Marc Ducret, acoustic guitars


released May 4, 2013

Recorded at Civitella Ranieri Foundation, Umbertide, Italy
on May 31, 2011 and in Matthieu Metzger's kitchen
on February 24, 2012.
Cover design by Corinne Troisi & Stéphane Berland.

In January and February 2012, Marc Ducret presented the music of the « Tower » cycle during a solo tour of Scandinavia and the Baltic countries.
"Playing the music of «Tower » on my own, having previously performed it with a quartet (see volume 2), a quintet (see volume 1) or a sextet (see volume 3), is a way to bring out certain aspects of the compositions, certain possibilities for development that are distinct from working with a group. Solo improvisation allows faster decisions, and the building of « bridges » between pieces; it is also an opportunity to re-assemble parts of different pieces in a totally different order, offering a new vision of the same music."
