"This CD documents some of the considerable body of live work undertaken singly and together by these associates of the Metamkine group - Lionel Marchetti, Jerome Noetinger and Mathieu Werchowski..... This disc consists of two half-hour performances from a European tour undertaken in November 1998, Lille and Turin. It documents the collision between the electroacoustic devices of Marchetti and Noetinger, and the violin of Werchowski. The frisson of timbres both acoustic and electronic, and the juxtaposition of traditions (modern and ancient), provides a charge of excitement to the proceedings, and anchors it in a genealogy of improvisation stretching back to the 1960s. All this is discussed in depth in the accompanying essay by Michel Henritzi, which situates their endeavors within the underlying social infrastructure as well as the cultural superstructure." {from the press release}
