FANTôME est ce qu’il est, une mousseline insaisissable, quelque chose qui s’éteint et qui hante, une entité qui vibre à d’autres rythmes que ceux communément admis. FANTôME erre, traverse les murs, se pose sur l’épaule de l’auditeur et lui susurre un tremblement particulier, une répétition intime.

- Franpi Barriaux, Citizen Jazz

FANTôME’s project is clear: to play repetitive music falling within the wave of Terry Riley or Steve Reich by adding tones, timbres and forms from improvised music and free jazz. A research on sound and a certain expressiveness coexist with loops, shifts and repetitions-variations. Music becomes a matter in perpetual motion. The few hints of dialogue are soon swallowed up by the whole because, in this group, no voice wins over the others, and, conversely, all of them are intimately interdependent. As creators of a vibratory and sensitive experience, the musicians are the passers of a flow coming from elsewhere which exceeds them.
