    Diatribes mixes percussion, piano, and software in the interest of sonic exploration. As heard on their recent Insubordinations netlabel release, they take an approach firmly rooted in the clanky, fluid, theoretically rigorous yet sonically elastic techniques of European free improvisation. Witness Cyril Bondi (drums, percussions) and D’Incise (laptop, objects) mixing it up with pianist Jacques Demierre and Johann Bourquenez: “Chants Évadés” is all fragmented pianism and round-the-outside drumming, but shot through with wavering synthesized sound, a groggy drone that holds the whole thing together. “Et Puis Partir,” in contrast, is more willfully haphazard, less about anything closely approximating song, and more a matter of noise for its own intrinsic sake, each instrumentalist locating small sounds, from hazy upper-register playing by Demierre, to tribal taunts from Bondi. The introduction of D’Incise’s laptop into the sound world of free improv makes perfect sense, given free improvisation’s ever-present focus on using familiar instruments to make all manner of unfamiliar noises. The laptop expands that palette considerably, and at no point in these sets stands out as inappropriate or jarring.

    Subtle Free Jazz | Insubordination(s) Netlabel is a good address when it comes to quality Jazz and Jazz-related music in Netaudio. The label is run by Geneve sound activist Laurent Peter aka d’incise, who’s responsible for the glitches in Diatribes as well. For “Piano(s)”, Diatribes is accompanied by Jacques Demierre and Johann Bourquenez of Plaistow.
    Jacques Demierre uses the piano as a source of sound rather than a classical instrument. Part Cecil Taylor part John Cage, his play is full of little noises and surprising tonal cascades, percussive and herein the perfect complement for Cyril Bondis’ poetic and introspect drums. Between the clusters, there is a lot of space- or none. A refreshing and rich concept that requires concentrated listening admittedly.
    On two tracks, Plaistow head Johann Bourquenez joins the gang. His approach to piano is much different from Demierre’s delicate boned experimentalism. “Tornade” rushes the listener with the energy of a, well, tornado and leaves the wastelands, Jacques Demierre and Diatribes can perform their subtle improvisations on afterwards.
