But what about the noise of crumpling paper which he used to do in order to paint the series of "papiers froissés" or tearing up paper to make "papiers déchirés"? Arp was stimulated by water (sea, lake, and flowing waters like rivers), forests. +1985ad lib

Grover Mills (for percussion and sequencer) +
Grovers Mill turns on two parallels visions of a trivial event :

- the radio broadcast from the Mercury Theatre directed by Orson Welles and based on Herbert George Wells's The War of the World

-  The evocation of the musical context in using samples of pieces writthen by the american composers who lived in the period covering 10 years between 1929 and 1938.

These samples are processed and structured altogether as a raw sound material, not as anecdotal quotations.
The result, recorded to be broadcasted live, is in direct relation with the score of two of the percussionists. These ones also manage the synthesized or sampled sounds.
The three other instrumentalists establish a more conventional acoustic ensemble, with selective digital effects.
