REVIEW: MONSIEUR DELIRE (FR)

VISIT These two Steves are key artists in the microsonic movement. And among Steve Roden’s works I prefer those where he sings - or at least where he makes use of his fragile, shy voice. Not a Leaf Remains as It Was is a project based on voice, text, and song, as seen through a microsonic lens. Four pieces, seven to eleven minutes in duration, where Steve and Steve, in an extreme self-effacing exercise, sing words picked out of a Japanese poetry book – phonetic material used with any real signifier or signified. A pump organ, a melodica, a few objects are enough to - barely - dress up these immaterial melodies. Listen carefully.
