Press release from A Bruit Secret: December 2003

Xavier CHARLES is well-known on the French improvisation scene for being an active militant (he is the co-founder of the Densités Festival) and a multi-instrumentalist (clarinet, bass, electroacoustic device). He has played in numerous improvisation and electroacoustic groups with Axel Dörner, John Butcher, Yoshihide Otomo, Martin Tétreault, Kristoff K.Roll, Frédéric Le Junter, Jacques Di Donato.

" La neige attend la neige " ("Snow waiting for the snow") is a piece for vibrating surfaces, in which various objects that have been chosen for their resonance capacity are arranged, added to or subtracted from the vibrations of the loudspeakers. This is a radical gesture of turnaround and deconstruction of the domestic diffusion, a poetical proposal opening on unheard plays of matters. Loudspeakers are used as instruments, after such a similar use has been applied to the mixing desk by Toshimaru Nakamura and to the microphone by Max Neuhaus, Jérôme Noetinger, Lionel Marchetti, thus closing the loop.
