Avallon is the French duo of Aurélie Barbé and BenoÃ®t Rocco. Their combination, respectively, of electronic harp and vibraphone make for a genteel ambience. In “Une Autre Rive,”a third element enters the flow, a field recording of lapping water. Their instruments hover between the real and the surreal, between the documentary audio and a pervasive digital processing that snags pitches, tones, and textures and pushes the work beyond traditional notions of musicianship and into a realm of sonic experimentation.
