[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.”

[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_178] M.A.K.T. Sono : If you were a clarinet

M.A.K.T. Sono – Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul – was created in february 2018 from a common taste for improvisation forms that rely more on indetermination and surprise than on the mastering of instrumental skills. They both use electronic tools whose complex settings can generate unexpected sound events and unstable situations. Their first album “If you were a clarinet” consists of 3 selections of slightly edited improvisations recorded in february and march 2018. These improvisation sessions were an opportunity for them to set up their working methodologies and to experiment playful and meditative dialogs between gesture & sound, activity and inactivity, machines and living creatures.

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 questionning the traditional ideas of instrumental mastership and composition.

[Eg0_177] Kecap Tuyul: la soufflette du squelette

Almost 3 years after the release of his previous album Trois Clous, Kecap Tuyul unleashes some more stuff dating from the same area (2015), developing an intensive use of voice as main sound source, filtered, deformed by effects and sometimes overwhelmed by feedback. Guitar was still here (on 2 of the 3 tracks  of the album), providing unstable melodic/droney backgrounds, but often swallowed by spirals of self-dissolving chaos.
Since then Kecap Tuyul has put guitar and voice aside and now mostly uses no-input mixer, in collaboration with various people, and alone under the Failure Circle moniker, focusing on chaos itself, searching for unstable situations, but welcoming the possible emergence of  seemingly self-organized sonic forms.
