After their homage to Jimi HENDRIX, the trio JOURNAL INTIME returns with their third album EXTENSION DES FEUX which, after such an experience, nearly imposed itself musically and with an instrumentation that original. This personal adventure also reunited two well-known guests: Marc DUCRET & Vincent PEIRANI. Their electric strings and accordion reeds combine themselves joyfully with the copper-coated breath and the orchestral atmosphere of the trio.
All compositions are written by Frédéric GASTARD: A complex music, closely combining writtenpassages with those improvised, inviting the listener on a journey to electrifying and organic chamber music at the edges of Free Jazz, Rock and Contemporary music. In troubled times, a music definitely written with an urge to invent, resist and contribute to the Extension of Fires (Extension des Feux).
Founded in 2006, trio JOURNAL INTIME is playing a rare complicity in ensemble music and improvisation, moving freely in between wind music without any etiquette, with remarkable compositions and adventurous arrangements. A unique experience of a trio with a nearly inexhaustible range of sound. They accompanied amongst others Jacques Higelin, André Minvielle, Tony Hymas, La Campagnie des musiques à Ouïr and Eric Lareine. They are also closely connected in collaboration with Rodolphe Burger, Marc Ducret and Vincent Peirani. JOURNAL INTIME ploughs through the French and European scene blowing and sweating a sophisticated and wild music that dances, sings, whispers and cries, and all with a rousing and complice request. An ode to a devilish electrifying acoustic music.
Marc DUCRET is cultivating a paradoxal course for over thirty years now, which made himinternationally one of the most famous French guitarists. He played with numerous well-known artists such as Larry Schneider, Michel Portal, Joachim Kuhn, Miroslav Vitous, Django Bates, David Sanborn, Joey Baron and many more. The New Yorker (Tim Berne, Herb Robertson, Hank Roberts) made him their mascot guitarist. Resolute cutting-edge avant-gardist Ducret is an impressive improviser and artist who is showing his skills solo as well as part of a big orchestra.
