about

« ..all 'things' that seem to have identity of their own are only islands that are projections from something underlying, and have no real outlines of their own. » C. Fort , The book of the Damned.

This might help enlighten the approach of the fragments of "engourdissement", whose main material was taken in three days and three nights of the winter of 2009. Feet strike the wet clay, the wooden floor, the bottom of a punt or crush the dead vegetation. The banjo reverberates on the surface of a stagnant water or swells in a closed shack . The reeds of an dismantled harmonica are beaten or blowed.
A simple device of sound recording that have been tried during the previous attempts (« l'ocelle mare » in 2006 and « porte d'octobre » in 2008), and the great complicity of Adrian Riffo allowed to fix these forms, made in a material sufficiently little determined to take on the instant.

Instruments : six string banjo ( the bridge is sometimes moved to the edge of the resonating head, creating a vibration which evokes distortion), Harmonicas, harmonica reeds (beaten or blowed) , mouth organ, tuning forks, plectrum of dried poppy, piano, microphone, feet tapping, metronome...

Recorded by Adrian Riffo in February and August 2009 at « le clos de boeufs » and « le pigeonnier ».
