8/10 Mingus Staff review, 25 May 2007
ON: "Second Souffle" is a collaborative venture by Steven Hess, Sylvain Chauveau and Pierre-Yves Mace on the relatively new Brocoli imprint. This five track set sounds improvised, though as the sleeve denotes, Mace provides 'additional sounds, processing and mixing', which implies that a computer was probably used for these tasks in a studio. Throughout-we are treated to a micro-macro soundfield that encompasses; percussion, prepared piano (a piano with bits of stuff stuck in and on it, to be technical about it) and prepared guitar.These tools combine to emit the usual contrasting sounds, notes, textures, tones and drones found in most exercises in modern computer music, electro acoustic experiments and improvising ensembles. This set at once drags one into a soundworld of bristling charcoal brickettes, sustained driftwise tones, dynamic fluctations in volume and tension that call to mind a live improvisation and a somewhat near silent passages of micro-sounds that demand repeated and attentive listening. Something to digest slowly and carefully for a rewarding experience.
