Imagine that it is summer in the mid-2000's, you are in the south of France in a small hamlet & there is a concert in the community house.
You arrive to see a guitar player & singer, a bass player, a trumpet player & a percussionist playing elements found in the kitchen, all playing, what sounds like the "bleus".
There is a tension in the space as it takes time for partitions to be found among the myriad of papers before the players then they play the bleus, the bleus, the bleus...

These bleus in different scales & imagery are provided by Tori Kudo & his project Maher Shalal Hash Baz captured live on cassette at Hameau de la Brousse, on the 26 of June 2007 during their first tour in France.

Years later this cassette is duplicated into a limited edition by the Brussels, Belgium based label Hôtel Rustique & you happen to see it right here on the internet.

You notice a string of song titles with indecipherable codes, you figure out that BDJ = Blues du Jour, Em or Cm or whatever indicates the chord & the other numbers indicate the date of composition.
