Let’s start with a quote from a review: “Agnès Pe throws in the happiness, the spontaneous playfulness & the fun that you feel connected too and yet so new that it will always surprise you. I can’t put my finger on it and say this is what I like of this sound and style unless it would be a gigantic enormous finger to basically point at the entire music piece at the same time. It’s so much fun that it really feels that this needs to be shared, spread and cared for…”
#11 of her series Mitt Paté is perfect. Why? Because happiness and fun is everything, if deep down below there is also a sense of anger. And while the old school noise-musicians expressed only anger, with here and there a hint of art brut and dada, Agnès takes the noise-grandad out for a wheelchair ride in the park and listens patiently to his rants ,-and we know she loves him, just look at her wipe the slobber off his chin.
She revives noise, she emancipates the ordinary pop song, she celebrates commercial music cassettes that have landed in the bin, she embraces the traditional tearjerkers from the past and she defines a starting point for a new genre that goes way beyond collage-art and plunderphonics. Her art links directly to a way of living, experiencing, observing, caring.
In her own words:
Mitt Pate # 11 is dedicated to a radical listening session held at the Summer Solstice Solokoetxe neighborhood in Bilbao on June 18.
The audience listened, closed his eyes, drew, danced or talked to his neighbor. Someone said not listen to music in a month. Capitalist listening, noise, layers, listening became oblique. The event lasted 3 hours and are summarized in half an hour. Confusion reigned there, the smile and the party came after all the buildup and the echo sound.
