Klaten by Klaten

Album Description

Released:April 22nd, 2016
Length:00:49:17

For its 30th release, Da ! Heard It Records gives a touching testimony: that of Klaten’s computer’s last days. Inspired by the epileptic glitches of a video card used up to its circuit, this disc’s seven pieces form a meticulous assembly of violent unknown flying objects from which otherworldly melodies emerge.

“Tergiversure”, “Déglutogène”, “Exoplaste”: each track seems to be an attempt at a graft to sustain the life of a microprocessor on its last legs for a just a few moments more. Klaten, a professional 3D infographist, has indeed retained from his practice an extreme attention to detail and a taste for peculiar universes, as evidenced by the disc’s sleeve, signed Elise Kobisch-Miana, a panorama of crystals with shattered perspectives reminiscent of the album’s numerous landforms.

Leading the way with Stipulite, Klaten takes the listener into the winding tunnels of a labyrinthian cave where bouncing rhythms sometimes trigger the tinting of dim mineral glows. Digging deeper into the matter, he pursues his course head hung low, through the sparkling reflections of Exoplaste and the sharp breakbeats of Tergiversure. Once at the heart of an aural boiling magma from which he draws new metallic materials (Phoryaphile, Gramafion), he completes his journey through the breath of Stratiformis in order to cool down the overheating vents of his machine positively controlled at all the VST. Alas, it is already too late…

Ultimate souvenir from this voyage, the Parisian C_C concludes with his own vision of the trip: a remix with massive rhythms and the sound of his analog machines humming in the background. A tribute to the complex landscapes of Autechre and the experiments of the label Schematic, this disc, with its rich and startling imaginary, remains nameless. Like a challenge, the sonorities it deploys give all the hints necessary for the listener to find it a name.
