Entre Chien et Loup by Bouche Bée is a six-track album that has been carefully put together from a selection of improvisation sessions recorded in my studio in Thornton Heath between 2017-19.

“ Film-like, the sonic textures summons distant places, but these faraway scenes are rapidly dispelled by the proximity of their source. That is, the richly undisguised material ground of wood, throat, string and metal. Mysterious, not mystifying, these conflicting mechanisms are held in tension throughout this fascinating artwork." (Vicky Smith, April 20)

"An engulfing spaciousness. Carefully guiding you, at other times an abrupt difference. Get your VR goggles; an association of nature mediated through technology. Sound with a feeling of intention and lightness, later heavy and laughter. Minimal elements explored. Turned over in the mouth, taste savoured." (Edward Shipsey, April20)

Entre chien et loup is a multi-layered French expression. It is used to describe a specific time of day, just before night, when the light is so dim you can’t distinguish a dog from a wolf. It also expresses the limit between the familiar, the comfortable and the unknown.

The idea of making a CD out of these recordings only came a few months after we stopped these sessions. Because we missed them, because we felt that we had made some interesting works worth sharing, works that were quite different from what we had performed live.
