First solo CD by Jean Derome!

Thursday, February 21, 2002 New releases

“Is it the best of all possible worlds…?” (Vital, The Netherlands) It is a surprise to notice after more than fifteen albums that Le magasin de tissu (The Fabric Shop) is Jean Derome first solo album! But it is true, and fans as much as novices will find something rewarding in this intimate and innovative album. An adventure composed of improvisation and surprising juxtapositions. Plunging into his suitcase full of game calls, flutes, toys and found instruments, Jean Derome draws short improvisations from them, captures them on CD and then associates them randomly with a simultaneous playback by three CD players. A remarkable work in which a brilliant composer works with himself in a simple and efficient manner.
