This second solo outing from Etron Fou Leloublan's Ferdinand Richard finds him fashioning eight stunning assemblages of elegantly enfolded R.I.O. audio origami as a compliment to texts in eight different languages. Richard's nimble bass bobs and parries alongside his sparring partners here (V-Effect/Fish & Roses' Rick Brown, Virgule 4's Christiane Cohade and Skeleton Crew's Tom Cora); his trademarked asymmetrical grooves and thrumming woody tone tempered here by a more spare and delicately hued approach that he'd continue to elaborate on latterly via his Bruniferd and Fred and Ferd projects. Masterful.
