Music by Michel Godard. Jazz, Improvisation and the sound of perfume: a synaesthetic music project
Michel Godard (serpent), Sébastien Marq (recorder), Gavino Murgia (voice, saxophone), Patrice Héral (percussion), Gérard Marais (guitar)
Perfume makers and musicians use a similar language. They speak of chords, of notes, of harmony. Michel Godard and perfume maker Ursula S. Yeo present a dialogue between sound and fragrance. The perfume maker created her „chords“ according to the original compositions by Michel Godard. During the recording sessions, Ms Yeo’s different perfume creations were spread out in the room, giving the musicians the possibility to “respond”: This is how the improvisations on this album came to life.
Enclosed in the CD there is a small Yeo perfume sample, originally designed for this project.
