VOLAPÜK
Guigou Chenevier • Michel Mandel • Guillaume Saurel • Takumi Fukushima


POLYGLÖT

Polyglöt finds Volapuk refining their immediately identifiable sound. In addition to the usual contributions from Guigou Chenevier-drums, electronics, Michel Mandel-clarinets, taragot, & Guillaume Saurel-cello, ex-After Dinner violinist Takumi Fukushima appears as a guest on most of the record, & her contributions fill out & extend their already marvelous sound.

The usual great melodies & catchy intricate rhythms abound as well. Included is Voilà Puk, a tune written for them by Lars Hollmer.

SLANG!

Forget the fact that you can't pronounce the name of the band and listen up! Volapuk is drummer/composer Guigou Chenevier's (Etron Fou) new trio also featuring bass clarinetist Michel Mandel and cellist Guiillaume Saurel.

The band has a very immediately identifiable sound, making full usage of the unusual sonorities of their instruments, along with short, rhythmically complex compositions & improvisations. Exciting, mostly composed music that will please any fan of adventurous/RIO style rock. Guigou is one of the great drummers in rock and is also a superb composer; many of the great Etron works bear his imprint. The cello and bass clarinet handle duties not normally assigned to these instruments with clarity and dexterity.
