"The recording of "Mobiles/motifs" is yet another piano story. I intended to do it at home with the help of two friends, Sarah and Christian. But then my little straight piano broke while tuning, and is still being repaired. So we ended up at Sarah's place during three abundantly snowy February days, and what you can hear on these six tracks is her beautiful Pleyel. The "Mobiles" side is that collection of small musical pieces, hopefully light but also a bit mind-numbing, that can be heard all along "Mille Plateaux", "Rares sont les nomades", and "Elizabeth Shadow"; and the "motifs" side is the rest - what makes the mobile move...
The memory of my father Jean-Loup, who died last winter, was with me all the while, especially on "Rares sont les nomades" and on the hidden track (let's name it: "1001 nuits")."
