Title: Double Portrait
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Fabrice Moreau writes of his new release: "As a drummer I think of improvisation the moment I play a note, written or not. The rehearsal/creation of my compositions was a two-stage process- firstly, playing the music as written in the score like a 'traditional' orchestra would do, then detaching oneself from the score and working on stepping back, on silence and the emergence of melodic lines like memories that suddenly surface. I wanted to link my music with my painting, to connect the drummer's gesture to the painter's. I make no distinction between the two disciplines, I have always had a very close relationship with them and I've always felt an almost simultaneous desire to play/compose and to paint, to externalize a vision and an inner song. And navigating this sometimes limpid, sometimes mysterious musical or pictorial language, one foot in reality, the other elsewhere, I like to feel a giddiness and find what I haven't been looking for."
