“Provided for Courses”

After 5 years spent exploring improvised and noise guitar, Xavier Mussat opened a parenthesis without his usual instrument. He recorded abstract sound ambiances to be used as background sounds to accompany the work of his students during the intuitive drawing classes he gives. Here simplicity prevailed : he used the cheap internal microphone of his computer and several objects (bowls, balls, crumpled paper, table, and finally a hint of prepared banjo), as well as remixed sounds taken from videos of snowy landscapes. Experimenting with the austerity of a minimalist aesthetic, he extracted 4 tracks from these raw textures and materials.
