ALIQUID from France at El Sawi Cultural Centre

And continuing with Cairo Contemporary Days, a festival of extremely original music, on Friday May 25, 2012 at 8:00 PM El Sawi Cultural Centre in Zamalek will host a performance of improvised music from the French duo ALIQUID.

What is the relationship between a saxophone and a VCS3 analog synthesizer coughing and spluttering?
The sound of Jean-Marc Foussat has the thickness of the reality of chaos and explosions in the furnace of Paris' banlieu. That of Sylvain Guerineau is a clear river. Their music is like a melted snowflake metamorphosing into a destructive avalanche. It is a wonderful nightmare that you will leave with regret.

Jean–Marc Foussat: VCS3 Synthesizer, Electronics, and Voice
Sylvain Guérineau: Tenor Saxophone
