[Eg0_185] Aloyse : Sounds of the Selves EP

We welcome the first release of french artist (writer and musician) Aloyse. His refined electronic music evolves between ambiguous shifts and clear lines, using fuzzy textures, subdued melodies and sparse, fragmented beats. This diversity of approaches is also reflected in the  reinterpretations by 8 other artists who remixed the 4 original tracks :
Canse
Demoiselle Döner
Doedelzak
Eg0n
Kecap Tuyul
Luxalove
No3sis
Stoé Orkéo

Presentation of the project by Aloyse : ” Sound of the selves is a sound project between field recording and the art of sampling designed to be listened to during a stage performance. Shown in various places in Paris the performance “Parachute”, presented by the theatre company Machine, consists in a mobile dome under which one comedian faces one spectator. A couple of minutes to save the world from its delusions, a moment of intense intimacy before the world and its chaotic noise repeat themselves.
Sound of the selves is also an invitation to think and recreate the bound between the voices of the world and the voice of the machine: 8 musicians with variegated backgrounds offered an edit of one of the tracks in order to push one step ahead the endless communication between the creative forms of life.”

[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_169] Onde Poussière: Vague seconde

Vague Seconde, the second album of Onde Poussière, documents the group’s evolution since their beginnings and their first album Silent Rain. Doedelzak now plays interconnected analog synthesiszers, and Kecap Tuyul has dropped the guitar and uses a “no-input mixer” with effects. Their improvisations are based on the creation of unstable situations in which some accidental sounds might happen at any time…

[Eg0_160] Geosmin with friends : Adrift In the Backland

Geosmin is an ambient/drone duo composed of Jules/Valentin (guitar etc) and Manuel Devier aka 3EHNT (bass), who are also members of the french XtetX Collective. Their half improvised music is mostly harmonious and dreamy. On Adrift in the Backland they are joined by two other members of the XtetX Collective : Doedelzak (synth) and Kecap Tuyul (prepared guitar etc), who regularily play in duo as Onde Poussière.
The 3 tracks of the album were recorded on a rainy afternoon of july 2015 in Kecap Tuyul’s home studio. They definitely have the Geosmin’s typical bittersweet mood and foggy sound, although the presence of the 2 guests add some more contrasted and experimental elements.

[Eg0_154] Onde Poussière : Silent Rain

Doedelzak and Kecap Tuyul met in spring 2015 thanks to improvisation sessions of the XtetX Collective. They then decide to play as a duo that wants to develop a more focused sound :  Onde Poussière . Their music relies on a careful mutual listening and a quite restrained palette. It gives a particular attention to contrasts, silences, subtle shifts – but can also be quite agitated and even noisy sometimes. Their first album Silent Rain consists of 2 unedited improvisation recorded on october 2015.

Reviews

David Nemeth / Acts of Silence (january 2, 2016)

“(…) Tuyul has an extensive discography of working with other musicians and is known for his playing on prepared guitar, though thinking of him solely as a guitarist would be preposterous. His journeys in sound, whether solo or others, are always quite good. After finally listening to Doedelzak’s Wandering in Dust, it was no suprise that Doedelzak and Tuyul worked well together on Silent Rain.

The first track, “Skipped Slices”, begins quietly, directing us down an ambient path. But as Doedelzak calls out to Tuyul, Tuyul responds with an answer that in itself is a call to Doedelzak, and he repeats this call wrapped in an answer. The duo quickly turn our ambient journey into the subtle and not-so-subtle noises of daily life. There are interferences, jolts, and even some pleasantness. “Silent Rain”, the second track, begins even more quietly than the first, with Doedelzak on the synth. But at this point, the listener should not be fooled by this lull, as Tuyul and his guitar scrape into the soudscape like a wounded man walking down a dark alley. Somwhere around the 4 minute mark things begin to get even more weird which is never a bad thing. “Silent Rain” comes crashing down half-way through only to regroup itself for future strangeness. Doedelzak and Tuyul’s musical wanderings may be filled with indirectness, even randonmenss, but it is their response to the other’s chaos that brings the music into one sound and makes Onde Poussière’s Silent Rain worth your time.”

Continuo’s documents (january 6, 2016)

“Silent Rain is the first full-length release by Onde Poussière, the duo of Doedelzak (synthesizer) and Kecap Tuyul (guitar), two young Parisian improvisers, both members of the XtetX collective emerging in 2015 to gather improvisers of various origins and organize live meetings and performances in Paris venues.

An exploration of abstract textures for guitar & synth, Silent Rain is comprised of two massive 25-28mns tracks, though not the impenetrable monoliths one might expect from improvising musicians, the music here being carefully sequenced into distinct, successive phases and pauses. Tuyul plays prepared, tabletop guitar à la Keith Rowe while pianist and keyboard player Doedelzak apparently plays a computer emulated, analog synth named Synth1 – developed by Ichiro Toda, see YouTube demo–, as he used on his own solo release Wandering in Dust, also in 2015.

Silent Rain’s first track is build on multiple convolutions, conflagrations and juxtapositions of the instruments – at times I was reminded Thomas Lehn’s own EMS Synthi A improvisations. The second track evolves in more sinuous textures and glacial sounds, both seductive and unsettling to the ear. This release’s FLAC version is particularly gratifying in this respect, what with the deep, spacious sounds of the analog synthesizer and the cavernous resonances of the prepared guitar. Excellent debut release by a promising French duo. ”
