Text by Murailles Music (via Google Translate):

"Following the disappearance of Jean-Marc, one of its members, no one would have been able to say if the group was going to continue. The main interested parties, Anne, Mathias and Manuel, either. How to respond to such an ordeal?

On the contours of mourning, life flows, and by replaying music for three, one thing was obvious: it was the same incandescent sap that pulsated between them, the one that irrigated the furrows of their two previous records, the one that fascinated the public And with it came the desire to get back to work and embark on a third record.

While the title of the album is a verse taken from a haiku, this poetic form of radical brevity, he chooses on the contrary to stretch, to free himself from the constraints of simple vinyl and to fully spread his wings. ..

When the haiku can be declaimed in one breath, the music of Rien Virgule unleashes a multitude, shaped by the journeys of its members who, like White Noise, have long weaved in experimental practices before delivering their very personal vision. Pop.

We take full measure of the ambition of the group which over this period can finally mix, thanks to a real science of narration, written pieces where we would judge to see the melodic swirls of a Robert Wyatt, with others from completely improvised sessions. latter being cut out and glued together, like Tel Macero for the albums of Miles Davis, to the point of composing laboratory fictions with the magnetic tape.

Jean-Marc with his DIY instrumentarium will have bequeathed his share of chaos to the other members of the group, who continue to delicately resonate a jumble of metal and broken glass like so many sparks of life.

'La consolation des violettes' is a universe woven from tracking shots on the edge of the abyss, from poems drawn with a soldering iron and inhabited by a surge of visceral, vibrant and intimately moving freedom.
