Rien Virgule

NEWS


BIO

RIEN VIRGULE  is before everything else musically, the meeting of four people, islands of desires, tentacles that embrace each other. Or “the meeting of a soldering iron and an iceberg, a pigeon asleep in a packet of chips, a smashed path in a debaptized city” (according to J. Burgun).
For 8 years, two albums and numerous concerts, they have been peddling a generous, graceful and cold, intensely vibrating music.
In a radical and deviant approach to Pop music, the classical structures of verse-chorus serve as a playground and experimentation, where rhythmic, melodic and noisy functions merge.
In June 2019, Jean-Marc Reilla passed away. His homemade instrumentarium and laughter continue to resonate for his loved ones, and his memory lives on in the music of RIEN VIRGULE that has become a trio.

Anne Careil: texts, vocals, synthesizer
Visual artist, designer, gluer and sewer of masks and costumes, she writes and sings short poetic stories in Rien Virgule.
After many years practicing drawing and collage for publishing houses and music groups, she is currently directing, with the Compagnie Andréa Cavale, a show for young audiences of her invention, set to music by Manuel Duval.

Duval manual: horizontal synthesizers
Experimentation occupies a decisive place in his musical practice.
First on the guitar, then on various media (electronic circuits, feedback, MAO…), he now extends his research to synthesizers, both solo and in groups, notably in projects such as Rien Virgule or France Sauvage.
He is also the founder of the label La République des Granges, and runs the studio at La Grange Cavale in the Dordogne.

Mathias Pontevia: horizontal drums
He plays so-called horizontal drums, using bass drums and drums placed flat as a resonant body both for impacts and for various folds. Mathias Pontevia, in solo, duo or trio, carries out his musical, electronic or inter-media research, very involved in contemporary improvised music.
Solo Métaux lourds / Ruhland with Ian Saboya / trio Dieu with Jean-Sébastien Mariage and Heddy Boubaker / Bardak with Pavel Viry.
