8/10 according to on Wed 05 Jun, 2013

Sylvain Chauveau and a couple of buddies have conspired to make this lovely CD of gently picked guitar and tinkly percussion on Flau. On it the trio play acoustic guitars and glockenspiels alongside other esoteric percussion and a toy organ, carving dense otherworldly polyrhythms which repeat in hypnotic, soothing swells.


Some of the songs hinge around extreme repetition, while others, like the particularly impressive ‘Sonando 5’, have more of a dream-like soundtracky feel which reminds me a little of The Kramford Look but with relaxed, organic shades of Jose Gonzalez or Ralfe Band. Thoroughly enjoyable and impeccably tasteful stuff, treading that thin line between arty minimalism and head-nodding accessibility.

Press release

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 spend two years composing, recording and mixing the seven pieces of the Soñando 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 looks like an original mix of rhythmic patterns assembled together like the pieces of a puzzle.
