Missing chain between Nirvana and Sun Ra, the alliance between Delphine Joussein, Rafaëlle Rinaudo and Blanche Lafuente aims at pushing their instruments beyond their limits, with the enthusiasm of a mad scientist in front of his vials. Flute, harp, drums: a rare combination that this trio turns upside down. In the wake of John Zorn's experiences on the borders of jazz and noise, Nout imagines its music as a scenario with surprising twists: we believe to be the characters of Alien and we find ourselves in Indiana Jones; we start with our eyes shut on a red movie theatre seat and we end up rocking on the dancefloor.
Like the Egyptian goddess whose name was borrowed for this project, the three musicians like to switch from day to night, as architects of time, tempo and storms. Interior day, with dreamlike tracks that wind around emotions. Exterior night, at a time when everything is permitted, with noisy and cathartic trances. Born from an impromptu 2020 session, Nout follows the journey of its members, influenced by jazz as well as noise, electro or classical music. Because in the end, what brings these three tireless "gleaners" (to use the beautiful expression by Agnès Varda) together is the desire to play with one voice. A voice that can turn angry, hypnotic, funny, fragile or ecstatic. A voice that takes pleasure in being soft before suddenly exploding to make its world tremble. In short, a voice ready to set all conventions on fire in order to reach this obscure object of desire which is freedom.
