de temps en temps sinon jamais – Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola & Clementine Deluy
“de temps en temps sinon jamais” is Clémentine Deluy’s letter to Pina, her gentle lullaby to the one that is no more, to the one that will always accompany her. If memory’s nature brings itself to fade, to transform, to deform, the same memory, ungraspable and ever fleeting, feeds and comforts. To share this intimate declaration she invites Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola, who joins his voice to hers. Aquiet shared song, de temps en temps sinon jamais is not a lament, neither an homage, but the whispered confessions of Clémentine to Pina, of Clémentine and Juan Kruz to one another.
