Instant compositions by all musicians,
recorded and mixed by Jean-Jacques Birgé
at Studio GRRR, Bagnolet (2010-2019)
except 1 and 4 at Studio 107 de Radio France, Tapage Nocturne
6 and 14 live at Le Triton
10 live at Studio 106 de Radio France, À l’improviste

Warm thanks to all the musicians who accepted my invitation and shared this joyful complicity, to mc gayffier who played with graphic constraints with the helpful Étienne Mineur, to the photographers (Sonia Cruchon, Elsa Birgé, Françoise Romand, Jean Rochard, Peter Gabor, Rémi Angeli…), to Richard Hayon for Sarajevo, to Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt for the Oblique Strategies game, to Bruno Letort and Anne Montaron for France Musique, to the Triton and to all those who trusted me…
