Samples of pieces

A feminity whose shapes would fade into spirituality

must exist as I have met her

 

3-Le passage

When I recorded this album I wrote some pieces for two guitars

I really felt like listening to this instrument 

played in duo. Here's one with Pierre AGOSTINO

whom with we often used to let our strings sound

A ragtime for a guitar luthier friend of mine who passed away

He built two of the guitars that I play on this album

He was his brother youngest brother and inherited

of that nickname, Petit Fré. He happened to be my father

I split myself in two guitar players for this piece

6-Stance pour une chasse d’eau

You can tune your guitar in a different way

and each time it's a new musical landscape

That's what I have done for this piece

I remember I was thinking of a troubadour

but I really don't know why I have choosen this title

( stance for a medieval flush)

 

7-Nuit landaise

A night in the Lands, les Landes

in the south west of France

The first time I heard the american guitarist

Leo Kottke play the 12 string guitar

I thought I heard an entire band

Therefore I bought myself a 12 string guitar.

A modest tribute to this great guitar player
