just a record, “Restes d’une chose brisée” is the outcome of an intimate
collaboration between music and writing. Based on a series of thirteen
short texts by young French writer JEANNE MONTSÉGUR, this symbiotic work
unfolds like a Dantesque journey. On each step of the way NATURE
MORTE’s abyssal drones echo the desperate intensity and ruthless honesty
of Jeanne’s words, opening her wounds to chasms, sustaining the inner
conflict and the baring of feelings by an almost unbearable tension
which, when it finally breaks, strikes the listener as surely as the
incisiveness of her words. At the end of the voyage there is hope,
seeping between the lines and through the grooves as the drones recede
and give way to luminous reeds, leaving the reader-listener shaken,
colder and gloomier than before, but maybe a little wiser too.
