HOQUETS - BELGOTRONICS (CD)


"Presenting a brand new, totally unique musical proposition: HOQUETS are an international musical trio who play instruments, also named "hoquets", personally assembled by hand from wooden boards, broken strings, tin cans and other cast away materials in their workshop in Brussels, Belgium. Named in reference to both "hockets" (the technique used in Western medieval music, Africa, Bali and elsewhere of sharing a melody line between several voices or instruments) and "hoquets" pronounced. HOQUETS are both without precedent and oddly familiar at the same time. The builders and players of these unique musical objects are a Frenchman (Francois Schulz, installation artist and founder of the band Vive le Rouge !: tenor hoquet), a Belgian (Maxime La Hung, instigator of Brussels label Matamore and ex-member of Some Tweetlove: bass hoquet) and an American (McCloud Zicmuse, founder of the Le Ton Mit project co-released on K Records, regular collaborator with Maher Shalal Hash Baz and constructor of self-built string instruments since the early nineties: high hoquet)."
