[Eg0_194] Onde Poussière: del_din04

After a web collaboration (album Imperceptible,) Onde Poussière return to free improvisation with their 4th album del_din04, made of sessions recorded on 25th and 26th september 2018. For this occasion, they once more experimented with new set-ups, this time with a focus on lo-fi sound. Doedelzak played laptop amplified with cheap computer speakers and occasionnaly flute, while Kecap Tuyul used his z(xW+yW), a low-tech modular system based on tiny battery-powered guitar amplifiers and contact microphones. Through this new change they continue to explore sonic material and techniques that are likely to cause various accidents and usually unwanted sounds, which are an essential part of the ground on which the band build its improvised soundscapes.

Onde Poussière have used the same set-up in a live performance that took place in Paris on september 26th and can be heard on the duo’s freshly launched bandcamp page. For their next live performance (Tiasi, Paris, 9 janvier 2018), they will try something new again, probably focusing on acoustic instruments with occasional lo-fi amplification.

[Eg0_193] Failure Circle : Frozen Clinamen #2

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 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 #2  was recorded and mixed between april and august 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.

Minus Pilots est le projet du percussionniste Matt Pittori et du bassiste Adam Barringer. Ensemble, ils tissent des textures éparses, des atmosphères émiettées et des drones fracturés avec des courants de légers craquements. Minus Pilots s’est produit à Amsterdam, Berlin, Bruxelles, Dublin, Londres, Milan et Paris.
Leur dernier EP South Late Winter Dream​ / ​My Stars, My Perfect Silence vient de sortir sur eg0cide productions.

M.A.K.T Sono est issu de la rencontre de Magali Albespy et Kecap Tuyul autour d’une appétence commune pour des pratiques d’improvisation laissant la part belle à l’indétermination. Leur collaboration repose sur l’exploration de diverses configurations de jeu avec un appareillage électronique modulaire propice à la génération de situations instables et faisant vaciller la notion de maîtrise instrumentale. M.A.K.T. Sono expérimente des formes à la fois ludiques et méditatives entre le geste et le son, l’oreille et la main, l’activité et l’inactivité, la machine et le vivant.

Leur premier album if you were a clarinet a été publié par eg0cide productions.

[Eg0_188] Half Evidence : Épiphytes

Half Evidence (a french free improvisation duo formed in 2012 by Charles premier & Kecap Tuyul) is currently on hiatus since summer 2016 but their story isn’t finished. Some new material will be published in 2019. Before finalizing these projects, the duo has selected four of their favorite tracks that were given to various compilations (namely Necktar 2017 curated by Ed End on his netlabel Le Colibri Nécrophile and Classwar Karaoke). The resulting album Épiphytes brings four insights on the duo’s works and can be a good way to discover their sound universe and its evolution across the years.

[Eg0_186] Ayato & Kecap Tuyul : Flowers in the Trashbin (digital reissue)

Ayato & Kecap Tuyul met in 2008 and then started to collaborate regularily, mostly by file exchange. Flowers in the Trashbin was their first common work of this kind, a psychedelic sonic trip haunted by whispers and noises from weirdly tuned/prepared guitars, lo-fi electronics, & ghostly voices.  Sometimes melodic, sometimes more abstract, always imaginative, these tracks were recorded and mixed between 2008 and 2009. The resulting album was released in march 2010 by HAK lo-fi record as a limited edition CD-R with a special rectangular cardboard cover that has been out of print since a long time. 8 years after both musicians still like a lot this album and would like it to share it with a broader audience.
Almost 10 years after their first meeting, the two busy guys keep working together besides their several other projects. It took them some time, but their new album, “The Shaman won’t come back” has been completed this summer and will finally be published in the near future.

[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.”
