Triolid: Ur lamento

Triolid: Ur lamento Can you make demands upon pure improvisational music? The simple answer is no.

The more correct (and lengthy) response is to ask the same question of its listeners. What does one bring to the listening table? Does expectation and theory only dull the experience? The best approach (for many) is to consider the listening experience as meditation, and to open your ears to all possibilities.

The French improv band Triolid comes to most American ears with no expectations. This recording of clarinet, theremin/electronics, and bass is a mostly understated affair. Even with clarinetist Isabelle Duthoit’s screams of madness on “Falaises” are not overblown. The trio remains within themselves, and the moment. This is not so much a noisy affair as it is a reflective outing.

The combination of instruments, clarinet/theremin/bass is the feature here. Each has the possibilities to make ‘noise,’ none do. Duthoit, a classically trained musician, David Chiesa former rock bassist turned improv student, and Laurent Dailleau a full time theremin musician play a patient game of extended thoughtful lines.

Their meditations are ours.
