DescriptionRêve Parisien. English: Cover art of Rhys Chatham's 2011 album Rêve Parisien.
I. De ce terrible paysage, Tel que jamais mortel n'en vit, Ce matin encore l'image, Vague et lointaine, me ravit. Le sommeil est plein de miracles! Par un caprice singulier J'avais banni de ces spectacles Le végétal irrégulier, Et, peintre fier de mon génie, Je savourais dans mon tableau L'enivrante monotonie Du métal, du marbre et de l'eau.
RÊVE PARISIEN features four new Rhys Chatham compositions that were performed live at Kassay’s exhibition at Art: Concept in Paris in 2010, and loosely functions as an audio catalogue to the exhibition. RÊVE PARISIEN contains compositions that were both performed live and used as a soundtrack through Kassay’s exhibition. These compositions mark a change in direction for Chatham, who has abandoned the trumpet style he developed in the nineties for a non-distorted, less effects-driven sound that compliments his minimalist compositions and his free jazz training. The LP is packaged in a stunning.
On Rêve Parisien, Chatham has developed a way to create this process himself, the lone trumpeter as composer/performer, layering musical idea upon musical idea until a sense of equilibrium ensues, one hovering between ecstasy and tranquility.
