Charlemagne Palestine: (voice/organs), X Joachim Montessuis: (voice/computer). After two massive works, From Etudes To Cataclysms (SR 272CD) - for the Doppio Borgato and Strumming Music (SR 297CD) for piano, harpsichord and strings ensemble, Charlemagne's work is now rooted in Sub Rosa for good. But next to his solo records, the label wants to continue to publish collaborative works: they started with An Aural Symbiotic Mystery (SR 204CD) featuring Tony Conrad. This time, Joachim Montessuis is the special guest on another magical night with Mr. Palestine. Charlemagne Palestine wrote intense, ritualistic music in the 1970s, intended by the composer to rub against audiences' expectations of what is beautiful and meaningful in music. A composer-performer, he always performed his own works as a soloist, but he enjoys new experiences, too. His earliest works were compositions for carillon and electronic drones, and he is best-known for his intensely-performed piano works. Since his birth in 1972, Joachim Montessuis has lived in 15 different cities, including Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Marrakech, Abidjan, Besançon, Rotterdam and Cologne. He is currently based in Paris. He is interested in the links between art, sound, science and spirituality. Since 1993, he has been developing a transversal sonic poetry praxis focused on experimental voice processing and immersive concert installations. His noise and video events are devised as panic-poetic spaces in which sensorial disturbance and blurring occur, starting from silence to a wall of sound. His current work is oriented towards a reflection process on the observation and perception of reality through a non-dual approach. This collaborative live performance occurred at Eglise Du Gesu, Toulouse, France June 29, 2007.
