Börje Fridolf Merçi beaucoup pour la musique!

Every GR record is a gift! Favorite track: Tumuc Humac.

sumbuk No one does music quite like Camille and Xavier do. I see their music as being akin to soundtracks for unfilmed movies. In this instance it is a movie about explorers of mountainous terrain, perhaps the terrain of our lives. Merci pour cette musique si intrigante. :-)

John Seltenreich these guys are pretty much their own genre...neo classical, prog, modern jazz or something like that.

Sven B. Schreiber Several good people I'm following, and who deserve my full confidence, already bought this good album: Tom Landon, M.Foujita, Mark Jung, TaKashi MuraKami, John Simms, felizzze, Jed, and Peter Tush - just to name the subset of those who are following me, too. Now it's my turn! The music on this EP is no less than extraordinary - I'm perpetually looking for unusual stuff like that, with quite some avantgarde approach, and sort of a RIO feeling. Bull's eye! Favorite track: Sierra de Tamuraque.

Clark Battle Love the last track! Its very Henry Cow (Deluge)/Simon Steensland. Well done.
Mark Jung

Mark Jung I come back to this one again and again - partly because they keep adding new tracks, but mostly because the playing and compositions are both engaging and exciting. Hope it winds up being a several-days-long album, guys. Chamber rocks!

    A signed vinyl of the album ! Order will differ from the digital and CD version (due to specific vinyl reasons, you know). (If you don't know, it's because you can't place a huge tune on the end of a side, otherwise it might cause distortion. Crazy, right ?)

about

Here are several pieces about imaginary mountains found on old maps.

It is dedicated to all who tried to climb their inner mountain, especially to Xavier Garnerin, writer, and friend.

"Après treize ans écoulés on dirait que j'en reviens au même point, mais le tour que j'ai fait était en spirale : il m'a mené plus haut" (Lettre d'Antonin Artaud à Jean Paulhan, juin 1937)
