About the Album

Perhaps in reaction to the acoustic, calm and rather easy to follow All Words in World, I composed this mostly electronic song (with exceptions : vocals, two violins and a trombone; for this last one, a lo-fi recording that is electronic in quality) with plenty of frequencies that are never heard in acoustic chamber music). I didn't want any instrument or set of instruments to lead the way. This way, each instrument can build its own life. Frdric Szymaski adds guitars of electronic flavors. Viveka only needs two takes these days! The Stairs of the Unsteady (lyrics written by Vincent Berger Rond and modified by Viveka Eriksson) Unsteady makeup on the roof When she talks in a public place Her thought is dropped on the stairs She catches words on the way In panic Doesnt recognize herself What was the strength ? Exchanging priorities Not told to her Wrong way up New again Cant see it coming ! He was writing my words for me ! Cultural invasion !! Thirsty to her mouth Great ! Bring !! Bring !!! I get engaged I'm dying I prefer to live ! And still, I move in an apartment where the stairs dont give me remorses to follow A way out / to clinically survive / to be considered only during peace time I'm dying / and you follow / I prefer to live / and you follow To infiltrate the order of the thin and dry shrubs Follow...Follow... / Softness from a little father, these days dry A way out.. to allow him to finally say goodbye.. shrubs ! Softness From a little father These days dry ! Softness from a little From a little father From a little father These days dry To be brought to the river !

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
