Novembre (Hoang / Clerc-Renaud / Darrifourcq) + Marc Baron: Encore [2 CDs] (Umlaut Records)

A fascinatingly structured album conceived by Romain Clerc Renaud and Antonin Tri Hoang, the first CD constructing a complex poetic form made up of multiple themes, from simple (Encore, Petit Matelot) to rapidly complex (LetCo, Klaxon), unfolding in unexpected ways; the 2nd CD restructured in the studio by Marc Baron, transforming the music into seven engrossing electroacoustic compositions.

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"After the album Calques recorded live during a concert, Novembre returns with Encore, a double studio album, the result of a long maturation in terms of form, composition and playing.

As they have been doing for more than ten years, Romain Clerc Renaud and Antonin Tri Hoang have constructed a complex poetic form, made up of multiple back-and-forths between simple and gentle themes (Encore, Petit Matelot) or very fast ones (LetCo, Klaxon); between very short pieces (Miniatures) and large developments (Continuum). Everything is arranged by the play of contrasts and resonances: a piece is interrupted to be continued later (Please wait), a motif is metamorphosed by dint of repetition (Encore), a piece is played again, but as quickly as possible (Letco Flash).

The second CD of the album illustrates another side of the art of montage. Marc Baron recorded Novembre while they were working on Encore, using the most varied materials and techniques (tape recorder, hydrophone, boom box, spring, tape loops). With this harvest he has constructed an electroacoustic piece that diverts, amplifies and transforms the music of Novembre."-Umlaut"


Artist Biographies

"Antonin-Tri Hoang began playing the classical clarinet at the age of nine and moved very quickly towards jazz when he discovered the swing of the 1930s1. His father-in-law, a rock guitarist keen on gypsy jazz, encouraged him to improvise very early on . Antonin-Tri Hoang then learned the saxophone and the piano and immersed himself in the history of jazz.

From his beginnings, he performed very often on stage in various contexts on saxophone, clarinet or piano, but also in the theater as in the play Une Bête Sur La Lune by Richard Kalinoski (five "Molière" in 2001)1 . At 16 he entered the jazz and improvised music class, directed by Riccardo Del Fra, from the CNSMD in Paris. Then he took classes in the generative improvisation class led by Vincent Lê Quang1.

In 2007 he wrote a tribute piece for and with Michel Legrand at the piano at the IAJE in New York. He composed music for two films by director Ambarish Mannepalli: Chassé-croisé in 2008 and Wink of The Eye in 2009. He also composed for two exhibitions by Pierre Huyghe: The Host and The Cloud in October 2009 and February 20101.

In 2009 he was spotted by Daniel Yvinec, artistic director of a new ONJ whose musicians chosen from the heart of the new French jazz scene are multi-instrumentalists and from different cultures2.

He co-founded the November group, the group of four clarinets WATT, Grand Bazar with the pianist Ève Risser for a program Ligeti/Carla Bley/J-S.Bach/Aphex Twin, participated in the quintet of drummer Anne Paceo, at the Aum Grand Ensemble , at Matteo Bortone's Travellers, at Guilhem Flouzat One Way or Another... With Jean-Jacques Birgé and Vincent Segal he recorded film music and acted in public on Dépaysages, an experimental film by Jacques Perconte.

In 2011 he released his first duet album with Benoit Delbecq, Aéroplanes, under the Bee Jazz label. The title, Aéroplanes, evokes the buzzing of a wasp and literature3: "Here, says Albertine to me, there is an aeroplane, it is very high, very high (Marcel Proust, La Prisonnière)"4. He plays saxophone and bass clarinet.

In 2017, he received the Prix Swiss Life à 4 mains5, with the photographer SMITH, which enabled him to compose a 16-way spatialized score for their installation at the Palais de Tokyo as part of the exhibition Le rêve des Formes.

In 2019, he created Disparitions6 at the Festival d'Automne in Paris and staged the musical theater play Chewing Gum Silence 7directed by Samuel Achache with whom he created Original from a lost copy [archive] at the Théâtre de l'Aquarium in 2020. He also plays in Peplum by Fantazio and Théo Ceccaldi, in the Fakebooks8 trio with Thibault Cellier and Sylvain Darrifourcq."

"Sylvain Darrifourcq was born in 1979 in Orthez (France), he makes his apprenticeship as a classical percussionist. At 15 years Old, he drives himself definitively towards drums and play in his first rock group. He discovers lately jazz music and his meeting with Daniel Humair leads him definitively to a professional pathway.

Following up, he settles down in Toulouse and got into the CNR (academy of music) where he obtains his award. In 2003, he establishes his own group : L' Egotiste Sorel with which he makes his first record " life of Henry Brulard " (Aljama records) in tribute to the masterpiece life of Stendhal.

2004, will be a distinguished mark of the beginning Emile's Parisien Quartet. The group gives rise to a unique sound universe rewarded by the 2009 jazz victories.

Enthusiastic by the temporality questions, space and music breaks, nowadays, he composes today for these trios : IN BED WITH and IN LOVE WITH , he investigates both ambitious projects MILESDAVISQUINTET! and TENDIMITE (duo for percussion and prepared double bass), works beside new generations composers with which he creates musical plays (Le PANTIN, DANS L'ENTRE from Guillaume Hermen...).

2014, time for the DA-Festival creation, event co-managed with the double bassist and Elise Dabrowski singer. Creative music festival supported by Axel Cassel sculptor. This event has the aim to promote multiplicity forms, improvising as well as writing.

His precise, quick and creative drums game, leads him into all music experiments, to be expected also as a wanted sideman. Settle down in Paris since 2008, he has also the opportunity to express his wide range of music together with l'Orchestre Philharmoniques de Radio France and Pierre-André Valade, Joëlle Léandre, Tony Malaby, Michel Portal, Louis Sclavis, Marc Ducret, Andrea Parkins, Akosh S., Benoit Delbecq, Andy Emler, Kit Downes, les portugese and italian collective Porta-Jazz et Jazz-Engine..."
