Jacques Diennet, Le Pic Saint Loup

Lend your ears to this live recording of Le Pic Saint Loup, an avant garde music troupe with composer Jacques Diennet on MIDI keyboard, Joe McPhee on saxophone and pocket trumpet, Richard Dubelski on percussion and vocals, René Bottlang on piano, Suzanne Joubert as author of text, and Julie Demaison as head of production and distribution.

The performance is a re-drawing of an emotional state, catalyzing a time and place with harmonies and melodic undulations. Carrying the weight of faults and escarpments there are stretches, long sequences, and extended sound in dialogue with abrupt tones, almost harsh percussive instruments--their connotation "primitive"--the saxophone, and sophisticated digital instruments. Pic Saint Loup tries surpassing the constraints of space and time and thus blurs confused elements of the Universe in an effort to bring the viewer to live a contemplative experience.

Recorded live, December 17, 2014 at Experimental Intermedia Foundation.
