[Eg0_232] Seuil Optique : Les Habitants, Besides

Seuil Optique, duo of Sig Valax and Nicolas Tourney, offers a unique experience of listening to music in the dark. Immersing the stage and the public in constant darkness, Seuil Optique creates soundscapes where electronic transmissions, acousmatic landscapes and refined drones intersect. By jostling the boundaries between listening, blind manipulation of machines and immersive experience offered to the audience, the two musicians explore new sound tracks, in permanent dialogue with hybrid musicalities and the practice of singular instruments: persephone, field recording, electro-acoustic devices, matrices and samples.
On stage, they use deliberately “open” improvisation strategies and defeat the boundaries between manipulating machines in the dark, harmonics tinged with noise-producing materials and the “eyes closed” hearing experience offered to the public.

“Les Habitants, Besides” is a sequel of the duo’s third album Les Habitants, published a few weeks ago. It focuses on the practice of electronic improvisation. Recorded in three days and three nights, in Paris, in total darkness, Les Habitants aims to be a place of recognition of gesture as a creative act. No preparation beforehand, no benchmark, no intro or climax, only the interaction between two ways of producing spectral imprints. In this sound dialogue, electronics are the vector of total sincerity: the inhabitants target the listener, bringing them to live the experience of the moment that guides the “non-idiomatic” music of Seuil Optique, in which each sound, each transmitted waveform is dedicated to the inhabitants of the present.

[Eg0_230] Failure Circle : Frozen Clinamen #3

Frozen Clinamen is serie of works by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) started on autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up (and sometimes other modular set-ups) and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions : all the sounds included in these works are recordings of moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #3  was recorded and mixed between September 2017 and March 2018. Sound material on track 1 was generated by only no-input mixer on track 1, and only semi-modular analog synthesizer on track 2.

Methodology
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking, then recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.

It consists of playing in real time two tapes with two different multitrack recorders, which gives 4 stereo sounds side A in normal play and side B in reverse added to others sounds played depending on which way the wind is blowing with the others devices. Some Loops have been created during the mixing process. Cassettes are from private collection, gifts, prepared and found tapes, archives…

Voices of NEMA is a compilation of remixes of 4 tracks from the album NEMA by Nina Kardec, selected by the composer.

Light Dedication :
Pikadon is dedicated to those who participated in Necktar 2017 and have died since : A few of your dreams is shining in our eyes. A bit of your spirits are vibrating in this music.

Burst Dedication :
Pikadon is dedicated to all the peoples who are trying to free themselves from the madness of their leaders. Who are trying to get rid of capitalism to save the planet, humanity and all living creatures.

Thanks :
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to each participant for the meeting of our sound universes.
Thanks to the netlabels without whom this project would have been a little too much ambitious for my frail shoulders.
Thanks to Sono Sion for the discovery of Pikadon in his film “Rabu & Pîsu”.
