Comprised of twelve musical parts, Le Miroir des Ondes was composed around and from various news events that occurred between 1972 and 1989.
With it, Michel Blanc wanted to translate into music his own feelings about some events that crossed his life at the time, with the idea to convey to the listener a sound space that could penetrate his/her imagination, whether or not he/she would be aware of the events.
The choice of instrumentation for this project is based on major musical aesthetics of the time, namely: contemporary music, rock, concrete music and improvised music, and jazz derivatives.

About Ayler Records

Founded in 2000 in Sweden by Jan Ström and Åke Bjurhamn, Ayler Records has gained recognition among free jazz fans over the years by releasing both archive and contemporary recordings from artists as diverse as Jimmy Lyons, Noah Howard, Peter Brötzmann, William Parker or Charles Gayle, as well as documenting the Scandinavian free jazz scene.

In 2009, Ayler Records moved to France where it is now operated by Stéphane Berland who had joined the label in 2005, bringing with him the will to open the catalogue to forms of improvised music in less direct relationship with the free jazz history, while remaining faithful to the original spirit.
