ESSMAA on tsuku boshi


ESSMAA is a collection of audio works reinterpreting the Tunis local tones
by an international array of sound artists.
ESSMAA includes exclusive new works created especially for this release.

Dumping in the local tones, the disorder of the distribution or the
understanding of the musical reins and the daily tones, the invited
musicians create a space in suspension, their space of interpretation.
More really “here” (the place of recording, the place of life of the
auditors to whom this disk will be offered), but certainly “not over
there” (the place of composition of the musicians), the listener ( re ) –
builds a unique and personal perception, by assemblies of small parts of
his aural memory.”Essmaa” (“Listen” to in Arabic) proposes a temporary
intersection between the outside and the ” daily initial bubble “. An
experience of listening.. An intervention extern for a second reading of
the everyday life. An awareness of the immediate sound environment, its
atmosphere and its impact..
