Time Gone Out
Label: INTAKT RECORDS
Format: COMPACT DISC
Courvoisier, Sylvie; Feldman, Mark
For almost 20 years, Sylvie Courvoisier and Mark Feldman have been continuously redefining the dialogue between Western and American music, improvisation and composition, tradition and modernity. The most diverse playing attitudes and atmospherics network in the alert reactions of the two players – dance, world-weariness, liberating noise, shrill jumping cascades, the confession of simple beauty. Their latest live release was described by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) as one of the "original productions in jazz history". A duo that stands or falls with a special togetherness and a duo that lives from the spectacular playing, the immense technique, the grandiose joy of playing and the art of improvisation. The new album Time Gone Out, recorded at the Oktaven Audio studio in New York, is a culmination of many years of collaboration. The album shows how her music has freed itself from any reference and plays in radical singularity: between power and restraint, energy and fragility, energy and softness. This precious art speaks in the present about the present, about our time and wanders into a distant, unpredictable future.
