Guillaume Gargaud and Eero Savela: Syyspimee CD
French guitarist, composer and improviser Guillaume Gargaud and Finnish trumpet player Eero Savela join forces again for SYYSPIMEE
SYYSPIMEE (the darkness of autumn in Finnish) follows the 2020 release ‘Helsinki' and sees them continue to explore texture, timbre, and tone through improvised compositions with wonderful moments of light and shade.
Guillaume’s minimal guitar sonics draw from both the Jim Hall school of melody and the dissonant avant-abstractions of Derek Bailey as he stabs, plucks and pull at his acoustic strings with a delicate precision, while Eero Savela’s haunting, mellifluous horn lines float gracefully in space.
Guillaume Gargaud has played on some twenty-nine albums, and has composed a substantial body of music for contemporary dance and cinema. He has collaborated with Stephen Grew (UK); Conserveries Mémorielles (Quebec); Burton Greene, Marc Edwards, Ben Bennett, Henry Kaiser Jack Wright (US); Korvat Auki Ensemble (Finland); and many more.
Eero Savela is a Finnish trumpet player who is interested in exploring rhythm and freedom. He works in interaction with other performing arts; dance, circus, theatre, sound & media art as a performer, musician and composer. He has lately worked with Atmosfärg, Paradox Box, Secretones and Astro Can Caravan.
