When We Talk About Love & Happiness by Ayato & Kecap Tuyul
When we talk about love and happiness is the 2nd collaborative album that Ayato and Kecap Tuyul created by file exchange. Guitars (electric or acoustic, melodic or noisy, prepared or not) play an important role in it but are also joined by percussion, vinyls, electronics, etc. The results oscillate bewteen abstract soundscapes and some kind of experimental instrumental post-rock. Despite of their diversity they form a surprising but cohesive sound trip with an overall melancolic mood.
All tracks were mixed and mastered by Ayato during 2011, using raw guitar improvisations provided by Kecap Tuyul and a few sounds by other contributors : Anton Mobin, (track 9) C-lya (track 4), Benoît Hixe aka DMC (tracks 9, 11, 12), Poney Club (track 4), Mystified (track 7)
