"More than just a record, “Restes d’une chose brisée” is the outcome of an intimate collaboration between music and writing. Based on a series of thirteen short texts by young French writer JEANNE MONTSÉGUR, this symbiotic work unfolds like a Dantesque journey. On each step of the way NATURE MORTE’s abyssal drones echo the desperate intensity and ruthless honesty of Jeanne’s words, opening her wounds to chasms, sustaining the inner conflict and the baring of feelings by an almost unbearable tension which, when it finally breaks, strikes the listener as surely as the incisiveness of her words. At the end of the voyage there is hope, seeping between the lines and through the grooves as the drones recede and give way to luminous reeds, leaving the reader-listener shaken, colder and gloomier than before, but maybe a little wiser too."
