Akousis Records is pride to announce the out of the new solo realise by French musician Pascal Battus: Cymbale Ouverte. Pascal Battus plays an self-invented instrument : the rotating surfaces inspired by the hurdy- gurdy principle are driven by an electric motor. By this way, Pascal Battus uses many material to rub, to hit, to play with the pitches, timbres and produced sounds. With Cymbale Ouverte, the musician has decided this time to use only cymbals to drive different kind of resonances. Four pieces are in the album and each one proposes to listen four sound extents which follow their own road, always guided by improv spirit.
