Product Notes

Supersonic Riverside Blues aka Franck Vigroux is a French avant-garde musician operating on the borders of rock, jazz, electronic and contemporary art music. Multi instrumentalist and composer Franck Vigroux is part of the coterie of French experimentalists that have been raiding the borders of all genres of music since the 2000\'s. He leads many projects, applying musical composition and interaction with new technologies and improvisation, as well as use of, turntables, vintage synth in improvising performance and studio work. \'A blast of analogue noise heralds Data 4.5.1 but within 20 seconds it's clear the listener isn't going to be subjected to yet another round of harsh circuit abuse. French sound artist Franck Vigroux (aka Supersonic Riverside Blues) identifies his practice as a mix of electro-acoustic and electronica, though to these ears his music has a more visceral quality. Vigroux's sound sources are hard to identify, though his signature sound appears to be a vintage synth doused in modern digital effects. Submerged voice samples and turntable scratches rise up from the reverbed depths, but this primarily remains a watery realm of synthesized texture, appropriately one more river-like than oceanic, as the music is carried forward by subliminal 4/4 rhythms. Vigroux commendably avoids over-reliance on traditional drum sounds, instead creating repetitive pulses out of bass notes or looped clicks. With it's appeal to both the noise crowd and the dance floor, Supersonic Riverside Blues exists in the same liminal space as Toronto's Nifty or Science of Breath-era Polmo Polpo. The academic crowd's chin stroking may turn to self-strangulation, however, if they stick around for the album's closer, "Electric City," wherein Vigroux drops all pretensions in favour of pounding, epic house. (D\'Autres Cordes)By Jonny Dovercourt EXCLAIM! Même si on connaissait déjà la grande diversité des goûts et des styles musicaux transparaissant aux travers de ses productions, qu\'il s\'agisse de ses albums solos comme Triste Lilas, ou de ces collaborations, comme le très recommandable Hums de Terre avec Elliott Sharp, le guitariste Frank Vigroux semble repousser encore davantage ses limites, sur ce très nerveux et technoïde projet Supersonic Riverside Blues. En effet, si \'Diva\' ou \'Drame\' palpitent toujours aux confins d\'un singulier croisement post-industriel et électro-acoustique bien identifié, si \'You prefer boys\' garde cette distanciation transie à base de voix proche du hörspiel, des pistes comme \'Walker\' ou \'Placer 451\' lorgnent davantage du côté d\'un Pan Sonic en pleine déferlante live tandis que c\'est une post-techno hardcore et futuriste qui s\'invite sur des titres comme \'Zabrisky point\'. Une nouvelle étape plutôt concluante en tout cas pour un artiste au parcours musical débridé. Laurent Catala, Octopus en Ligne.
