Nicht Rio, a journey through sound: dense, teeming, vindictive and bewitching. These 3 improvisors – Lionel Malric: prepared piano, Yannis Frier: table guitar, amplified objects and Sébastien Bouhana: drums, percussions from the Grand Chahut Collectif like to emphasize the constant evolution of their music by not only using wide-ranging techniques inspired by concrete as well as electro-acoustic music, but also by customizing their instruments and exploring their timbres. Their music moves around, undulates, squeals and makes images spring forth. During their first tour in May 2010, the 3 members of Nicht Rio travelled in the South of France with a hundred-year-old baby grand piano. From Marseille to Toulouse, they shared the stage with artists such as Sébastien Cirotteau, Emmanuel Cremer, Charles Fichaux, Bastien Pelenc, Heddy Boubaker, Olivier Germain-Noureux and Laurent Rochelle. Their first concert as a trio was played in the Notre-Dame Chapel in the tiny village of Fabrezan during the “Son MiRé” festival. Here is the recording of this concert. As you will no doubt notice, a strong wind was blowing in the plain that day. Download “Title turtle” of Nicht Rio for free @ Insubordinations!
