"Nec Mergitur"

From Unworks & Rarities

OISEAUX-TEMPÊTE are Paris based free rock multi-instrumentalists and improvisors Frédéric D Oberland and Stéphane Pigneul. Unworks & Rarities, their fourth album on Sub Rosa, is more than a collection of outtakes – it features unreleased live or studio material featuring elements of jazz, punk, noise, poetry and minimalism. The album features contributions from Gareth Davis on bass clarinet, GW Sok (ex The Ex) on vocals, Christine Ott on ondes martenot and more.
