Published in 2005, this is the first collaboration between Jean-Paul Dessy + Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles and a musician involved in electronic music scene (the second was dj Olive).

The adventure began in June of 2002 with two wonderful evenings at the Botanique (Brussels) devoted to crisscrossings and genre-stripping between electronic nomads and musicians, classically-trained composers eager to mingle with other forms. The " electronic stroller " Robin Rimbaud, explorer of urban interstices, was the first to answer our call and met with Jean-Paul Dessy in London to elaborate an approach to deterritorialized co-composition: cello sounds sampled during short improvisations and later reworked by Scanner; electronic sequences and textures chosen by the Belgian composer and for which he wrote strings parts. These are the terms of a dynamic exchange resulting in a work open to both digital gesture and acoustic composition. In addition to this piece, which is the centre panel of this album's triptych, Scanner and Jean-Paul Dessy each offered a solo electronics piece: the first integrating string sounds produced by the second, the latter choosing to strip down a previous composition of all its acoustic instruments, keeping only its animalistic essence (wolves and whales' cries) and treatments. Free exchanges between complementary sound worlds that keep feeding off each other through other residencies and performances, mirror effects distorting our preconceptions and generating fresh musical projections.
