about

"Murmuration" est un mot entendu dans une conférence donnée par le philosophe Jean-Christophe Bailly ; le caractère visuel et énigmatique de ces vols d’étourneaux aura été un repère; et de là l’envie, déjà présente, mais renforcée par ce mot et l’image qu’il convoque, de créer une musique composée de courtes phrases, de motifs exécutés sur mon instrument, la guitare, sans accompagnement, alternant le caractère mécanique de la répétition et la dissolution de la forme.

I heard the word "murmuration" in a conference given by French philosopher Jean-Christophe Bailly; the enigmatic, visual character of the collective flights of starlings worked as a marker; the word and the image it conveys made a strong impact on my preexisting desire to compose music made of angular melodies and short patterns. These two pieces are performed on electric guitar, with no accompaniment.

Inspirations: Giacinto Scelsi, Coil, Morton Feldman, The Residents, Olivier Messiaen, Gorguts, Susan Alcorn, Darkthrone, Kvist, François Jacqmin, Galina Ustvolskaya.

Murmurations was recorded on 26 february 2020 by Christophe Albertijn, at Les Ateliers Claus, Brussels. It was mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves, NY.
