    .
    Louis Sclavis is not afraid of noise. More notably, he is not afraid of silence, either. Within this thirteen-chapter Roman (French for novel), Sclavis and idiosyncratic guitarist Jean-Marc Montera create a fully-realized sound world that ranges from near-quiet to roiling, extended-technique-fueled buzz. An intense, preternaturally focused performance, which makes for a similarly gripping listening experience.

REVIEWS
"Free Music punters familiar with the sounds of French clarinetist Louis Sclavis are going to be thrown for a loop with this CD. That’s because the Lyons-based reedman moves ‘way beyond his customary comfort zone into the realm of atonal playing. The reason: the participation of Marseilles-based guitarist Jean-Marc Montera. The results: exceptional and revelatory... Vocalized phrasing into the body tube, circular breathing and coloratura note bites characterize other reed solutions to Montera’s electronica-oriented interface. Buzzing loops, multiplied input signals and shifting drones arise from his plugged in equipment, not forgetting phaser and feedback extensions from the guitar itself." --JazzWorld

"plenty of drama and no lack of emotion" --ParisTransatlantic

"an illuminative meeting, one that effectively exposes and celebrates the idiosyncrasies of each musician" --Dusted Magazine
