It’s nice to see horror from outside the US and Jacques Barbéri’s story (translated from the French by Michael Shreve) is full of frightening incidents as the trip becomes a descent into madness. This is effective horror.
-Chuck Rothman, Tangent
The most bizarre or surreal of the group must be “The Beast” by Jacques Barbéri. When you think you’ve got a handle on the speculative universe, the author pulls the carpet out from under you…as a surprise piece of okra amid the anthology stew, the story was a welcome surprise.
-Trent Walters, SF Site
Slowing is a “Literary” Performance mixing text, music and video. It interprets all facets of J.G. Ballard, master of the imaginary.
The group Palo Alto which, since 1989 has mixed culture jazz, rock and contemporary exploration, is made up of four musicians and one video artist:
Jacques Barbéri (saxophone, text, voice, laptop)
Philippe Perreaudin (synthesizer, tapes, laptop)
Denis Frajerman (percussion, guitars)
Laurent Pernice (double bass, laptop)
Gilles Bénéjam (video)
