Lionel Marchetti, Mue (la demeure brillante) (MKCD007)

Along with Noetinger (and in collaboration with Noetinger), Marchetti does both concert pieces and live improv. I’ve heard both and can say quite confidently that if you see a notice of these two doing a live show, go see it. Truly. You will be less a person if you don’t.

But Mue. This is a quirky little piece. For instance, the falsetto voice so thoroughly establishes itself as the norm, that when normal voices come in, they sound odd. And the falsetto’s so persistent, that in the few places where it’s silent for a few seconds, one finds oneself impatient for its return. Maybe it’s just me, but I found it to be so. (If one of your friends started talking in this voice, by the way, you would want them to stop right away. Just one of those many differences between life and art, I guess.)

1) Je sens…
2) Je demeure…
3) Je repose…
4) Du tronc où je sommeille…
5) Je me tiens…
6) Contre une écorce claire…
7) Je borde…

    and many more, including people who are still alive, of course.

    Présences électronique

    14, 15, 16 April

    Most of the names I did not recognize, which makes me even more sad that I cannot attend this year. But you can. And probably should. If you love your ears, attend this festival.

    SIME 2017

    24 – 28 April

    Probably, though I'm not sure how it is possible, this will be the best SIME yet. Attend. Let me know.

    Terrible Orchestra
    Echofluxx Ensemble

    And film and more music and more performers. More of everything.

    Francis Dhomont
    Horacio Vaggione
    Annette Vande Gorne
    Hans Tutschku

    And many more. Two festivals that overlap is just cruel. But go to one or the other of these. Monaco or Prague, you choose.
