Album Description

On this record, the universes are multiple : Erik Satie and Debussy, as evidence, free-jazz squalls in the face, Béla Bartók hijacked (in "Bartok à la fenêtre (Bartok at the window)"), Ravel quoted in "Malcom Malkovich", a Chopin's melody in "Funeral Blues", the spicy perfumes of South African jazz ("Voulévoulévouvouzélas?")... The music of the duo also embraces literature with his Baudelaire's colours, a dark tribute to Antoine Volodine ("Paysage avant pendaison (Landscape before hanging)") and his electroacoustic counterpart "Reflets dans un oeil mort (Reflections in a Dead Eye)"), another to Marguerite Duras ("L'homme assis dans le couloir (The Man Sitting in the Corridor)"). It is in fact very cinematographic : not only by its dantesque cover of the "Suspiria" composed by the Goblin group for the horrific masterpiece of Dario Argento, but because this music is powerfully generating images, between impressionism and expressionism.
