Using text from newspaper articles and radio broadcasts by one journalist, spoken word artist Anne-James Chaton chooses a portrait out of his series of 100, and sets it to music. Le Journaliste combines voice recordings with multilayered soundscapes by guitarist Andy Moor.
Moor has a beautiful sound and his playing is very to the point. He paints fantastic abstract musical textures that go very well together with the voicework by Chaton. In a piece like Frequencies with extreme manipulations, it becomes hard to distinguish who is doing what. A very satisfying work of conceptual art.
