[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…

Reviews

Review by C. Reider:
A group that can be counted on for thoughtful, well-constructed, abstract guitar music. This one is fairly intense and dark, sounds like the mother ship landing outside a machine shop.

[Eg0_165] Sysma : Revenances

Sysma was founded around the end of 2015 by 3 improvisers of the XtetX Collective (Torbill, Kecap Tuyul, X_pharmaka) and sice then has regularily included other members of the XtetX (Siu, Charles premier). In this project they create ritualistic atmospheres with a marked focus on voices, but without stylistic limits nor planned structures. Their first album Revenances is an adventurous  sonic odissey haunted by screaming guitars, possessed voices, swirling electronic noises, massive drones. Sometimes hypnotically repetitive, sometimes chaotic and disorienting, this is a quite intense and challenging work that deserves several listenings to be fully appreciated.

[Eg0_163] psph.S : {enter / reenter / out}

psph.S is the duo of Missing O and Kecap Tuyul , 2 founding members of the XtetX Collective. They regularily play together since the end of 2014, mostly in the trio psoph.OS and the XtetX Ensemble. In december 2015 they decided to create a new project in which they wont use their usual tools (computer for Missing O, prepared guitar for Kecap Tuyul). Instead, they both have chosen to play with some junk material : everyday objects, cheap microphones, effects, and usually unwanted sounds : buzz, hum, crackles, feedback.
They like raw sounds (mouth noises, metal banging) but also often use their effects with extrem settings – to discover what can happen (bursts of screeching feedback, digital crackles, and even silence…) and to test their improvising abilities in front of chaos and randomness.

Their first album {enter / reenter / out} was improvised and recorded in march 2016. It will take you in weird disused places where machines seem to live their own lives…

Review by C. Reider

Having all the ingredients of your standard harsh noise performance, (feedback, fast-tweaking of effect pedals, twitchy abuse of contact mics…) but adding up to something a bit more reflective than reflexive.

[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_155] Half Evidence & Now Cut : Des ailes dans le plomb

Half Evidence ( Kecap Tuyul and Charles premier) and Now Cut (Stéphanie Briand and Philippe Desclais) are two french bands with many common points : all their members are self-taught (and not really interested in learning how to play music “normally”), they like unexpected sounds and strange soundscapes, they use modified and/or home made instruments, they love to play with other improvisers / experimental bands.  So it’s no surprise that they decided to try to play together shortly after they discovered each other’s music. Des ailes dans le plomb was improvised and recorded during their first meeting in november 2014.
