pan y rosas release bimo by brice catherin and jacques demierre!

after his diploma of composition with michael jarrell in 2006, brice catherin willingly stepped away from the contemporary music institutions in order to develop very freely a few activities: multi-instrumental cellist, improviser, composer and art performer. these activities fed into each another, so that beyond his multidisciplinary shows and improvised concerts, he has never stopped composing and premiering written pieces.

most of his recent projects explore the idea of democracy in art: the artists’ individual responsibilities and their place in the social group as well as those of the members of the audience are challenged and questioned.

jacques demierre is half-composer, half-pianist, half-improviser, and half-performance-artist. brice thinks he is the wisest of them all.

together they are an improvisational duet playing only ancient instruments, in various venues, with or without guests. some people really enjoy what they do, and some people hate what they do. one of the latter wrote an article in a regional paper about how badly they had performed. they recorded this album, with and without outstanding guests, over two sunny days in a former post office.
