With brilliance and sensitivity, Béatrice Graf combined the areas of sound experimentation — transforming them in scenes which subtly work on the relationship between sound and image — with periods of more standard music, but always surprizing us with the means of creating sounds (pans, seashells, cardboard boxes, apples, etc.). Bref was a success that delighted the public." Gyumri-Armenia 2008"
New- York Jazz Review : Béatrice Graf - Transhumance
Béatrice Graf’s Transhumance is a two-disc anthology of free duets with John Menoud (guitar), Nicolas Maret (vibes), Reto Suhner (alto sax), Peter Schärli and Hilaria Kramer (trumpet), Lucien Dubuis (bass clarinet), Samuel Blaser (trombone) and Bruno Amstad (vocals), all recorded live and “on location” - in a field; a forest; by the waves of a beach or the waters of a fountain; in a Greek pavilion; an elegant manor; even on a mountainside. Graf’s playing is patently imaginative, at times tastefully reserved, at others fully extroverted, drawing on an array of found percussion implements. Her eclectic cast of musical character actors renders a satisfying pastiche of soundscapes and styles that holds up well over two discs.
