"Lionel Marchetti & Jrome Noetinger, both on tape recorder Revox B77. One side live at Cave12, Geneva, Switzerland, 2009. One side live at GRM, Paris, France, 2007. Incredible duo working live with tapes, microphones and objects. Sound cannibalism ! Nice cover from Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre." [label info]

"Is the tape recorder an instrument? In this case the reel-to-reel machine called Revox B77? Both Lionel Marchetti and Jerome Noetinger have such a machine and they play concerts using this. No other electronics, no overdubs. I missed their concert at Steim a couple of years ago, when they played this, but I was told it was great. Their tapes are no doubt pre-recorded with sounds and they do improvisations with those. Hand manipulation of pulling out the tape, slowing down (on the machine, as well as by hand), speeding up (ditto), play/rewind/fast forward/back/rewind etc: relatively simply means of producing music, but sometimes all you need is the right idea and obviously the right creative skills to produce such great music. Two concert recordings here, one from Geneva and one from Paris and I assume they have been edited a bit so it would fit the limitations of the LP, but this is all top stuff. Marchetti and Noetinger proof that they belong to the top of the field of electronic improvisers. They create rich music with limited means and do so with great style and care. Next time around I promise not to miss it when they come to town." [FdW/(Vital Weekly]
