A very cinematic improvised instrumental session by Thierry Müller (Ilitch) and Quentin Rollet.
After meeting on many occasions and at the invitation of Thierry Müller
to play in the first part of Ilitch, Müller and Quentin Rollet decided to work together. A first rehearsal confirmed the possibilities of the duo which
immediately concludes that the next step would be recording without
other repetitions. The session took place in Thierry Müller's studio.
This record is the first musical encounter recorded by Thierry Müller (synthesizer, guitar, harmonica)
and Quentin Rollet (saxophone). These tracks are therefore improvised. They were
recorded live, very few takes, and worked in studio by Patrick Müller
who also mixed and mastered the album.
The result is an instrumental album, very cinematic, inviting to travel.
Quentin Rollet (born 1974) started playing the alto saxophone at the age of 11 and the sopranino saxophone at 37. After a few years spent unlearning the teaching of the conservatory, he devoted himself solely to free improvisation. This led him to play on record or on stage with groups as varied as Nurse With Wound
