Angèle David-Guillou has reworked for organ a selection of tracks from her mesmerising sophomore album, En Mouvement.
Titled Mouvements Organiques, these five pieces echo the ideas and motifs of its counterpart. Yet, where En Mouvement is often busy with the interlocking melodies and shifting rhythms that define its character, Mouvements Organiques pares the music down to its essential qualities.
‘Vraisemblance’ has been transformed into three sprawling ambient pieces, ‘Mouvements Organiques’, parts I, II and III, drawing out its harmonic movement and expanding it almost beyond recognition. ‘En Mouvement’ and ‘Respiro’, meanwhile, retain much of their identity, yet take on new, restored forms in the hands of Angèle.
