[Eg0_184] Failure Circle : Frozen Clinamen #1

Frozen Clinamen is a new serie of works started by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) in autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions. Frozen Clinamen #1 was recorded and mixed between november 2017 & june 2018.

Methodology
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and 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.

[Eg0_179] Failure Circle : A mistake within a mistake

While Failure Circle‘s 1st album 0x0.0 was full of overdubs, the 2nd one “A mistake within a mistake” consist of 3 raw improvisations recorded in Kecap Tuyul’s home studio during winter 2017-2018. It shows another side of this no-input-mixer project: more focused, less frantic, and even minimalist and droney sometimes.

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

Since february 2018, Eg0cide Productions partners 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. All these recordings will be co-released by eg0cide and Apocope’s digital section. The objective of this project is to give an insight into the deep, vivid and diverse French experimental music scene.

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

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.

(Frederik Galiay : basse + Benjamin Pagier : basse).
– Deux basses électriques dans le même ampli-totem-monolythique.
Une poésie “ogrèsque” fouillant dans les retranchements reptiliens du monstre radioactif en marche.
Creusant dans la matière brute et massive jusqu’à de la dentelle aiguisée, les deux musiciens proposent ici une musique où la douceur et la fureur sont au même plan, dans les méandres et les gouffres-affres qui, certainement virent naître le dernier représentant d’une espèce de dinosaures théropodes ;
Godjira.

[Eg0_167] Failure Circle : 0x0.0

No memories, no projects, no ideas, no feelings, no form, no content. Just nothingness plugged to itself, a circle that never closes…
