Bibio - À Tout À L’heure

One of the beauties of semantics is the great depth that can be explored within a word or phrase that is otherwise lost in common conversation and day-to-day vocabulary. The French expression, “À Tout À L’heure” is a phrase that holds a dual meaning — each an opposite of the other. The phrase can refer to both a moment in the recent past as well as a sliver of time in the near future — a moment that is yet to occur. The phrase represents a holistic meaning that captures all facets of time.

Initially announced via a handwritten note on his Facebook, UK artist Stephen Wilkinson — otherwise known by the moniker “Bibio” — has appropriately dubbed his latest single, “À Tout À L’heure.” Less contrived and more spontaneous than anything, Wilkinson’s arrangement was harnessed during a sunny day outside in his garden. Bibio combines an amalgam sounds and instruments including his 12-string guitar, MPC sampler, a cassette recorder, and microphone with a nearby watering can and the sound of shears swiping across the blades of grass. Not only appropriately titled, but also appropriately and eloquently arranged, “À Tout À L’heure” offers a promising audio glimpse into Bibio’s upcoming seventh full-length album, Silver Wilkinson.
