For a long time, jazz violinist Françoise Derissen wanted to create a solo project. This wish has now become reality with her new CD “Cordes avides”, released on 6th December 2019 by “Home records” and with several concerts or planned and performed. All compositions are Françoise’s, except for one by her friend Renaud Lhoest. Even by herself, Françoise will make for different voices to resound simultaneously. Playing a five string violin as well as a regular one, by means of a loop station she at times she resembles a musical multi-limbed Shiva.. Now and then, strings and voice will mingle.
Her style? Hard to define exactly: improvised jazz, a few touches of folk and classical in the composition. The adventure is fascinating and Françoise loves to share it with you through her concerts and her new CD.
