listening ears open wide awaiting impulses
triggering synapses to bridge experiences
from that of the known to that of the unfamiliar
from brain to bloodstream, the sensation is one in which, one could lose themselves within the minutest of details
because in an instant the landscape to a new opening appears, a welcoming is there calling one to share ones truths
take comfort in the stimulative wide open listening

Les Graciés “XPO 201-3”
While it is noted that these sessions were recorded from 2012-2013. No dust has settled on these free-roaming percussive ideas.
The nine-minute composition Into Wheel (LG) Version, by Les Graciés, carries a sheets of sound element to it. While the broken beat rhythmic pattern charges forth, two different atmospheric ideas pass the baton forward. It’s not an evolve or devolve move, more of a blossoming or giving away to another cordial and wooly audible. Gaël Segalen and Eric Douglas Porter aka Afrikan Sciences, collectively self-described as the “French-American tandem of a brother & a sister in sound”, play sonic hot potato by exchanging these on the fly phrasings. Operating as low and high-frequency call and response notations until the track evaporates out through a trap door amid a blitzkrieg of sound manipulation.
