It’s about colors and intensity here.

The cellist Valentin Ceccaldi invites three of the most singular and creative musicians of the European improvised music scene; the explosive drums of Etienne Ziemniak, the incandescent guitar of Luis Lopes and the rainbow keyboards of Fulco Ottervanger. Together they create a music of surprise: solar, powerful and generous.

The composition “Bonbon Flamme”, a sort of symphonic poem that names this album and the band, is an agglomeration of notes, words and drawings skillfully built, allowing each one to spread out, like a flower in spring, within a piece of music in which each personality is essential to the other.

This record is a kind of a self-portrait, with four voices, pulverising references then recomposing them with bright colors and a commitment of body and spirit cherished by the four builders.

Bonbon Flamme is a delight.

A fluorescent, raging and burning delight.


Guillaume Malvoisin, april 23.
