Album info

In 2008 Philippe Baudouin (aka Monsieur Tympan – phonographer)
and Alexandre Manzanares (photographer) have produced a sound and
photographic documentary about rural world, available on CD, called
“Sous les pieds, la terre” (which means “Under the feet, the land”). To
realize this project, they have collected sounds and pictures of people
and landscapes they’ve met on the road: old country people, kids in
garden, sounds of agricultural tools, beauty of mountains… In September
2008, Philippe decided to put online 30 samples of the sounds he
recorded and to collaborate with Headphonica to release on their
netlabel. With this sound samples, everyone was invented to make his
own remix! The idea was to propose people to appropriate these
field-recordings and to make a subjective remix. Even if these
different sounds come from a very little part of the world (Vaucluse,
France), the 80 remixes we’ve received show us the universality of
these ones. Here is the result sent by people from all over the world!
Enjoy yourself!

Panda Paranoico along with Lezet will be going on my play-list for this upcoming week. One wonders why the US scene doesn't produce such variable and interesting noise/industrial/ambient/classical/jazz crossover... I think it's due to the lack of homogeneity in a non-federation, additionally protected by multiple languages and the different musical constructions that occur as a result.

Thanks! Have you heard the radio shows he did for Ou?edire? They are archived here -- and lots of fun!

What a marvelous idea! Monsieur Tympan is a brilliant DJ and phonographer, so it only goes to figure he would be involved in such a fascinating project.
