The Project

In the beginning, there was a vague idea: recording solo pieces, most of them improvised, on the theme of wind. To increase movement, I added some percussions. Then we superposed other sounds with the terms and conditions proposed by Frederic Leibovitz of saving only the first takes.

Finally, we extracted, cut, pasted, juxtaposed, edited and finalized the presentation of these musical puzzles, thanks to the reliable and talented help of David Cook on the Pro Tools station, a composition tool like manuscript paper and pencil....

The order of the titles on WINDPRINTS is contrary to the manner in wich the pieces were recorded: On this CD, we begin with polyphonies then biphonies and go to the minimalism of the Zeff (a PVC bass flute with no finger hole). Between music and noise, flute and breeze, the harmonics plunge into the Archives of the Winds. D.M.

EOLE LUDENS

Grave and frolicsome since the dawn of time
great Sweeper of ashes
Peddler of sowings
the playful Wind amuses itself
by going
through such and such cylinder or cone
of clarinette flute duduk taragot saxophone>...
producing sounds
that the musician, modulating them,
captures along the way

-Let him amuse himself! Let them amuse themselves!
It's still better than a storm...
