Sylvain Rifflet Alphabet quartet Short Info

"Alphabet is a masterstroke. It's one of those records whose freshness, inventiveness and instant meaning send miraculously airborne. It will quietly conquer your personal world and nestle at the very top of that pile of records you always keep within reach." (maitrechroniquelight)

New group, new compositions, new sounds: Sylvain Rifflet introduces Alphabet. Alphabet is a mix of all his influences, from acoustic to electronic music, from pop-rock to contemporary music, from Tom Waits to Cliff Martinez alongside Steve Reich and Phillip Glass.

With flute player Joce Mienniel (National Jazz Orchestra, JM Machado ...), guitarist Philippe Gordiani (i-overdive trio, Libre Ensemble...) and percussionnist Benjamin Flament (Radiation 10, MétaLophone ...) he proposes music that is an evolution of Rockingchair, his previous band ("1:1" - Enja - 2010).

The drums are replaced by a set of "treated metals" that produce novelty in both colour and sound and offer great versatily for music ranging from "sharp-industrial" to the most delicate atmospheres.
