In July of 2019, Delphine Dora and Le fruit vert sojourned at La Becque artist residence in La Tour-de-Peilz (Switzerland). Here they prepared a performance to be given at Festival La Cité in Lausanne (Switzerland), in the context of the carte blanche given to three:four records. From this encounter, a lively musical conversation emerged. À La Becque is a distillation of sketches, experimentations, and improvisations recorded in their practice studio. It is also a project that marks the beginning of a friendship, crystallizing a collaboration that began from a distance, several months earlier when Delphine Dora invited Le fruit vert to compose arrangements for two pieces that appear on her record, L'inattingible (2020, three:four records).

Designed and printed on a risograph by Marie-Douce St-Jacques, the twelve-page booklet that accompanies this digital release can be likened to a game in collage form. The musicians, which we chance upon making field recordings — are cut out and dispersed across the landscape, creating a series of intriguing tableaux.
