A short story by Pierre Loti, which tells the irremediable separation of a couple of beggars who have lived together for a long time, illustrated by a sound piece by Quentin Rollet and Romain Perrot (Vomir).
Louis-Marie-Julien Viaud known as Pierre Loti (1850-1923) was a naval officer, a great traveler and above all a novelist.
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
, Prohibition, The Red Krayola, Mendelson, David Grubbs
, Herman Dune, Akosh S. Unit... He is the co-founder of the labels Rectangle, reQords and Bisou Records
Romain Perrot, under the alias Vomir, is considered as the figurehead of the "Harsh Noise Wall", a wall of noise reduced to the bare essentials.
