[Eg0_178] M.A.K.T. Sono : If you were a clarinet

M.A.K.T. Sono – Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul – was created in february 2018 from a common taste for improvisation forms that rely more on indetermination and surprise than on the mastering of instrumental skills. They both use electronic tools whose complex settings can generate unexpected sound events and unstable situations. Their first album “If you were a clarinet” consists of 3 selections of slightly edited improvisations recorded in february and march 2018. These improvisation sessions were an opportunity for them to set up their working methodologies and to experiment playful and meditative dialogs between gesture & sound, activity and inactivity, machines and living creatures.

Magali Albespy is a dancer and performer. She likes to question the borders between formats and artistic disciplines. She explores real-time composition with body, video and sound.
Self-taught improviser Kecap Tuyul uses various (and preferably unstable) tools, looking for ways of playing and interacting (with sounds, with other media, with other people) and questionning the traditional ideas of instrumental mastership and composition.

[Eg0_177] Kecap Tuyul: la soufflette du squelette

Almost 3 years after the release of his previous album Trois Clous, Kecap Tuyul unleashes some more stuff dating from the same area (2015), developing an intensive use of voice as main sound source, filtered, deformed by effects and sometimes overwhelmed by feedback. Guitar was still here (on 2 of the 3 tracks  of the album), providing unstable melodic/droney backgrounds, but often swallowed by spirals of self-dissolving chaos.
Since then Kecap Tuyul has put guitar and voice aside and now mostly uses no-input mixer, in collaboration with various people, and alone under the Failure Circle moniker, focusing on chaos itself, searching for unstable situations, but welcoming the possible emergence of  seemingly self-organized sonic forms.

[Eg0_176] Natalia Kamia, Stewart Miller, and other invisible entities : We jammed on our little green aircraft

We welcome back Natalia Kamia on eg0cide, a few years after her collaborative work Cluster with Ayato. This time she teamed up with Stewart Miller from USA  Both of them have studied music in academic settings, but in order to expand the expressive potential of their crafts, they have turned to utilizing extended techniques for their main instruments – for Natalia the piano, for Stewart guitars – and using objects/processes that were probably never intended to be musical.   All of the tracks from their album “We jammed on our little green aircraft” were compiled from recordings that they had passed back and forth through the internet.

The result of this collaboration is a fresh & intriguing work that deliberately ignores the traditional hierarchies between sounds and focuses on attending to their particularities, without trying to polish them too much. Stewart and Natalia are not afraid of collisions. Their music passes by the non-contradiction principle and the narrow conceptions of music as “harmony”; their sounds dance, float, slip, crash and start running again without following a precisely perceivable logic: you just have to accept them as they come & go. They form a dizzy, unstable world that is in the same time very material and completely unreal, sometimes joyously agitated, sometimes more restrained and plaintive. These tunes often keep some kind of twisted groove, as in some forms of free jazz.
I won’t pretend to know who or what the “other invisible entities” credited as co-creators of the album might be, but having listened to it several times I’ve realized that even goldfishes might learn to sing, and that plants need to pee sometimes. Maybe we just have to experiment with different ways of feeding pianos and guitars ? “Meow!” answered the swinging spoons…

[Eg0_175] Doedelzak : Carillon

Much more minimalist than Wandering in Dust that we published in 2015, Carillon, the new album of Doedelzak is made of almost nothing. It will discretly merge with your surroundings and the hidden things of your daily life. Maybe you will not notice it at all, which is fine too.

[Eg0_174 / SDT01] Solo – Duo – Trio #01 : Failure Circle / Godjira / Ugut (co-release Apocope / Eg0cide)

Eg0cide Productions teams up with another french label, Apocope, to organize live concerts folowing a simple format: three parts, one solo, one duo, one trio. Artists are invited to present new projects, and to try to new encounters (for one live set or more). Each concert is recorded, and then made available for free download. This project aims to present a panorama ofthe  vivid & diverse french the experimental scene at a given time. All these recordings will be co-released by eg0cide and Apocope’s digital section.

Egocide Production s’associe au label Apocope (fondé par Paul-André Landes et Xavier Mussat) pour développer un projet initié par Xavier Mussat : organiser des soirées concerts selon un format simple : trois parties, un solo, un duo, un trio. Les artistes sont invités à tester des projets inédits, à tenter des rencontres le temps d’un live (et plus si affinité). Chaque concert est enregistré en prise de son directe et nous vous en offrons un accès gratuit.  Ce projet a pour ambition de dessiner un panorama de la scène expérimentale improvisée à un instant T, sa vivacité et sa grande diversité. Tous ces enregistrements seront co-publiés par eg0cide et la section numérique d’Apocope, qui par ailleurs édite livres et cds.

The first event of this serie took place at La Pointe Lafayette on february 17 of 2018.
It featured :

  • Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul aka eg0cide S.A.) : this was his first solo show, using a no-input mixer and effects, creating unstable sound situations that can turn to silence, ears-plitting feedback, irregular beats, deep drones…
  • Godjira : Frederick Galiay (bass) & Benjamin Pagier (bass) . Two basses plugged in the same monolithic totem-amplifier.
  • Ugut : Augustin Bette (drums), Xavier Mussat (guitar), Basile Naudet (saxophone) : this was their first show, mixing radical free improv with experimental noise-rock infused guitar

Recorded by JJGfree & Benjamin Pagier
Mixed and mastered by Benjamin Pagier
Artwork by Xavier Mussat
Special Thanks to Michèle / Doxa Esta
The next event of this serie should take place in may 2018, it will be announced here (live events section) and on our facebook page and so on.
