In the wake of Ghys’s beloved Cantaloupe release Télévision — a Dada-esque exploration of alto double-bass meshed with layers of found sounds, processed vocals and a sci-fi sensibility — Bonjour’s self-titled debut is more directly performance-based, but no less compelling for its overall sound. From the jazz-laced, indie-pop lilt of “Thursday Afternoon” to the woozy, off-kilter mood of “Tuesday Noon Around 12:21,” the album shimmers with influences that push it beyond the safety net of “new classical” music to something altogether edgy, adventurous, and even slightly art-damaged.
Ever-curious and always engaging, Ghys has lately taken a keen interest in composing for small ensemble; his piece “An Open Cage,” composed for the Bang on a Can All-Stars’ Field Recordings, comes to mind. With Bonjour, he has found the perfect group of musicians to allow his imagination to run wild.
