Klimperei, Salle Polyvalente
After meeting The Mirror Stage with Alice, exchanging some tasty
recipes with the American Frank Pahl (Music for desserts), and appearing
in several compilations released by In Poly Sons, Klimperei gets
back with a new concept album that we are proud to release ! It's
a simple and popular concept which allows to create a great deal
of stories and variations in the delicate music of the kranky Klimperei.
A young person is preparing to go to a party. The positive fever
of the preparations, the pleasent anguish to find the place (the
famous Salle Polyvalente), to search for friends to have
fun and suddentlty some glances with somebody, a hope. It's the
age at which all is possible, we say we'll meet again and we return
home light-hearted. A banality that moves everybody, a story maybe
without follow-up or with huge consequence.
The mechanical pop music based on melodica, keyboards and small
percussions of Klimperei with its Pascal Comelade-like arrangements
and its more synthetic and stirring pieces, illustrates wonderfully
the seduction scenes and the variations of the feelings in this
kind of parties.
With the echo of the cuckoo and the cock in the background, these
short but swaying tracks will awaken your sensitiveness !
All tracks played by Christophe Petchanatz and Françoise
Lefebvre, except 2, 6, 11, 13, 14, 19, 20 by Christophe Petchanatz,
7 & 8 by Christophe Petchanatz and Claire Lamy. All tracks composed
by Christophe Petchanatz except 7 & 8 (traditionals).
