Reissue of the CD released on the label Chloë (USA) in 2002, recorded in July 2001 in the Paris metro station, during the last two hours of service.
On July 10th 2001, Guionnet (alto sax), Warburton (violin) and La Casa (microphones) explored the acoustics of the Pré Saint Gervais Metro station in Paris, riding the elevators, taking the stairs, experimenting real-time music in daily life. A reference, between site-specific improvisation and sound art.
Born 1966 in Lyon, Jean-Luc Guionnet is a French saxophonist and organist, a visual artist, a performer, and an electroacoustic composer.
Born 1963 in Rochdale, Dan Warburton is a British violinist and composer.
For more than 20 years, while listening to the environment, Eric La Casa
(born 1968, Tours, lives and works in Paris) has been questioning the perception of reality and has expanded the notion of what's musical today. Through his aesthetic of capturing sound, his work fits equally into the fields of sound art
. As a result of his in situ listening processes, he creates forms (of attention) that creep into the venues, slowly infuse there, and become other possible spaces. In the same way that the letter stimulates a country's reading, the in situ aesthetic object renews our relationship to space and landscape.
