The Volume Surrounding The Task

On January 2011, Lucio Capece, Kevin Drumm and Radu Malfatti made a tour in France, Belgium and Switzerland. This recording, made at the Brussels concert, is a unique opportunity to discover the outstanding combination of three radical approaches of minimalism in improvised music.

Pascal Battus, rotating surfaces / Dafne Vicente-Sandoval, bassoon

In this duo, Pascal Battus and Dafne Vicente-Sandoval explore the sound connections between their very dissimilar instrumentations: the various sounds made by rubbing objects on rotating surfaces from dismantled cassette recorders mix perfectly well with the lenghty sounds of the bassoon. In the first CD (Marne) instruments are amplified with single small microphones put close to them. In the second one (Seine), they are played acoustically.

Meredith Monk in the UAE

Source: National profiles Meredith Monk ahead of her upcoming performances in the United Arab Emirates.

Monk is hardly a jazz artist, but even record shop nerds are at a loss where to file her work (when pushed, she begrudgingly concedes to the Contemporary Classical bracket, but prefers the term New Music).

For more than 50 years, she has been making art that transcends conventional definition, an interdisciplinary approach combining music and voice with choreographed movement and symbols. While the sonic aspect has been bottled on a string of album releases, most notably for ECM, a Meredith Monk performance is about more than music – it is a collage of image, object, light and sound.
