ESSMAA is a collection of audio works reinterpreting the Tunis local tones by an international array of sound artists.
ESSMAA includes exclusive new works created especially for this release.
Dumping in the local tones, the disorder of the distribution or the understanding of the musical reins and the daily tones, the invited musicians create a space in suspension, their space of interpretation. More really "here" (the place of recording, the place of life of the auditors to whom this disk will be offered), but certainly "not over there" (the place of composition of the musicians), the listener ( re ) - builds a unique and personal perception, by assemblies of small parts of his aural memory."Essmaa" ("Listen" to in Arabic) proposes a temporary intersection between the outside and the " daily initial bubble ". An experience of listening.. An intervention extern for a second reading of the everyday life. An awareness of the immediate sound environment, its atmosphere and its impact..
