"Four seasoned musicians improvised for an hour-long in 4 long and longer pieces. The shortest is eight minutes, and the longest is twenty minutes. Accordion (Claude Parle), modular synth (Jean-Marc Foussat), percussion (Makoto Sato), saxophone (Quentin Rollet) and sometimes voice create a riveting sound world. The title translates as space in this case and is very apt. Makato Sato has played with Alan Silva, Linda Sharrock, and Joe McPhee. Claude Perle has played with Don Cherry, among many others. Quentin Rollet is mentioned elsewhere in this week’s Vital Weekly. And Jean-Marc Foussat has worked with Evan Parker.

Listening to this release, I lost track of time. Even when things get a bit more dense and wild, there’s still a sense of space and openness. Halfway through the first track, there’s a meditative passage with a nice dronelike ostinato in the accordion with slow-changing chords. I can’t find the right words to describe this music. It’s eerie at times, slow, fast-moving with lightning-fast runs in accordion and sax, melodic at times, and extra-ordinary percussion work by Sato. If there’s one release you want to hear this week where impro meets modern classical music, this is it." - Vital Weekly
