London-based French composer Angèle David-Guillou makes audacious music that explores the interaction between rhythm and melody, structure and emotion, permanen. In 2008 David-Guillou had purchased a second-hand upright piano, her first piano since childhood, and somehow squeezed it into a room at the top of the stairs in her south London flat. Falling instantly in love with the instrument all over again, she began composing on it straight away. The resulting material would ultimately appear on the album ‘Kourouma’ (named after the Ivorian anti-war author Ahmadou Kourouma), released in 2013 by Village Green.
