Large, black, beautifully simple brush strokes are splayed across a delicate haze of pink and yellow on the double fold-out digi-pak of this new volume—François Bayle’s best cover artwork so far. “Morceaux de Ciels” (1997) is the most recent work available from this composer and is largely low-key and brooding when compared to the more frenetic, air-filled chaos of much of his previous output. “One of the remarkable features of this magnificent piece lies in the fact that it often moves in four-track blocks; and always, initially, in pairs. As a result, the listener, aware of an overall sound over four poles, finds himself with no alternative but to mentally reduce to one source the turbulent sounds he hears on four tracks. François Bayle may be compared to a watercolorist who provides an infinite number of nuances but refuses, in the midst of his experimentation, to set things down in a definitive state.”–Gerard Denizeau. “Theatre d’Ombres” has been reissued here from the out-of-print Volume 2.
