« De la musique avant toute chose et pour cela préfères l’impair » Paul Verlaine
« French language is reputed for being the language to express love. XVIth century poets write with invigorating freedom, with impertinence and were admired by Verlaine who magnified them with overflowing vividness. the words tell« make love», the words tell the bodies, sweatness, sighs and also torment, hopes, pains with moving crudeness and amused casualness. Death is always nearby, love death, in french, just change a vowel with the conson et you jump from death to love.
With Pierre Ronsard, Louise Labé, Paul Verlaine, Charles Baudelaire, Raymond Queneau poems etc…, David Rueff, and Nadine Esteve compose an abundant musical univers with odd rythms and haunting melodies.
Imitating the East danse song where sadness is always coloured with joy, and where enthusiasm is often nostalgic the 3 musicians of IMPAIRES (Brigitte Cirla, Nadine Esteve et Magali Rubio), use french as a language of happy nostalgia and sensual preciosity.
