[Eg0_236] Kecap Tuyul : Somnambulistic Utopia

Somnambulistic Utopia, the new solo album of Kecap Tuyul is made of three one-hour long improvisations mixed together. Each new one was recorded without listening simultaneously to the previous one. The only predetermined choice in each of these improvisations was to include at least 15 minutes of silence in it, placed at different moments of each session. The technical set-up of these 3 sessions was the same : analog synthesizer, mixing board feedback and voice.

Two of these improvisations (9 and 20 March 2020) have been recorded for the uni.Sol_ project curated by Slavek Kwi aka Artificial Memory Trace. The 3rd one has been recorded especially for this piece on 13 April 2020.

[Eg0_235] Anastasia Vronski : The Ceremony

Anastasia Vronski is a versatile experimental musician from Perm, Russia. Since years she has been creating an impressive and quite diverse body of work. Her new album The Ceremony has a definitely ritual vibe as the title suggests but with an original  mixture of mysterious roaring, droney and pulsating noises, and more identifiable  sounds like percussion & voices.

[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.

We use our instruments, our voice, and also everyday objects. Accidents and mistakes are welcome. Images and sounds are sometimes in harmony, sometimes not. Anything can happen…”

[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.
