eRikm & Akosh S. - Züfall

« Zufall » est une rencontre entre eRikm, aux platines et Live sampling; et Akosh S,
saxophone, flûtes, clarinette, cloches, tarogato. Une rencontre peu conventionnelle, explosive, dans le sens "free jazz", par certains moments, eRikm coupant, interrompant,
samplant ses sources gravées sur le vinyle, les triturant par des effets,
les mettant en boucles et créant ainsi une structure assez dense sur laquelle
Akosh S rajoute des lignes de saxophone ou d'autres instruments à vent.
Dans d’autres moments plus "aérés", eRikm et Akosh S se positionnent dans un dialogue plutôt que dans une surenchère. Enfin sur certains morceaux plus proches de la musique concrète ou électro-acoustique , eRikm élabore à l'aide d'un archet de longues sonorités résonnantes, explorant des fréquences proches de celles des instruments d'Akosh S.
Sauvage et rythmée, cette association est à découvrir d'urgence.

Article dans The Wire (septembre 08)

"in his sleevenotes for the 1959 album change of the century, Ornette Coleman suggested that his music was" something like the paintings of jackson pollock'.
when Coleman's epochal Free Jazz was issued the following year, Pollock's White Light was reproduced on the cover. In a spirit allied to action painting, this music was energy made audible and ordered from within.Hungarian reedsman Akosh Svelevé plays in the splistream of coleman and other free radicals sush as Albert Ayler and Pharaoah Sanders. But his collaration on Zufall with frensh turnatablist eRikm is less reminiscent of pollock than of the visual artworks of john' Cage's close associate Robert Rauschenberg- abstract expressionism wrestling constructively with pop culture, messy energy assuming neat form as it spills beyond the given frame and lets in the outside world.
These musicans share a taste for clenched tension and abrasive textures. On saxophones, clarinets and tarogato, Akosh S. inclines to a raw frictional tone that's just the right match for the grainy, crackling impurities emanating from eRikm's turntables, samplers and assorted electronics. Like found images stencelled onto a Rauschenberg canvas, fleeting beats, snippets of semi-familiar songs, even ironic fragements of orchestral music emerge within the prevailing abstration of eRikm's real time mix. Not least from his work in the quartet Poire_Z with the Voice-Crack duo and percussionist Günter müller, eRikm has developed a fine ability to create a surface wash that holds everything together without homogenising.At the same time he enters regularly into taut scratchy exchanges with Akosh S.'s growling horns. rauschenberg said, "You begin with the possibilities of the material".On Zufall those posibilities are realised very persuasively.
