“Asphodel” (by Strings Of Consciousness)
"Clinical Jazz" is an eclectic and illogical compilation.
Range: ....from "clinically" traditional jazz directions....... up to unclassable and clinically indefinable "jazz" forms.
Strings Of Consciousness has united acoustic music and digital technology. The sound of Strings Of Consciousness is meant and dreamt to be adventurous and creative. Throughout the past few years we have noticed that more and more experimentalists were expressing less and less concern for their potential listeners, forgetting to respect some structures/directions in their composition and most of all lacking humanity. Even if we sculpt and craft our music with a lot of focus on detail and days and days of editing, for us it is important to convey emotions, feelings. Today, 14 musicians form the collective though the heart of Strings Of Consciousness is a string quartet, as its name makes clear, but it is also a direct literary reference to the "stream of consciousness", a term that was earlier in the 20th century to illustrate the flow of words echoing the narrator's thoughts. A narrative technique which is dear to the ensemble because of musical freeforms they all feel strongly about. Though we do not believe that free playing equals everyone playing at once. Grace and space are of the utmost importance.
Founded by Philippe Petit (BiP_HOp / Pandemonium Rdz.) and Hervé Vincenti and starting life as a small group of musicians from Marseilles, France, the ensemble expanded by recruiting like-minded musicians from across the Globe. Their unique sound has been likened to latter-day Talk Talk, Angelo Badalamenti, Do Make Say Think, Tortoise and Arab Strap often in the same breath.
