[Eg0_202] z(xW+yV) : 3×2(1W+18V)

z(xW+yV) is a solo project of Kecap Tuyul started spring 2018 while experimenting different ways to generate low volume feedback with small gear : for instance with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier. It was initially thought as lo-fi version of the Failure Circle project with chaotic feedback system of the no-input mixer in a more portable way, but finally took a quite different direction, with a more tactile & acoustic dimension.

3×2(1W+18V) is the first published album of this project. It was recorded in june 2018 with lo-fi means (cell phone and a cheap digital recorder). Each track is a mix of 2 improvisations played with the most primitive form of z(xW+yV) : one contact microphone, one 1W battery-powered amplifier and two guitar effects (overdrive and equalization). The second album with feature only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers), like the latest samples posted on soundcloud.

[Eg0_201] M.A.K.T. Sono : 11 songs

M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul)’s second album « 11 songs » is made of selected and edited improvisations recorded during the “M.A.K.T. Sono (sans sono)” residency at Le Magasin – Laboratoire de permanence chorégraphique (Mathieu Heyraud) – Saint-Etienne – November 4-9 2018.

Since their beginnings in February 2018  the duo has been working with modular set-ups that are likely to provoke unstable situations (like the soundbox, analog synthesizer and no-input mixer used in their first album “If you were a clarinet”).  This time they played with microphones, voices, analog synthesizers, and small battery-powered amplifiers, forming a modular set-up whose elements can be interconnected in various ways. They also experimented the integration of some song-material in their improvisations.
Magali Albespy made some videos of the residency, they can be viewed from her site

Artists Info

Magali Albespy is a dancer and performer. She likes to question the borders between formats and artistic disciplines. She explores real-time composition with body, video and sound.
Self-taught improviser Kecap Tuyul uses various (and preferably unstable) tools, looking for ways of playing and interacting (with sounds, with other media, with other people) and questioning the traditional ideas of instrumental mastership and composition.

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. Amongst hours of  material created between 2012 and 2016 they have selected a few tracks recorded in april 2013, gathered in a new album : Veines. In these sessions, Charles premier played several of his home-made instruments, while Kecap Tuyul used prepared guitar and voice.

[Eg0_196] Ayato & Kecap Tuyul : The shaman won’t come back

The shaman won’t come back is a new file-exchange based collaborative album of Ayato & Kecap Tuyul, It was recorded and mixed in various places between 2015 and 2018. Ayato played guitar with live looping made with a Revox reel to reel tape player, and Kecap Tuyul later overdubbed these hypnotic tracks with various sounds, building dense and trippy soundscapes.

This work can be considered as the 3rd part of a trilogy started with Waiting for the shaman , published 6 years ago. For the moment, the 2nd part of this trilogy exists only in the head of the listener.

[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.

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.
