Modes réels collectifs is the first work published in 1981 under the Vivenza banner, following Jean-Marc Vivenza's time with the bands Glace (1976) and Mécanique Populaire (1979). It represents a genuine manifesto that would become emblematic of all Vivenza's subsequent work. By suggesting, from philosophical and sonic points of view, an idea of opening to the reality directly inspired from Futurist theories, Vivenza was presenting what he had brought from his relationship with machines and sounds of factories, to evoke the brutal concrete of the heavy industry world. This album shows this concern about participating in the energy of the future, with the reciprocal mediation linked to the productive activity of the world. As Vivenza puts it, "By working and through the strengths of work, in the sonorous magma of the industrial society, at the heart of the forges and weirs, of the rolling mills and power stations, reactors and artificial intelligence, nature reveals its dynamic characteristic. The power of machines, and of industry in general, are the truth of the world." Thus, industry and technique are what we could call the principle of any reality, because, like the Futurists said, "The machine is indeed the richest symbol of the mysterious human creator strength" (Enrico Prampolini, Ivo Pannaggi, and Vinicio Paladini, Manifesto of Mechanical Art, 1923). CD in six-panel digipak.
