FAFCHAMPS, JEAN-LUC - GENTLE ELECTRONICS (CD)


"In the pieces featured on this record, I have chosen simple electronic means - the kind that are commonplace, accessible, cheap, and easy to use - and I put them to work in a mostly-theatrical way: a situation of representation, one that is unique, new, and creative, where the focus lies in esthetics and poetics instead of in technological prowess. An imagination of otherness, where you don't know anymore whether the other is the soundworld produced out of time in the 'black box' of electronics or the musician - or even the instrument itself - pushed away, alienated, lost, despite the fact that there appears to be evidence of his/her/its physical presence." (label info) comes with bonus DVD "Street Music for Plugged Viola" (2009, a movie by Manon de Boer with Vincent Royer (viola), 30'38")
