La Visite, Etienne's brand new album, more luminous and jazzy than its predecessor has been composed and produced within a two month period in the Versatile studio. It became a piece of introspection, mentally as well as physically. In the title track, for which Flop wrote the text, we hear Etienne travelling through the inside of a body, Fantastic Voyage style. It is always surprising to see a record taking shape. Etienne would arrive in the studio without any precise idea in head, approaching his work rather intuitively. He works standing up, which brings a different energy in every detail. He is in total mastery of his set-up, ready to capture that short-lived moment of true creation. The only use a computer has for him is to record his experiments - afterwards being mixed by Jerome Caron (Blackjoy). In between Night Music and La Visite, Etienne has not been lazy. Not only has he done numerous collabs (Joakim, Richard Pinhas, Francois & The Atlas Mountain) and picked up DJing he has also recorded a new Zombie Zombie album as well as the sound Loubia Hamra and he worked with artist Felicie D'Estienne D'orves on the installation Satori. At this very moment, Etienne and his saxophone are still part of the tour of James Holden.
