Bergerrond (Berger Rond) présente la musique spasmacousmatique (all languages songs, schizophonia) de Vincent Bergeron sous son pseudonyme d'affirmation et de contradiction introvertie et extravertie. C'est dans le plaisir du jeu et de la complication volontaire et salutaire d'un monde meilleur. Ce monde on le voudrait plus honnête et expressif de réalités tangibles et en même temps fantastique et imaginaire, sans appui dans la réel. Nous y parlons bien de ces réalités souvent tenues dans le silence par peur des émotions et les extrêmes d'instabilité qu'elles peuvent amener (philosophie impossible ou trop facile, ennuyante à appliquer, relations sociales troubles, sexualité mal vécue, maladies mentales, environnements dangereux et à la dérive...). Cependant, le Berger Rond demeure une création imaginaire joyeusement à l'écart du concret. Également, Vincent peut lui-même être très rationnel et froid lors de la composition de ses instrumentaux alors il aime aussi se confronter lui-même pour mieux apprendre de la vie et en espérant aider les autres à sa manière. Il commence par aider les sons victimes d'injustice musicale par incompréhension. Il les accompagne et les encourage dans leur capacité à remettre en question les convictions bien pensantes. /// We talk really well of these realities often kept in silence by fear of emotions and unstable extremes that they can bring (impossible philosophy – or too easy, boring to apply – problems with social relationships and sexuality, mental diseases, dangerous environments, environmental causes...). At the same time, Berger Rond is still an imaginary creation that is joyfully not found in all things concrete or nice beliefs by average people.

Forecast Proof - A sixth album

As a composer, I am really happy about the diversity of this album, the instrumentations as usual, but also the tempos, the different lengths and the feeling that a listener can feel. It was a busy year, with two albums. It does take me quite a long time for every album I make. I am not the fastest composer, far from the one who never correct his partitions. Instead, I am trying to connect with evey chord and noise. The instruments rarely follow each others, don't often play the same chords at the same time.

The Stairs of the Unsteady

I composed this mostly electronic song (with exceptions : vocals, two violins and a trombone; for this last one, a lo-fi recording that is electronic in quality) with plenty of frequencies that are never heard in acoustic chamber music. I didn't want any instrument or set of instruments to lead the way. This way, each instrument can build its own life. Frédéric Szymañski adds guitars of electronic flavors. Viveka only needs two takes these days ! Now appears on Forecast Proof - 2009, available here.

All Words in World

Perhaps my most natural sounding composition; made with bass viole de gambe (such a terrific resonance, this instrument), cellos and violas, transversal flute (with haunting hiss), various heavy and light percussions. It features almost no dissonance and in terms of imagery, it is the alter ego of Bruissement de griserie. Perhaps, to fix a ship, we need to invent upside down navigation. Only two takes were needed by Viveka Eriksson, all these incredible vocals were in there !! Now appears on Forecast Proof - 2009, available here.

Philosophie Fantasmagorique

$5.00

Composition by Vincent Bergeron and collaborators.

Philosophie Fantasmagorique was composed with an imaginary movie in mind. All the lyrics were inspired by the movie script story, but don't always directly relate to it. The sentences wrote themselves in an hybrid form of English and French. I got used to this new musicality. This language approach is not a political statement – but it is if you want it that way. This project is only something that I hope suggests new ways to explore and a relief for someone who don't feel understood in this world (that's why I love songs so much).
