De Mòrt Viva - Sourdure (CD)
Constructed like an invented tarot deck, De Mòrt Viva explores the idea of a contemporary paganism in ten jubilant, humorous and spiritual odes.
The Auvergne Occitan imposes itself at the spittoon, deploying its metaphorical and polysemic network, with the particular candor of a newly acquired language.
The melody is born from the word, the poem gives birth to the song, in a form that could recall from afar and without erudition, the trobar, the art of the troubadours.
In this game-album each piece describes a possible situation, with its typical emotions and stakes, its often reversible systems of forces whose meaning escapes Manichean thinking.
Drawing from the ageless figures of the Carnival, these ten arcane songs will perhaps bring to our consciences what to think differently about contemporary concerns.
Always hybrid and exploratory, Sourdure's music reveals itself here under a new face. Exoskeleton or chemical revelator, the electronics are camouflaged in the roughness of the song as if to disturb its contours. Carried away by an armada of percussions and wind instruments, the voice naturally takes its strong place, whispering, savoring the langue d'oc like a macerated wine.

"It’s all over in just over half an hour, but it’s a blast, and you’re not sure quite just what happened. Sourdure is here to show us how to dance in the ruins and to invite us to heal our relationship with the rest of the natural world." - Phil England, The Wire
"Sourdure is one of the key practitioners of a new French folk. On 'De Mòrt Viva', he gives us pieces with myriad ingredients jostling for attention – voices, bobbling percussion, car horn-like blares – achieving their own sort of lopsided equilibrium; the thunderously percussive. And it all sounds brilliantly, playfully, furiously alive." - David McKenna, The Quietus.
