channeling the two women from whom she borrows her pseudonym, sylvia monnier composes music that unfolds like a book: with parsimony, meticulousness and a heightened sense of phrases that are subtly linked, to tell a story, gently. telling a story? sylvia monnier rather recounts atmospheres, moments, environments... one would say they they are drones, ringing. but it's more so a sensitive collage of areas of sound, at first scattered and solitary, then superimposed upon each other to better abandon themselves. something feminine prevails here; as if we're facing the musical attempts of a boy who left a corner of provence and arrived in lyon, metamorphosed into a young girl. or the contrary. we no longer know. but we trust the spirit of the cassettes: the tapes of sylvia monnier - that we, without realizing it or growing tired, replay over and over - do not lie. aquestion of trust, a book that we reread again, year after year.

in my book one of the best drone act around. period.
