At "Souffle continu" 's record shop, yesterday, Michel Henritzi did propose two amazing and delicate solos of
"A qui avec Gabriel" and "Shin'ichi Isohata", from Japan.
"A qui avec Gabriel", a female accordion player based in Tokyo, gave us a pure moment of melancholic drifting across imaginary landscapes. Reminding some innocent melodies of Eric Satie, her pieces brightened up the atmosphere.
As well, Shin'ichi Isohata, with his acoustic guitar, gave us to listen pure deep harmonics, silences and free improvised pieces. A kind of minimalistic tribute to Derek Bailey.
They both are touring across France this May ' month ...
