Under The Reefs Orchestra is an instrumental power trio that blurs the lines between jazz and alternative rock. A sonic-minded trio of obsessive, biting riffs and mists of asymmetrical sonic cycles. Inspired as much by French chamber music of the 19th century as by Jim O'Rourke or Moondog, Under The Reefs Orchestra's hypnotic music unleashes a cosmic energy and leads the listener to a trance among underwater volcanos. Guitarist Clement Nourry's gentlemanly demeanor masks the great fiery passion of a true musical virtuoso. "I focus on one thing, and one thing entirely" says Nourry. For him, that one thing is the guitar. Combining the deep theoretically understanding of a skilled mathematician (which he actually is) with a true musician's soulful instinct, Nourry is as comfortable with John Fahey as he is with experimental jazz. To put it simply: he shreds. Nourry describes the record as: "An instrumental playground for melting folk influences, jazz from the 1950s and post-romantic music. A meditative trance fuelled by dark grooves, simple melodies and improvisations." This trip through the timeless realms of sound can be heard as a soundtrack of the ecological apocalypse we live in.
