about

Janvier – Mars 2016

Download the flac version (the stream is compressed sound quality), listen LOUD in good sound monitors if you can, this album (and all my other albums, in the same conditions) is a continuous experience with all the acoustic dynamics left intact and all the peaks adjusted for the compositions without compression or limiter.

Thank you for listening !

19th part (2004...) in an an Endless cycle of music compositions...

BERGER ROND – I Could Not Figure This One Out Yet (2016 / no label cited)
ISSUE 1,217 JUNE 2016
by Mark S. Tucker, Veritas Vampirus

`The indefatigable Vincent Bergeron, a.k.a. ‘Berger Rond’, is back with, as I’d predicted in reviews of his last three ever-exotic forays, a sound compatible with his entire oeuvre but carrying discernable variations, at first much in league with John Cage, Harry Partch, and the Nonesuch avante-gardists, gents from an era I hold a very strong affection for. The opening cut, “Interpreter les Paroles d’un autre Jusgu’a ce Qu-elles Nous Resemblant” is starkly pointillistic, jaggedly twnkling, sparking, squanking about in the ether before giving way to “Les Hommes n’en Pouvaient plus d’Assister a Leur Vie”, a winnowed reprise of past resonances taking the previous cut’s more austere dramatics into account while recapturing that crazed, lurching, eructating, staggering, Beefheartian wont of his into the Ernst-ian soundscapes...

`Crafted ultimately,
but not so much committed on tape
as something.`

some writer, Time Out magazine

-

`It was an attempt to compose
in a few months an album worth of material
that only me could know about…
Obviously, the composer was disappointed
because I have failed at his sick little mind game.`

a man called Vincent

-

`He has invited a crowd,
but I was the only stranger.`
