“beet5 takes Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto as its starting point. The slow movement was recorded using a special turntable for the blind that plays back records at quarter speed. I had an old recording of the piece lying around; I forget who the pianist was. The slowed down version was very striking, recognisable as
Beethoven’s music but much sadder, more fragile. I developed a piece around this, using my usual array of synthesized sounds, field recordings, ‘borrowed’ and improvised stuff, etc., and performed this one direct to disk, which is the version presented here. I tried to continue refining the piece, working it towards true
‘installation’ status, but it didn’t really come together. Eventually I abandoned the project. — MJS

The trio of Jérôme Noetinger (electroacoustic devices), Michel Doneda (soprano and sopranino saxophones) and eRikm (CD-J and electronics) first convened in 2006 at the Mulhouse Jazz Festival in France. A tour followed a year later, and then a CD on the Ronda label. Nervures was recorded in 2007 and mixed for this release by eRikm in 2010. An alternate version is available on Dos D’ânes (Ronda RND12, 2009). Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.”
