Listening Diary

François Couture, Monsieur Délire, June 20, 2013

The duo Kristoff K.Roll (Carole Rieussec and Jean-Christophe Camps) have always been incredibly talented at telling electroacoustic stories. They are soundtellers. And À l’ombre des ondes [“In the shadows of waves”] is (another) major opus. This CD features three pieces (28, 7, 27 minutes) designed as “audio-talking naps” to be listened to individually, at rest, on headphones. That’s what I did. Audio illusions playing with background sounds (a plane flying by, conversations of passers-by, insects), acousmatic treatments, soundworlds carefully woven to intrigue the mind, consciously and subconsciously, and through it all, dream narratives in French — sorry, non-French-speaking readers, but you will be missing out here. Great electroacoustic art, and proof that this art, which at times can be abstract and methodical, can also be deeply human… and dreamy.
