What Lasts in What is Lasting
Jean‐Luc Guionnet (Saxophone) & Lotus Eddé Khouri (Dance) Live in Los Angeles
On the release of Jean-Luc Guionnet's L'épaisseur de l'air 2LP on Thin Wrist Recordings we present a performance film of his long running collaboration with Lotus Eddé Khouri. Their Saxophone / Dance collaboration has been a unique extension of each of their wide ranging artistic practices.
Below is how the artists in their own words describe their work together.
—What lasts in what is lasting —
(ce qui dure dans ce qui dure )
Jean-‐Luc Guionnet & Lotus Eddé Khouri
Saxophone / Dance
Our main task is first to find a common state that we call "OFF". From this state, will come some decisions that strongly depend on the situation — colors, animals, audience, architecture, health, background noise... Then, what happens has more strategic reasons than physical or organic ones : here is what we call "ON". On one hand, we try not to be afraid of the void, on the other hand, the form that raises can drive us to exhaustion even if it is very short. Like two miniaturists, we seek space and room in the slightest corner of time. OFF & ON are both of full action.
Jean-‐Luc Guionnet's solo saxophone debut L'épaisseur de l'air is now available from Thin Wrist Recordings / Black Editions Group.
