Descriptions, Reviews, &c.
"A bunch of all kinds of microphones are divided in the house and among the landscape around the place. Each of them is plugged into a mixing desk that Éric La Casa is using in real time. The duration of the mix is more or less pre-decided by the 4 of us. During this amount of time, the 3 instrumentalists are going around, in and out of the house, following their own improvised sounds and courses through this open expanse filled by sound-catchers √√ thus we all are working on the construction of a sort of abstract and tentacle-like belvedere plunged into the acoustic space of the place. This cd is the direct result of one of those mix-experiences."-Jean-Luc Guionnet

Artist Biographies

"David Chiesa: Doublebass, Electric bass.

With particular focus on improvisation since 1997, David explores the relation with other artistic practices such as dance (with Fine Kwiatkowski, Valérie Métivier, Véronique Albert, Yukiko Nakamura), poetry (with Ly Thanh Tiên) or experimental films ( with Xavier Quérel, Christophe Auger, Etienne Caire, Gaêlle Rouard)...

Due to his interest in reality as the subject-matter for play, he met a group of artists by the name of Ouie/Dire (Marc Pichelin, Jean Pallandre, Laurent Sassi, Xavier Charles, Isabelle Duthoit, Kristoff Guez) with whom he developed links between "musical" improvisation and phonography.

As an improviser, he has participated in numerous meetings and developed several long-term collaboration with musicians such as Jean Luc Guionnet, Frédéric Blondy, Michel Doneda, Isabelle Duthoit... He has played in Europe, the United States, Lebanon, Africa, Estonia, Japan... He is a co-founding member of Le Clou, a Dordogne-based association which seeks to review and disseminate improvisation practices."
