[Eg0_218] Nicolas Tourney : Enter the Word

Nicolas Tourney is a french experimental musician and sound designer, also owner of the label Snow in Water Records. With Enter the Word, he offers us a rich and surprising electronic work focused on the use of various vocal samples.

Presentation by the artist :

ENTER THE WORD
(speech music & sampling theory)

An album born from a practice that leaves behind fragments of voices, captures, scans, sonic residues that are often considered as forbidden samples.
Questions about our listening habits, our incomplete lexicons.
The never ending recurrence of one sentence : “you should sing on your stuff, it would sell better!”.
Traces, textures, cuts of a formless territory. The residue faces an esthetic choice that allows its existence : typographic fractals, numbers, radio rustling, syllabary, robotic stances, descriptive fragments.
What makes the distinction between music and speech? What makes speaking differ from raw sound but also from meaning?
Enter the word aims to answer to these two questions through listening, by trying to describe the spotter’s wait behind an airport’s fence.

[Eg0_216] Nina Kardec : NEMA

Nina Kardec has been producing electronic music since 2005. You can listen to her works like you would watch a Kenneth Anger or Stanley’s Kubrick’s movie with their shades of darkness and lights.
NEMA is a concept album about a new pagan mythology in which old gods and goddesses find their way to a source that takes the form of a primal divinity called Kahaa. This musical trip drives the listener in different spaces where nature and humanity confront each other. Harsh and dark sounds collide with the softness of drones or piano, and with various field recordings.
NEMA is a sequel to Nina Kardec’s previous album Collabs Postmortem released early 2019 by Vaatican Records. It might be followed in a few months by an album of remixes  by various artists. Fell free to contact us if you wish to participate to this project.

For each oth this song you’ll find here a zip file containing all the separate tracks (simply click on the name to download it).

– Length and styles are free
It is asked to each artists to use her/his voice in the remix. Thus the participating artists will somehow appear as “apostles” of NEMA, and extend the concept of the original album, which is about the encounter of an old mythology (greek) with a new religion.

– Each track must be sent in wav format to eg0cide productions : tgbts0 (at) gmail.com
PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ME VIA FACEBOOK. YES I HAVE AN ACCOUNT THERE BUT WILL CLOSE IT SOON BECAUSE I HATE THIS SITE.


Personnal note by the artist

This album is the transcription of a dream that I have been doing for over 2 years …
Every night … Every night …
The main character is Kahaa, “THE” primary deity, locked in a human avatar … contemporary,
of that which it has called in the monotheistic religions: “GOD”.
Yes it is a WOMAN. And she is a witness of our society …
And she is angry and so SAD but turned to LIGHT.
She calls ALL FORMS OF LIFE to join HER, to REVOLT, to HEAL and CHANGE THE EARTH,
with her daughter GAÏA and her CHILDREN OF OLYMPUS …
ALL DIVINE, LIVING and HUMAN CREATURES come together to create a LUMINOUS and JUST WORLD.
Here is…
NEMA.
This is Kahaa’s wish
transcribed into music.

 

[Eg0_215] Fred Marty : Après les Cendres

Fred Marty is a french musician born in 1970. After having studied classic doublebass, he focused on free improvisation and experimental music. He developed a personal language inspired by sounds of everyday life, expanding the known range of the doublebass by extended playing techniques and the use of various objects inserted between the strings.

He has also been playing electric bass in various contexts since his beginnings, and in the piece we release today : Après les cendres. This composition recorded in April 2019 is a study of resonances and long sounds created with a prepared electric bass.
Special thanks to Simonetta Parisi for the picture used on the artwork.

[Eg0_214] Podarces & various artists : Frozen Journeys

Under the Podarces pseudonym Benoît Rouits (who also plays oboe in Jukpic ) creates experimental improvised music with keyboards. Last year he made us discover one of his old works :  A Frozen Journey, made in 2009 with virtual synthesizers and inspired by some writings of Philip K. Dick. We enjoyed this album a lot and although it undoubtedly stands on its own we felt its minimalist abstraction could make it a very interesting material to incorporate in new works. We made this suggestion to Benoît and some other collaborators and aquaintances who agreed and accepted to contribute remixes of what is now called “Frozen Journeys”, featuring the original tracks as well as remixes by Humanfobia, Human Koala, Nina Kardec, Anastatsia Vronski, Kecap Tuyul, Nicolas Tourney, Sig Valax, Filmy Ghost, Yann Pillas, Thomas Park, Luciftias, Doedelzak.

[Eg0_213] z(xW+yV) : Trois prises

z(xW+yV) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear. After some tries with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier he developped a modular system on this basis, in order to generate not only feedback, but also feedback of feedback, and feedback of feedback of feedback (…) by chaining amps and microphones in a circular way that blurs more and more the distinction between sound source and sound’s reproduction, between acoustic musical instruments and electronic sound diffusion.

Unlike its first album 3×2(1W+18V) whose 3 pieces where mixes of  2 improvisations, Trois Prises features only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers). Track 1 & 3 contain no edits, track 2 was edited from a longer improvisation.

[Eg0_212] Ayato & Naoki Ishida : Momenta

Ayato & Naoki Ishida have been working together by file exchange since the early 2010s. On Momenta they explore a more melodic and accessible style than on their previous releases on eg0cide( Red_control rec​.​played which focused on field recordings and the split album Tapes Outtakes.based on tapes manipulations). This time they ofter 14 instrumental tracks blending elements of post-rock, dub, and ambient, using many different instruments and field recordings. The compositions are smooth and catchy, but never simplistic – they deserve many listenings that will let you discover their depth and subtelties.
