French musician Yannick Dauby is known, and justly reknown, for his field-recordings around the world, and particularly of his country of adoption since 2007: Taiwan.
Here he slightly changes his tactics in order to approach a very different material. For this new piece he chose as sound sources various interviews / archives from INA and french radio of anthropologist and film-maker Jean Rouch talking about his film Les Maitres Fous. The film, made in 1955, is one of the most fascinating and rarest document showing the Hauka's voodoo rituals. Mainly composed of migrant workers from the countryside of Niger and Ghana, this community, principally found around the city of Accra, devised possession rites to imitate, to emulate and to mock the british colonial authorities, and thus steal their life forces. Dauby cuts and splices Jean Rouch's voice as he describes and comments the estonishing practices composing the ritual, and the frantic episodes leading to the initiates'trance.

----- chronique

Du coup tu reprends tout ton Jean Rouch depuis le début (et c'est pas toujours facile parce que le Jean Rouch du début c'est très informations Pathé) et puis tu te passes la cassette "Magicien-Rouch" de... Yannick Dauby.
J'ai déjà écrit du bien de ce monsieur qui fait danser les sons (avec Frédéric Nogray sur "Panotii Auricularis", manquait plus qu'il fasse danser des mythes. Des chants de possession basés sur l'ethnologue improvisé, des masques qui vomissent des mots, des tremblements, des dictées frisant la magique dictée (pardon pour l'anachronisme), des syllabes sur grillons...

”Ils rentreront chez eux, fatigués, n'ayant aucun souvenir de ce qui s'est passé" et la bande est accelérée, comme toutes les voix d'un concret qui ferait tâche, accélération / décélérations sur la face B. Et quand on ressort (on revient ?) des deux, c'est sous l'effet d'une hallucination sonore qui vous secoue du dedans, dont on se souvient avec plaisir ! [pc]
