I — Coppice « Is This The Spot »

Is This The Spot?
Composed by Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer

© Coppice. 2017

A perspective tube for a question from Dream of Newly Cemented Dedication to Freedom.

Since its foundation in 2009, we have departed from bellows and electronics to create compositions, installations, discography, instruments, arrangements for performance, software, and sculptural objects.
Drawing from its expanding glossary of study, we’re currently focused on expansions and emulations of our sonic foundations (in bellows and electronics) using a newly designed musical infrastructure that departs from physical modeled instruments and modular synthesis.
Coppice is currently transitioning onto a new world of finer sonic illusions of digitally-seeded air, binary clocks, and impossible objects.

II — Yvan Etienne « L’énergie du non espoir »

Composed and recorded by Yvan Etienne, 2017.
Serge Modular, field recordings.

© Yvan Etienne. 2017

Yvan Etienne is active as a sound experimenter interested in issues surrounding site-specific audio installations and as a composer proposing weighty reflections on perception and the physicality of sounds in space.
Etienne has not been lacking for collaborative work in recent years, undertaking projects and performance with the likes of Phill Niblock, Yann Gourdon, Richard Glover, Brice Jeannin, Patrice Grente, Julien Ottavi, Robert Poss, Paul Panhuysen, Marie and Verry Joachim Montessuis, to name a few, as well as acting as curator and director of the Ohcetecho aux Presses Du Réel collection.

III — Tarab « Notebook : Carbon/Soda »

Composed and recorded by Tarab / Eamon sprod. 2017.

© Tarab. 2016/2017.

Tarab explores re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees. More than simply documenting a given site, tarab is interested in a direct engagement with our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness.

IV — Jean-Luc Guionnet « Warming Choir »

Jean-Luc Guionnet : Church organ
Recorded in Verneuil sur avre, 29 nov 2014.

© Jean-Luc Guionnet. 20014.

Mostly known as an alto saxophone player, Jean-Luc Guionnet is also illustrator, theoretician, eletroacoustician, sound installation artist, and... organist. He has been exploring the church organ for decades. His work focuses in part on hijacking the mechanics of the instrument: barely pulled registers that let in just a gasp of air, the sound of moving articulated elements – “extended techniques” for an instrument usually known for its grandiloquence. These unusual sounds – especially inside a church – become the building blocks of a mechanoacoustic music whose playing field ranges from inaudible to implacable.


V — Thomas Tilly « La limite  »

Unprocessed field recording, two editing points. Rorota path,
French Guiana 2016.

© Thomas Tilly. 2016.

Musician whose principle instrument is the microphone. For twelve years he has been composing, inventing sound art installations and teaching. His work has been presented in more than 15 countries. Tilly finds inspiration in different environmental analysis protocols and how they have impact on the notion of listening.
He worked with Jean-Luc guionnet, Junko, Dave Phillips, Raphaël Ilias, and Claire Bergerault & Fabrice Favriou in L'Échelle De Mohs. Lives and works in Nantes, Fr

VIII — Tomoko Sauvage  « Mylapore »

© Tomoko Sauvage. 2009.

Tomoko Sauvage, Japanese musician and sound artist based in Paris, has developed a natural synthesizer, an electro-acoustic system using hydrophones (under-water microphones of Aquarian Audio) immersed in porcelain  bowls of different sizes filled with water.
She plays with water waves and drops resonating in the bowls, also with her new sonic exploration, audio feedback creating waving drones and natural overtones. Since her solo album, "Ombrophilia », she made performances in Europe, US and Japan, often in solo but also in collaboration with Momus, MC Schmidt (Matmos), Gilles Aubry, André Gonçalves, Francesco Cavaliere…
In 2011, a new set of porcelain bowls was created during her residency at La Pommerie (FR) in collaboration with Ceramic Research Center of Limoges (CRAF).
