Hubbub – HOIB

French improvisational group, featuring: Frédéric Blondy, Bertrand Denzier, Jean Luc Guionnet, Jean-Sébastien Mariage, Edward Perraud. "Hubbub works on the sound matter and creates an expanded space inhabited by stripes, interlaced designs, resonances, tanglings, points and strokes, at the border of acoustic and electric worlds."

"From a line, and from's it's slowness, that vibrates, that, trembles, I say, that it is, no more talkative, than a cloud, of its likeness, or than a, gust of wind, in the trees, Now, felling, compelled, to produce words, I say, that it is no, more silent, than a fearful dog, than a satisfied cat, or, than a disturbed, cow, then all bark, purr, or moo, One calls, and the world, answers, One keeps silent, and the world, calls us. This is to be, at the heart, of a line, that vibrates, that trembles, The line dwells, on the side, of the, w o r l d." HOIB liner notes.
