At the instigation of Catherine Jauniaux, three musicians meet around a book by Marguerite Duras. Three invented characters inspire music, a pulse, a harmony... through their silhouettes, their relationships, their movements, the space in which they are standing, between the sea, themselves, and an idea of civilization.
A triangular composition that is formed, deformed and reformed,
in accordance with the tides. Music that tells of the wandering of souls on the brink of existence.
Lines, dots, strata, melodies and hidden words, impacts shown, acoustic obviously, to meet in the simplest and best way: playing/being together.
This trio does not fail to amaze us with the fluidity of its sound, its
sentimental and human generosity and amorous conviction.
Aren't voice, clarinet and guitar the perfect instruments to help us
reach these dreams?

The trio was recorded by Pierre-Henri Thiébaut at the end of 2016 after having toured with this program in 2015 from Paris to Moscow via Draguignan, Berlin and Saint Petersburg.
Then everyone resumed their journey, following other meetings, involved in other projects. A story on hold...
It was finally in 2020 that by mutual agreement and deploring this state of affairs, we entrusted the music to Pierre Etchandy so that he could finalize the sound and allow us to present it to a larger audience than the sole lucky ones having been able to attend concerts by the trio.
Which he did with great care and especially love, we're back to it.
The story continues...
