About

A new year, a new Sclavis quintet - this one born out of the wish to continue the work begun back in 2005 with 'L'imparfait des langues' (and retaining guitarist Delpierre and drummer Merville from that project) and to invent new musics in which to lose oneself. To uncover fragments of memory by chance, while chiseling at new ideas. Track titles allude to the voyages of Ulysses. Sclavis: “I wanted to travel somewhere unknown, letting myself be blown from Scylla to Charybdis by mastering the winds and the torrents of return to re-evoke a history” - along the way looking at aspects of jazz, rock and modern composition from unfamiliar perspectives.
