0 Sonando (CD, £13.75)label: Flau
0 is a French band directed by Stéphane Garin (percussion), Joël Merah (acoustic guitar) and Sylvain Chauveau (acoustic guitar, glockenspiel), whose line-up can change for each project with the addition of regular guests. They have released several records and have toured in Europe. The trio of Merah, Garin and Chauveau have spent two years composing, recording and mixing the seven pieces of the 'Sonando' album (dreaming, in Spanish). This chamber folk suite is entirely played with acoustic instruments (guitar, glockenspiel) and small pieces of metal collected by Stéphane Garin for their special sound and tuning. In quiet spaces, this repertoire can even be performed without any microphone or amplification. The result sounds like an original mix of rhythmic patterns assembled together like the pieces of a puzzle.
