fourth in moremars’ 3″ nous series comes the disc ‘noeud’ by athenian electroacoustic improv duo Acte Vide
acte vide consist of Danae Stefanou & Yiannis Kotsonis (aka. sister overdrive). Their music arises from piano and laptop improvisations and, more often than not, moves on to include found objects and similar un-musical things. The duo insists on the moment, and every one of their performances takes some care in reflecting the conditions within which the music is set to appear. This particular disc documents their set at the opening of the ‘knot gallery’ performance space in athens, in early 2009. On this occasion, Danae chose the Erik Satie songbook, opening with the frenchman’s celebrated ‘Vexations’, then Yiannis picked up, turning this into an altogether altered beast
also, it seems we somehow skipped #3 in the series, Figurant’s ‘the way back home’. Singer-songwriter material, with a particular soft spot for sarah records stuff and post-rock abstraction the promo says. Curious to listen to this one.
