert at Jazzgalerie Nickelsdorf was the young trumpeter's "awakening experience". He studied at the Jazz department of today's Art University in Graz from 1981 to 1983 until lip palsy forced him to take a six year total break from trumpeting. After moving to Vienna in 1986 he started in 1989 to explore the trumpet in his very own and un-academic way. He became attached to the circles around Christoph Cech and Christian Mühlbacher, played in the Big Band "Nouvelle Cuisine" and the octet "Striped Roses"; the CD "Zong of se Boboolink", which he recorded with saxophonist Helge Hinteregger and which was influenced by sampler collages was the first personal CD statement. His 10 month stay in London provided new ideas and contacts, amongst others Kenny Wheeler, Henry Lowther, John Russel, and Steve Noble. Hautzinger assimilated the stimuli in very different ways: in "Regenorchester" ("Rain Orchestra") with its changing instrumentation, in the quartet with Helge Hinteregger, Oren Marshall and Steve Noble as well as in the trio "Speakers' Corner" with guitarist Martin Siewert and drummer Wolfgang Reisinger.

The conscious decision to avoid electronic sound sources but to still comprehend the development of digital music on the trumpet - the quarter tone trumpet purchased in 1997 - were decisive stages for the creation of Franz Hautzinger's sensational solo trumpet CD "Gomberg" (2000) on which he presented this new until then unheard cosmos of sound that he had developed on his instrument. Hautzinger positioned himself with "Gomberg" at the front line of the international improvisation avant-garde; collaborations and CD records with Derek Bailey, the "AMM" veterans Keith Rowe and John Tilbury as well as Axel Dörner, Christian Fennesz or Otomo Yoshihide, and Sachiko M followed. The step into the world of decelerated sound microscopy and from 2003 on the re-discovery of musical sensualism, the confrontation of his trumpet sounds with groove and tunes ("Regenorchester XI" and XII) can be considered as important stages in his development. Franz Hautzinger teaches at the Vienna Music University since 1989, is a member of the Berliner Ensemble "Zeitkratzer" since 1999 and received comissions from Klangforum Vienna amongst others. He is a globetrotter whose unmistakeable musical signature is known from Vienna to Berlin, London to Beirut, or in Tokyo, New York, and Chicago. Franz Hautzinger has shown that even in times where postmodernism is history an instrument can still be reinvented."-(Andreas Felber, translated by Astrid Donaubauer)

"Eric Normand is an improviser, bassist, instrument designer, composer, songwriter, singer and record and concert producer. He defines himself as an epidisciplinary musician, a free electron driven by its yearning for meetings. As an improviser, he develop a personal and radical playing on a homemade electric bass equipped with mics and objects feedbacking and vibrating in small electronic devices, creating electric flux interrupted by the instrumental gesture. With this set, he prefer to play duets, with Jim Denley (flute and sax), Philippe Lauzier (bass clarinet and sax), Sébastien Cirotteau (trumpet), Pierre-Yves Martel (viola de gamba and electronic), Jean-Luc Guionnet (saxophone), in addition of several spontaneous encounters.

He also play in bands involved in a more specific musical genre as danced poetry with BABABA, instrumental theatre with Le Veau/ The Veal, songs with Les Pitounes and Éric Normand Chante and folk music with The Surruralits and RRRRoyal Canadian Free Form Folk Experience. Interested in collective creation and orchestral improvisation, he lead for seven years the GGRIL, a 15 pieces band that have worked with composers such as Evan Parker, Jean Derome, Robert Marcel Lepage and Michael Fischer. His music has been programmed by or performed in several festivals in Canada , Australia and Europe. It have also been broadcasted by Radio-Canada, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, CBC, Radio-Grenouille, and several college radio stations."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Maybe Alfred Jarry and Guillaume Appolinaire have never met. How can it be true ? How two of the weirdest guys of Paris could never meet ? A letter from 1905 confirm that they actually met, as Appolinaire write to Jarry that he still have his book Histoire du prince C.E. et de la princesse F. But, according to subsequent letters all their other "rendez-vous"' were missed by one or the other, so the book never came back to Jarry.

Hautzinger and Normand did met in 2016. Along with Michel F Cote, Philippe Lauzier and Xavier Charles, they formed the band Torche ! with which they created really moving music. Since then, they tried to meet again to go forward on this way. The reunion of the quintet has still not happened but Franz and Eric played since then as duo, trio or quartet with Tom Mamendier and Erikm.

The music on this CD is the music that was possible to put together during pandemia, a collage of different moments in time, the result of a "rendez-vous" that became unbelievably late."-Tour de Bras / Inexhaustible Editions
