“Noise” (Used 758 times)

Just like the too-strong coffee that brings us to work each morning, this cassette album has the dark and bitter taste of a hopeless routine.
With this collection of vague loops whose high unstable notes bring back to the surface daily uncertainties, the Pleurs Magnétiques (“magnetic cries”) of this beverage has the listener drift far away from restorative sleep.
Dented, used, rickety, these rehashed snippets of existence crash into sunless beaches of sound.
In the background, the continuous breath that animates them sometimes gives a glimpse of its author’s, Bernard Grancher.
After pulling out of the forgotten pile the magnetic tapes of a hundred old pieces from the nineties with his stooge, Emmanuel Lautreamont, the Rouen-born tried his hand here at an original exercise in style.
Using the 4 track as an actual instrument, he plays with various effects to denature this initial material.
Between sonorous poetry and industrial music, the result shows an unpublished side of his work, all the while staying close to his habitual obsessions. The accompanying illustration, signed Nicolas Nadé, seems to be just as loyal to this pessimistic vision of our era.
Whether you are familiar with his surrealist pop synth released on Ego Twister and Gonzaï or simply intrigued by obscure atmospheres, you are sure to give in to this little black coffee…

Introducing Eg0cide Productions (netlabel for experimental music) and the live recordings serie Solo Duo Trio co-organized with Apocope
Eg0cide Productions is a french netlabel specialized in experimental music founded in 2007 by Kecap Tuyul (aka The Ghost Between The Strings aka Failure Circle). Most of our releases are available for free downloads and published under Creative Commons Licenses. We have released more than 180 albums in various styles of music, including ambient, drone, experimental rock, free improvisation, noise, soundscapes and sound collages. Our full back catalog is available from eg0cide.com. For the past few years, the focus has naturally shifted towards free improvisation, noise and more conceptual works, considered not so much as well defined styles but rather as ways to generate idiosyncratic sounds and forms. Above all, we like to be surprised by inspired and unorthodox creations.
This evolution is also related to the organisation of live events in Paris and around (since 2015 & the creation of the XtetX collective with a few other experimental musicians), and by the wish to publish live recordings. Since february 2018, eg0cide has partnered with another French label, Apocope, for a special serie of live events called Solo Duo Trio. All these concerts are recorded and later co-published as free download releases. The objective of this project is to give an insight into the deep, vivid and diverse French experimental music scene.
Since the second edition, the two labels cooperate with Les Instants Chavirés (Montreuil), one of the most durable and notable venues dedicated to experimental and improvised music around Paris. Two volumes have been published so far and can be found here or on eg0cide's site for more formats (flac and wav are available).
The third event of this serie will take place again atLes Instants Chavirés, on 5 october 2018. It will be centered about guitar players and feature Farida Amadou (from Liège, Belgium), Olivier Benoît & Julien Desprez (trio) ; Simon Henocq & Jean-Sébastien Mariage (duo) ; Clara De Asis (solo). We plan to publish the recordings around the end of 2018. With this kind of project we'd like to share recordings of french experimental musicians to a broader audience.

Zeffon (Renton, Washington - USA) try to make things that are a little more... surreal.
This giant album (and its crazy title) are dedicated to the dead and the odd rumors surrounding death. In a few words, the songs themselves are meant to invoke a sense of malaise and uneasiness.
This album is divided into two parts :
1 - Urban-Habitual : tracks 01 to 22
2 - Tribal-Temporary : tracks 23 to 61.
