Collaborative project by Gregor Asch, aka DJ Olive ("illbient" plastician and musicophiliac translistener turned sound fragment mixer, sculptor of vinyl matter, choreographer of audible bodies and movements) and Jean-Paul Dessy (masterful horizon-widener, new music surveyor, and cellist). Playing with them are the musicians of the Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles: violinists, cellists, a flutist, a trombonist... who, invited by the two accomplices, generously contribute their instrumental inventions in order to develop mixed pieces that play with sparks, scratches and caresses. Scories was recorded in the summer of 2004 at Igloo Studio under the supervision of soundmaster Daniel L?on, who contributed his expert touch to the mixing stage and found the best way to highlight the spontaneity and the energy that produced these inspired musical gestures. Scories is the result of various confrontations and convergences. These scoriae, solid residue from the smelting and refining processes of musical metals, build another edifice in electro-contempo history, the driving force of new sonic continental drifts.
