Errant Bodies – CD / DVD
Dialect melodies are passed along since time immemorial and yet are only spontaneously available in the moment. Before caught and preserved they have to be released. Antje Vowinckel reflects upon this paradox through a collection of dialect recordings which are then imitated by humming musicians who try to catch the correct melodic lines.

Swarming
During Spring 2015, Eamon Sprod (Tarab) and Eric La Casa spent one week to record on waste grounds, at the north east of Paris, and along the canal Ourcq. Spaces which are somehow both inside yet apart from the city; waiting spaces from which to listen to the threshold of the city.

Sub Rosa
Piano always had a central role in the discography of French composer Sylvain Chauveau. This selection of unreleased and out-of-print short pieces—mostly soundtracks—showcases what might be Chauveau's musical signature: quietness, slow pace, long resonances, a close as possible to silence. Music to be played at night.

The first (and the last) concert of mythic Kosmiche Belgian band Kosmose (1973-78): unreleased songs recorded and mixed in March 1975, something undoubtedly cosmic but with a DIY, home-made edge, dirtier than clean, noisier than technology-based.

On Elephantine, his new Northern Spy/Sub Rosa album, Cairo-based Maurice Louca guides a 12-piece ensemble through a panoramic 38-minute odyssey, which he describes as his most ambitious project yet.

Louca also makes vital contributions on guitar and piano, and inspires stirring performances from a global lineup.
