“Il est d’usage d’appeler monstrueux l’accord inaccoutumé d’éléments dissonants, mais j’appelle monstrueux toute originale inépuisable beauté.” Alfred Jarry cité par Claude Maillard-Chary
The first meeting of Robin Storey (Rapoon) and Pierre Jolivet (Pacific 231) took place back in 2007, when Old Europa Cafe released their split album "Palestine", dedicated to the memory of Bryn Jones (Muslimgauze). This time they team-up for a fulltime real collaboration, presenting their unique musical visions. The album is quite different from both artists' traditional styles, showing up the kind of synergetic effect embraced in sound. The long form, contemplative and mind expanding tracks are sequenced in time eliminating journey.
