MATTHIAS MÜLLER / ÉRIC NORMAND / PETR VRBA | TRICHE
Triche brings together three well experienced improvisers naturally blending their unique musical languages. Recorded in Vienna, their reunion is totally improvised, without concept or preparation, and let place to all kind of influences, ranging from minimalist jazz to chamber punk.
Matthias Müller commands his instrument extraordinarily well using all kinds of mutes and circular breathing as well as extended techniques like overtones and overblowing. Éric Normand uses his radical playing on a homemade electric bass, creating electric flux interrupted by the instrumental gesture. Petr Vrba is placing his trumpet in new contexts, blending acoustic and electronic in connexion with the magic of the acoustic experience.
JEAN-LUC GUIONNET ET LE GGRIL | TATOUAGES MIROIR
“While my approach to writing is entirely charged with the experience of the stage, the tension inherent in improvisation, I do not seek to reproduce any musical result to which these practices would have led me. On the contrary, my attention is entirely focused on the powers of writing. In other words, I do not use the score to ask others to play music that I already play myself in other settings. Nor do I use it to disguise an improvisation. I use it to push the cork of the form as far as possible through writing in all its forms, including verbal. Consequently, orchestras madeup of musicians with atypical backgrounds [like the GGRIL] are for me privileged partners in research and experimentation.”
