Le Lisse et le Strié’ is a new work by french composer François J. Bonnet, released under his project name Kassel Jaeger. Based in Paris, Bonnet is the Director of INA-GRM. He is also a writer and theoretician (The Order of Sounds, A Sonorous Archipelago and The Infra-World have been published in english by Urbanomic). As a musician, Bonnet has been collaborating with artists such as Stephen O’Malley, Oren Ambarchi or Jim O’Rourke and most of his recent work has been published by Editions Mego.

Le Lisse et le Strié’ has been conceived as an exploration of the two antagonist concepts of smooth” and striated”, applied to the realm of electroacoustic sounds. If the smooth” is linked to nomos” as an open space of organic distribution, the striated”, on the contrary, is associated to logos”, as an enclosed space defined by a grid.

Elaborating a dialogue between these aspects, Kassel Jaeger draws an intermediary space where pulsations become textures and layers, and where rhythmic elements are found in the qualities and bodies of sounds instead of being functionalised, pre-determined sound objects, abstracted and frozen onto a temporal grid. The concept of striated” is audible only through the sonic landscape it inhabits, like the stripes of the camouflage fur of wild animals only exist as such in the woods and long grass, disappearing into a potential uselessness in a desert plain.
