Guigou Chenevier, Pièces Musicales avec Vue,
Trois Musiques pour le Théâtre et la Peinture
Our friend Guigou is back for the second time as a one-man band
(cf. Le Batteur...) to set some plays
and artistic exhibitions in music. Guigou Chenevier, a front-rank
drummer of the French underground scene of the 70 ies with his band
Etron fou leloublan, is one of the few musicians who manage to run
long-time collaborations like his combo Volapük and short-lived
experiences, for instance participating in dance or theater shows.
These « Three musics for theater and paintings » represents
some kinf of triptych. The first trip for the play Cairn written
by Enzo Corman is made of breathless miniatures that evoke his duet
Body Parts with the guitarist Nick Didkovsky. Besides it's the first
time that we discover the Guigou guitar player and indeed his nickname
fits him well ! The second trip illustrates « Psychiatrie
/ Déconniatrie », an hilarious and cranky show created
by Christian Mazzuchini and based on the anti-psychiatry. This time
the music by Guigou with the violinist Takumi Fukushima and the
bassist Nicolas Chatenoud is much more composed and recalls Volapük.
The third trip is quite amazing because Guigou moves on some kind
of ambient noise music, which proves he has more than one string
to his bow ! This new experimentation illustrates pictorial works
by Enrico Lombardi, a kind of contemporary PieroDella Francesca,
that evokes Giorgio De Chirico.
