Here is the fresh and up to date contribution from Grenouille to the RADIA network.
Sorry for the delay but the program maker’s first child being born on 7 April came to disturb the normal development of Art!
The sound material for this program was recorded during 3 impro sessions where program maker Fabrice Cesario (multi-effects, radio, tape, whistling tube and solo analog synthesizer) invited other fellows. At first he played with Olivier Maurel (cello, multi-effects, FM and HF radio). Then joined Andy Bolus (homemade audio switch) and Erik Minkkinen (pitched voice, 80′s electronic drum) – this 4-person band was named ‘Phantom Power’ for this occasion (Andy insisted). The last session was a set by ‘Olga Tüdjnik’: a duet with Eva Jacobi (voice, toys and sound files). The program is a result of an editing of this material (recorded at each time on multi-tracks) with parsimonious addition of Fabrice’s solo performances.
Fabrice Cesario attempts to free music from the word ‘free’ – that has been a label among others which format and level music. He wants to put weight on the other scale of the machine.
About this program, Fabrice says: “My music happens at the very moment I’m making it. What you can perceive in this radio program is not exactly the music I made: it is an ‘écorché’ (a cutaway – litterally ‘skinned’ in French) in the same way you won’t see life on anatomy boards.” So, let’s make it music anew by experiencing its listening!
