On Crossing the Ridge “Wallis: die Besten 18 aus 350”

press release

“I also greatly enjoyed the second half of Glough by René Baptist Huysmans. The ‘beast’ established at the beginning and soon captured is left to die slowly. But this was not staged spectacle, not a hunter lauding it over his defeated prey. Instead this was (to me at least) a shared experience. I didn’t just hear the sound die, I felt it die, I shared the time and space in which that death took place. The ‘death’ is, of course, purely metaphorical.

Musicuratum, René Baptist Huysmans’ EP ‘Dawn of the Anthropocene’

“René Baptist Huysmans comes next with an intriguing imaginary collage or composition he named Kurgan.

'My musical taste as well as my urge to create a new piece seems to be propelled by a desire for an all enveloping musical shape. My favorite percussion instruments turn out to be trains in stations, my favorite ensemble are construction workers at a site. A train journey from Amsterdam to Berlin can be a six-hour-symphony', says René.”

“Dans Embryon, Mohamed Aroussi renoue avec « la danse de l’ombre » dans un solo très radical, au sol, où la chair et les membres du corps semblent retrouver un état animal. Le support sonore répétitif de René Baptiste Huysmans, évoluant sous l’effet de longs processus, rejoint le minimalisme de la danse.”
