CATHERINE JAUNIAUX "Fluvial" (UK,1983)


After TENKO`s "Slope gradual disappearance" another avant-impro-vocal, RIO related masterpiece. CATHERINE JAUNIAUX is, as it is said, an inventor of languages, a mime of sounds real or unreal, a voice giver to creatures of the most wild and weird imagination. From far east theatrical forms to european folk, from improvisation to tango and cabaret, from childish tunes to natural noises, from ancient tragedy to lullabies and frightening breaths..."FLUVIAL" is a field of endless surprises. Co-writen with TIM HODGKINSON, this LP belongs to the great tradition of ART BEARS , HENRY COW, DAGMAR KRAUSE... placing its creator, at least next to legends of the genre.
CATHERINE JAUNIAUX
has participated in many projects like AKSAK MABOUL, DES AIRES, THE HAT SHOES a.o....and collaborated with important avant garde artists like IKUE MORI, LOUIS SCLAVIS... She was wife of the cellist TOM CORA.

I cannot wait to listen to this. Do you have The Desairs' mini album or the track "Love Lady Of The Roses" in full length? I have been looking for it for ages. Had the album back then, but now it is gone.

Oops, that should say "Lovely", of course.

Maybe I should have looked further - I see you have "recommended records" listed here, but not "Ad Hoc", a sub-label of Recommended USA. Fluvial was released on the label in 2005(?), together with a whole bunch of other stuff previously released only on vinyl, including The Work, K-Space, & (my own personal offspring!), the entire MCCB catalogue. Check it out!
best..

Hi Geoff
Thanks for your valuable commentation.
To tell the truth i didn't know about these reissues, and i was just ready to post "animal sounds vol.1".
Perhaps i 'll make a small compilation sampler of MCCB and other AD HOC material instead.
