« This album is released almost 3 years after our latest CD. We wondered if we should release it: is it different enough from our previous album, Souffle et mécanique, is it more than just a document for us ,would an outside listener find it interesting, does it question enough our practice, the tension between the “Relentless idiom” and improvisation? Is there a necessity to add yet again a recording to the numerous pile of improvised music released every year?
But at the same time, there are some beautiful sounds, some attempts, maybe still hesitative, to get out of our usual patterns, some new elements even though they’re being used mostly the same way we’re using the old ones. And quite some pleasure to listen to the recording when not thinking about all those issues.
Anyway, we have the possibility to release that session of live music. It is of course a way to make our music and work available to the audience, but beyond that, it is an opportunity to share these issues with you. »
