[Eg0_214] Podarces & various artists : Frozen Journeys

Under the Podarces pseudonym Benoît Rouits (who also plays oboe in Jukpic ) creates experimental improvised music with keyboards. Last year he made us discover one of his old works :  A Frozen Journey, made in 2009 with virtual synthesizers and inspired by some writings of Philip K. Dick. We enjoyed this album a lot and although it undoubtedly stands on its own we felt its minimalist abstraction could make it a very interesting material to incorporate in new works. We made this suggestion to Benoît and some other collaborators and aquaintances who agreed and accepted to contribute remixes of what is now called “Frozen Journeys”, featuring the original tracks as well as remixes by Humanfobia, Human Koala, Nina Kardec, Anastatsia Vronski, Kecap Tuyul, Nicolas Tourney, Sig Valax, Filmy Ghost, Yann Pillas, Thomas Park, Luciftias, Doedelzak.

[Eg0_213] z(xW+yV) : Trois prises

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. After some tries with one contact microphone and one 1W battery-powered amplifier he developped a modular system on this basis, in order to generate not only feedback, but also feedback of feedback, and feedback of feedback of feedback (…) by chaining amps and microphones in a circular way that blurs more and more the distinction between sound source and sound’s reproduction, between acoustic musical instruments and electronic sound diffusion.

Unlike its first album 3×2(1W+18V) whose 3 pieces where mixes of  2 improvisations, Trois Prises features only raw improvisations played on more complex versions of the set-up (with 3 or 4 amplifiers). Track 1 & 3 contain no edits, track 2 was edited from a longer improvisation.

[Eg0_209] Failure Circle : Melting Clinamen

Melting Clinamen was born from a small deviation from the methodology used by Failure Circle in this serie of compositions Frozen Clinamen that normally uses only sounds recorded while no human intervention is applied to the used set-up ( no-input mixer most of the time). The creation of the first track of this album followed the same rules – except that it used a recording that features some little changes created manually (this sound can be heard between 3min11 et 12m06). This is also the first release in which Failure Circle doesn’t use a no-input mixer but a semi-modular analog synthesizer, the Neutron by Behringer, with no effects except its built-in ones. Another notable difference with the past volumes lies into the way the material has been edited & mixed. The other track of the album (Frozen Clinamen #2M) follows more strictly the Frozen Clinamen methodology, but all sounds were also created with synthesizer. Thus, Melting Clinamen is and isn’t part of the Frozen Clinamen serie.

Methodology of the Frozen Clinamen serie
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_205] M.A.K.T. Sono : ‘UNK

Since their beginnings in February 2018, M.A.K.T. Sono (Magali Albespy and Kecap Tuyul) have been experimenting with different set-ups and ways of playing. Amongst them, they like to play both on the same instruments / set-ups in the same time. It’s what they did on ‘UNK.0, an improvisation played on a no-input mixer. The other tracks of this EP are electronic compositions by Kecap Tuyul and Doedelzak using this improvisation as only sound material.

[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.
