Product Description

"Great compilation recorded at an artists' rural retreat in Belgium. Musicians include Larkin Grimm, Cam Deas, Micah Blue Smaldone, Jack Allett, Paul Metzger, Paul LaBrecque, Naa and daniel duchamP. As that list indicates, the music's mostly acoustic, with roots equally in neu volk and improv. LaBrecque (currently based in Belgium) collaborates with Grimm and Metzger to wonderful effect and this is a resplendent document of a special place."
(Byron Coley, The Wire #359)

Live recordings by daniel duchamP of concerts in the cellar (Caveau sauvage) or old horse barn (Écuries) of the Ferme du Biéreau in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) a.o. at the occasion of the musician’s residencies of Larkin Grimm, Paul Metzger and Cam Deas.

The title of the compilation refers to the etymology of the name Biéreau: Beau regard (in French) from Bia rwârt (in walloon): Beautiful sight.
