”La terre, il se pourrait bien après tout que ce soit une espèce
de merveilleux petit appareil enregistreur, plaçé là par on ne sait qui,
pour capter tous les bruits qui circulent mystérieusement dans l’Univers.”
Pierre Reverdy - ”En vrac” - 1929

"Le rôle de l'artiste créateur est de créer des lois, non pas de suivre celles qui sont déjà faites"

Behind nothing

"Behind nothing" : a new work on CD by Michel Guillet



a chronical of "whitout shade" , his 2008's cd
Don't let that title put you off – there've been plenty of nearly nothings in musique concrète over the years and they've all been really something. This sequel to his Without Shade, adapted from a piece Michel Guillet presented at the Présences Electroniques fest back in 2008, is an impressive collection of eight dense and carefully worked pieces. Michel Guillet, working quietly and patiently away just up the road from here, combines the intricacy and subtlety of classic GRM concrète with the gristle of Xenakis and a Noisy fondness for rough static and raw hiss. But whether it's sourced from analogue or digital sound (both, I suspect), it's the composer that wins out: there's some serious ProTooling (or Sound Forging) going on here, with every sound precisely placed spatially and temporally to assure maximum effect. Fine, uncompromising work – check it out.–DW
