The Franco-Swiss group produces a music where each influence, however deep, is cut into motifs that have become themes, it is not a question of breaking the models but of making them exist, cut into the rock like so many fragments to be reconstructed.
There is no starting or finishing line, no usual couplets, these are lost as soon as the body receives its first shocks… There are obstacles erected as statues, familiar strangers, snippets heard elsewhere, or even multiplied angles, and so many repeated gestures.
La Tène’s intention is not to arrange or reinvent a music that is still alive, but to weave each thread into a new groove again and again until it is exhausted.
