French Duo Hovers Between Real and Surreal

Avallon's Aurélie Barbé and Benoît Rocco


Avallon is the French duo of Aurélie Barbé and Benoît 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.

Track originally posted at More from Barbé at The above picture of the duo is from the Avallon Facebook page, Avallon is based in Paris, France.
