Jocelyn Robert
Cycloides


This is the first release in GD Stereo’s Improvisational Architecture series. Cyclo´des is a work for disklavier by artist Jocelyn Robert. Trained as an architect, Jocelyn left the profession in 1989 to concentrate on situationist strategies in art: urban performances, “derive” inspired projects, recordings from buildings and soundtracks for cities.

Jocelyn writes: “sound as a set of physical, political, geographical forces, which, when working in a network, create a situation we call music. The concept of mistakes in music has always been one that intrigued me. My first player piano project, Le piano flou, was made twenty years ago from that starting point. The pieces I wrote then were composed from an analysis of what could be called mistakes in my —below average— piano playing. In this new work, Cyclo´des, the software doesn’t anaylize mistakes or odd notes : it simply keeps them in. No forgetting, no forgiving. This project is a series of live improvisations, in which software keeps the notes I played and forces me to take them as the basis for the next ones, whether I liked them or not, whether they were right or wrong. The music continuously comes back unto itself, reaffirming its instant past, in an almost cyclic manner, in a cyclo´dic one.”

A compact disc release in a 5” X 7” sleeve. Printed with non-toxic inks on recycled paper by Rolling Press via Middlepress in Brooklyn NY.

An aural and tactile experience in a limited edition of 200.
