 +**(Various) - Nantes Is Noise (fibrr)**
 +
 +
 +Fourteen tracks curated by Julien Ottavi to document, in part, the noise/​improvised music scene in Nantes. Interesting for this writer in that I was only familiar with 6-7 of the names involved so, at worst, I'd get a fuller picture of what's occurring there. Happily, "​noise",​ herein,
 +is not automatically taken as the equivalent of "loud onslaught",​ not by a long shot.
 +
 +Some highlights:
 +
 +--a short piece by Keith Rowe, "​W-O",​ opening the disc, quiet, intense, scrabbling.
 +
 +--Formanex (Anthony Taillard Emmanuel Leduc and Ottavi) offer another soft-edged work, with eerie moans and faint static over sharper slices and low hums. Not sure from when this derives, but good to hear the group is still functioning and producing strong work.
 +
 +--a fluttering work by Jerome Joy that sounds like a combination of electronics and insectile field recordings.
 +
 +--a lovely, gently wavering drone from Taillard
 +
 +--Jenny Pickett'​s field recordings ("In the clearing"​) which seem to include activity that may not be far afield from a Rowe/​Lambkinesque documentation of otherwise non-aurally centered activity
 +
 +--Ottavi'​s "Noise serie: Mouvement allegro",​ beginning with the intense mesh of sound one might expect before abruptly shifting to nighttime insect life, near silence, then a final burst of ultra-harsh static.
 +
 +(btw, Clinch'​s piece sounds remarkably like a further sped up veriosn of the sped up sections of Zappa'​s "Lumpy Gravy"​)
 +
 +As with almost any compilation,​ a mixed bag but a reasonably sold one and a good snapshot of a scene that's not otherwise well documented.

 +**NANTES IS NOISE (CD compilation by Fibrr)**
 +
 +The Bot CD has connections to Apo33, which is an organization from Nantes, busy with all sorts of experimental music, promotion and releasing thereof. Obviously there is the great venue in a former biscuit factory (as far as I can remember that) and there is a compilation with the city's finest in this area. Keith Rowe of AMM fame lives there, and we recognize such names as Formanex, Luc Kerleo, Mathias Delplanque, Julien Ottavi and Thomas Tilly, but there is also many new names to be discovered here, Wehwalt, Jerome Joy, Anthony Tailard, Jenny Pickett, Clinch, Semantik, Morosphynx and Dominique Leroy. Improvised music, noise, electronics,​ ambient, field recordings and all such like are presented here and while none of the tracks really stand out, there are no really weak brothers either. A fine collection. (FdW)
