Swarming Reissues Eric La Casa, Jean-Luc Guionnet, and Dan Warburton's ‘Metro Pré Saint​-​Gervais’


During the early to mid 2000s, Mike Bullock ran a record label called Chloë. One of its releases was from Eric La Casa, Jean-Luc Guionnet, and Dan Warburton. It was entitled Métro Pré Saint Gervais and, as its title suggests, was recorded live at the Paris Métro station. The recording took place on a late July evening in 2001 and found the three musicians "experimenting real-time music in daily life.” Guionnet played alto sax, Warburton played violin, and La Casa used his microphones. Swarming, Eric La Casa’s label, has just reissued it.

Métro Pré Saint Gervais runs 64 minutes across its two tracks and is limited to 300 copies. You can stream the album above or purchase it via the label’s Bandcamp page here or the label’s own website here.
