POMME DE TERREPREMIERE
Nothing’s wasted with Pomme de terre – “potato”, in English. Strength, careening, power trio. Drums, guitar and Aymeric Avice’s trumpet, for it is he who has initiated this tuber of a project. The wonderful thing is that these three sonic gunslingers have never played together before. This is quite an original Pomme de terre : a tasty potato that melts in your mouth. A greengrocer’s dream. All the effects send the trumpet reeling on electric guitar territory, and both instruments enjoy distracting the audience – the better to conquer its ear. Drums help tremendously; they’re the driving force of this noise trance. By the way, legend has it that the name of the band is a translation of the drummer’s surname. And the members of this trio never pull their punches.
PETER EVANS "MIRRORS OF INFINITY"PREMIERE
Growl, suction, genius infrasound, high-pitched strength – and a great set of lungs. It would take a lot of ingenuity to sum up the grammar and vocabulary created by Peter Evans, whether performing by himself or with multiple musicians. One can hear his Hard bop legacy as well as the edgiest avant-garde: the music is physically energetic and formally ambitious. It’s often fast-paced and sudden, like the brass in a Rameau piece. Often it packs quite a punch. But it’s always devoid of boastful mannerisms. The trumpet player can play many a fiery trick, and his brand of lyricism is brutal, overpowering, all the smarter and stronger as it’s always relentlessly tender. His two partners are beautiful devils, and the trio revisits the long history of trumpet-double bass-drums trios… although they do change the rules. Obviously, they’re here to stay.
