ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Plays the idiom with relish, honest and grace - John Fordham, Guardian

d’Inverno is a fine pianist with a subtle touch and a lovely flow of ideas … performed with wit and panache”
- Ian Carr (BBC Music Magazine album of the month awarded to Joy by Mark d’Inverno Trio)

When Mark d’Inverno and François Pachet sat down to write the tunes that became the album ount on It, their aim was not to only to make beautiful music but also to explore, as scientists as well as musicians, the creative act itself. Not only they were able to investigate the nature of their collaborative process; they also created some very beautiful music, which has been recorded by Mark’s eponymous jazz quintet, featuring some of the biggest names in European jazz.
Mark is a professor of computing and head of research at Goldsmiths College, the south-east London creative powerhouse, while François is the director of the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris, which is where the two jazz musicians sat down to compose these tracks in the spring of 2012. On an earlier visit to Goldsmiths, François had displayed his “continuator”, an incredible robot that can pick up and develop human musical ideas. In Paris, where Mark
lived on a sabbatical, the pair saw themselves as “human continuators” – taking turns to generate ideas and build on them, all the while trying to understand the creative and editing process that was unfolding. Their composing sessions were recorded on video to allow them to minutely analyse the process. An unusually constrained musical partnership, but it definitely worked.
“We haven’t cracked all the secrets of creativity just yet, but we’re very, very happy with the music,” Mark says. “I know that I could never have written many of the songs without François, or he without me, so in that sense our collaboration was a success. “I hope more than anything that the compositions reach out to the listener in some way. We genuinely wrote tunes that we both love, never getting carried away with virtuosity in melody, harmony or rhythm but rather trying to strip a song down to its musical core.”
