Chloé – Sometimes (Revisited 2018) taken from Endless Revisions Live on Lumière Noire out 11 January 2019
Musicians have a tendency not to stay in place. They have a need stay in motion, to get lost (maybe in order to better find themselves), to step out of their comfort zones and prod their work into new forms, to turn a mirror to their output – and stare into it themselves. These are, among others, the reasons that motivated the first live recording made of tracks from Endless Revisions, Chloé’s first LP in six years – an album that saw the musician achieve a higher echelon in her creative prowess. A multi-faceted Pandora’s box of mysterious drifts, the album is anchored by strong tracks like The Dawn and Recall. An artist who deliberately plays with labels, taking in contemporary and novel forms, boldly launching into experimentation (as demonstrated by her collaboration with percussionist Vassiléna Sérafimova), Chloé wanted to take the album’s tracks and transform them in front of an audience by feeding them with new textures and inspirations.
