MouthWind is the collective project of Lawrence Casserley, live signal processing and Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg, voice. Label Heyermears Hermes. Coproduced by Jozef Cseres.

''Listening as I write. Love it ! Coherent, tough, minimalist, great richness withing a wilfully limited common language. Sole sound source, JMVS’s buccal cavity, which morphs into a multiform spatial field thanks to Lawrence Casserley’s brilliant double role, situated in a constantly shifting way between extension of the voice and antagonistic gestures. Without ever giving in to the temptation of unnecessary washes.Thus, the voice keeps its humanity, fragility and fascination as an organ of communication, while at the same time becoming a machine. What a redefinition of the idea of partnership! There is not yet a word for a formation that navigates between duo and augmented solo … even for that quality alone, this album already deserves the status of non-genre “classic”.''

Steve Gibbs, classical and contemporay musics guitarist , musicologist, concert performer and improviser. Specialist of JF Bach, Haydn, Schönberg musics which he is transcribing for seven & eight strings guitar.
