Rien Virgule

The music of Rien Virgule is crafted by the different journeys of each of its members (Anne Careil, Mathias Pontevia, Manuel Duvel), who staggered in the corridors of experimental music for a long time before delivering a very personal vision of pop music, as White Noise did in their time. Their latest record La Consolation des Violettes perfectly blends some written pieces on which one can swear to hear the melodic curls of Robert Wyatt, and totally spontaneous jams. Those latter are cut then glued back so much, likewise Teo Macero’s work for the records of Miles Davis, that they tend to form fairy tales from a lab written with magnetic tape.
