LA COLONIE DE VACANCES

started as a collective tour of French bands

ELECTRIC ELECTRIC + MARVIN + PAPIER TIGRE + PNEU

in the summer of 2010.

The idea of 11 musicians playing together emerged on that tour at Tours’ Festival Rayons Frais where they were invited to play at the 4 corners of Tours’ Castle courtyard. This turned into ‘LA COLONIE DE VACANCES’, a quadraphonic sound system, throwing the audience in the center of a musical ping-pong game played by two, three or four teams. This has been turned into a 10″ vinyl + a 100 illustrated pages book.

The vinyl – titled Concentric Grooves – is a very specific one because it is readable in multi-grooves. The concept was borrowed from Monty Python’s album Matching Tie and Handkerchief from 1973. It was mastered with two concentric grooves on side two so that different material would be played depending on where the stylus was put down on the record’s surface.

1 THEME, 4 VARIATIONS, each interpreted by random members

It will be released on 22 April, Disquaire Day

on KYTHIBONG and MURAILLES MUSIC and SUPER LOTO EDITIONS (F)
