about

For the past two decades, guitarist Rémi Saboul has been exploring the realms of contemporary and improvised music, often turning unexpected corners and preferably straying from the straight and narrow main roads.

In musical territories as diverse as those occupied by projects like Drive Blind or “rinôçérôse” as well as numerous jazz ensembles, composing theatre soundtracks and soundscapes, he has time and again managed to bring his inner music to the fore.

At present, Rémi takes to the stage all by himself to represent the intimacy and personal character of a project called MY TIGER SIDE, which consists of extended instrumental pieces during which he takes the time to attain a degree of sobriety with a whispering rather
than an overtly present guitar.

MY TIGER SIDE «1» is the first album released in June 2013 in a numbered limited edition of 100 copies on 160 gram vinyl. The record contains tracks which were part of a series of improvised sessions, recorded in analogue, as well as a six part piece shaped like a classical mass (a reference to The Electric Prunes and Pierre Henry).


Some press quotes:

“Two worlds get entwined in a highly intimate way here: one is mechanical, the other organic. This ambient music not unlike Bill Frisell’s exudes a type of darkness which reminds us of the shadowlike atmosphere present in some of David Lynch’s movies.”
JM Poirot 2012

“My Tiger Side is a blend of minimalism and aspiration, of experiment and sensitivity with regard to the movements of the heart and of nature.”
benzine mag 2013 Denis Zorgniotti

“In six movements, we are transported into the higher realms, a sensation almost too overwhelming to grasp, as if Mark Hollis found the will to spread his arms wide open in asceticism. One has to be fond of those moments during which one does nothing but wait and
get used to time, then asks of it that it does not thrust itself upon as like some wild animal would.”
A decouvrir absolument 2013 Gerald de Oliveira

about

my tiger side France

"an album of bare and subtle musicianship, whose intimacy in a sense contrasts with the voices used to intone that musicianship. The delay- and reverb-drenched guitars in combination with the keys – whether imposing their will as thunderous organ or beguiling from afar as celestial synth, present a vision that is grand, not intimate, in scope.
