« The ‘coup de coeur’ of the year » > listen
« This young quartet gives an impressive debut-album going into numerous references, between ancestral songs, free jazz and acoustic transe »
« A phenomenal virtuosity going to the most expressive musical and noisy potentials of each instruments »
« No Tongues is certainly one of the most ambitious projects of the recent times ».
« Tracks of the world ». It’s four instrumentalists of today’s music who exile themselves in an ancestral vocal repertoire coming from the disc « Voices of the world ». A funeral song with child-like sound, Fernand Bordage leading his oxen to the plowing in the Vendée swamp, two Inuit women playing a « kattajjaq » throat singing punctuated with laughter, a choir invoking spirits or recounting a founding myth, the last shaman Selk’nam of the Terra del Fuego grazing its litany of rock. These musics are a path in the imagination and the musical force created by humans as they evolve. It is a reintegration of modern time, which runs without anchoring and aimless, in a broad, humanizing and vital time. It is a dance with the past to illuminate the present and to join that which does not belong to the fleeting time, but to the existence. It is a working process based on orality, by the imitation of a model towards its translation and its integration into a personal aesthetic.
The tracks of the world on stage becomes a suite of pieces created from our selection within the original disc. Listening to the source songs is offered to the public in a varied way: sometimes before our version, sometimes during, by superposition and increase of our share. Explanations are given to the public in order to allow him to link our proposal to the context of original music, often carrying imagination and poetry.
