In stock


After studying composition at the Marseille Conservatory, Emmanuel Cremer, while writing for the theatre and the cinema, began improvising, notably alongside Barre Phillips, then Raymond Boni, with whom he recorded in 2003 ("Terronès, Suite andalouse", Blue Marge 1007 - with Foussat!), Joe McPhee, Jean-Marc Montera and other musicians from the region. In Athens in 2019, in the middle of the ancient ruins, but in fact in the studio, he recorded five solo pieces, five improvisations undoubtedly well matured - the amplitude of the sound sometimes suggests the use of re-recording -, alternating or mixing bow and pizzicato, punctuated by smears and squeaks, where bass and treble overlap and collide in a resolutely free music dynamic without prettiness or concessions.
