Denis Morin Working K EP Vinyle on Stochastic Releases

 

 PRE-ORDER VINYL

This work tries to show that a net collaboration, aiming at musical perfection, is in itself a new way of living art. This reflection, through an exchange of remixes in remix, is coupled with a search for our need for degradation, sometimes up to excess (remixes have been through more or less of this trying different vst). But also as a work on the density, first of insect sounds recorded during personal travel and on the second hand of kicks, vital centers of techno music.

Beyond the musical universe requiring no justification, it also continues the (“autobiographical”) exploration of an imaginary elsewhere in Japan or China… With the practice of “Guzheng” on the Iwato range made possible by the technology of sampling.

The balafons, sampled instruments of predilection, are invited again in a second version mounted techno acid and abstract. The atmosphere is dark and bitcrush, for this side A which starts with the dense and obstinate sound of the main mix. She mutes on the B side in a lo-fi burn, lynchian universe, of the remix “dancefloor ready” of the violent techno of Krikor. This EP concludes on an aerial counter-foot, a return to a spacious clarity with this last track of Stewart Brown, dub deep and EP centerpiece, recomposed from the undistorted elements of the original mix, like a relaxed opening to the future.

Here is also what’s Stochastic maybe tell better about it and me :

Denis Morin is from Grenoble, a french provincial city located at the meeting point of three valleys of the Alps. This city is both high-tech and nature-oriented, due to its quite new history and location, respectively.
This EP contains 4 tracks, who are different versions of a track named Working K, eponymous to the EP.
There is the main mix by Denis Morin, which contains sampled « natural » sounds such as insects, guzheng and one of the heaviest kick in the whole spectrum of kicks that you can have access to nowadays. Yes that is a strong statement. So yes this main mix is a good reflection, I think, of this hybrid city of Grenoble, if you visit you will get it, maybe. It is dark, bitcrushed, obstinated. It is long and heavy, it is deep, it is ambient, it is not ambient.
And then there is a remix of this main mix by Denis Morin: abstract, progressive, like a ghost version of the main mix. Like this famous Burning Spear record « Marcus Garvey » and the dub version of it « Garvey’s Ghost », you just need both.
On the B side, you have an edit by Krikor, also known as Crack Boy, the gear master with the poisonous sounds, with the uncomfortable lines, who produced a lo-fi dancefloor ready track. But this is yet a strange dancefloor, a damp suffocating dancefloor, you don’t need to move to be sweaty and you don’t need to fear to be scared. You don’t need to move to be dancing as well of course.
And then there is the light, the cool breeze, the openness, which is the track by Stewart Brown from 12th Isle collective. This track is even deeper than the main mix itself, due partly to a particularly resolved and rich hi-hat sound. As I was taught at school, any conclusion should open to further ideas, well this is exactly what it does. Let’s go swimming or hiking or stay home as you wish.

Wolfswagen – Authentikós Ep on DHMR label

Wolfwagen is a reflection on the authenticity of so-called ethnic music in the era of internet and samplers so perfect that we can no longer distinguish them from the real instruments they imitate.
Especially since the ease of execution (in this case the balafon played on the push tool) make any work of musical technique properly speaking spoiled as soon as a source of electricity and a computer with tools are available.
Leaving room for the composition and the pleasure of the imaginary, the tracks are blurred in favor of the approach and the result in which the factor of chance and randomness are not negligible as underlines here the use of fm synthesizer and random midi tool.
Hoping that the journey would still be successful, no label more than DHMR could be the home of such an imaginary throw of pleasure launched in spite of nations and continents!

 

Musical Autobiography – Ellipsis comes from cones and produces spiral narratives

 

The aesthetic part and pathos inherent to the biographical aspect are present in the music below, realized during a workshop on the autobiography animated by Alessandro Bosetti. Follow the link for the description of the laboratory master animating this workshop about the course of this traineeship, which was a real “brain shaker” for me!

 

Entitled “Les nom du père” meaning “The names of the father” in reference to the Lacan conference of the same name, this creation in the autobiographical narrative genre, explores the laughter and tears through the aesthetic techno language which informs the listener of the intensities and notably through the measured and measured use of kicks that echo the speech, exposing a momentary, and certainly fictional point of view, if not false (after verification). a glance at a moment of the ellipse on one of its adverse parts forming the cone :

 

 

A word that pleased about, from of a poet and producer at mighty France Culture radio :

Later, it was followed by a musical live performance, performed at  “Le Vog” Fontaine’s art center, as well as a new piece borrowing both the lyrics and the title of the Lacan conference in question, this time spelled “les non-dupent èrent” which could be traduced by “the non-fooled wander”. Because precisely as you can see spelling fluctuating and  while fluctuating slips along the ellipse of the cone and spirals the meaning (and it’s quite happy). A piece of spoken house in preparation will follow this work, as well as musical tracks made of recorded memories.

 

Hard House track for the mezzanine 112 compilation on the Posthumous records label

 

Tu rêve means you dream and repeat this word until change is meaning on a solid techno track. Brut without concession this title echoes the experience of rave or free party, universe that Hibou the author of this compilation and boss of the bar the mezzanine 112 known has its beginnings. It also echoes the renewed invitations of this exceptional boss in this bar with a special atmosphere.

Medusa’s Journey into sound, un ep et une histoire fantaisiste de Lily Cup et Youpidou

 

 

 

Le voyage de Medusa à travers le son  est un album-histoire né du coeur de Lily Cup et Youpidou.
Médusa est une jeune ange déchue, tombée dans notre cosmos par mégarde.
Ici, elle veut surfé sur la vie jusqu’à ce qu’elle devienne sombre et sage comme Sun-Ra. Elle réalise son voyage astral préféré en écoutant des sons venus de sa nouvelle terre. Avec ses oreilles d’ange, elle se voyagera jusqu’à Saturne histoire de voir si Sun-Ra est toujours vivant là-bas. Elle apprendra à créer son propre destin et tentera les dieux avec sa nouvelle réalité.
Mais chaotique est ce cosmos et désordonné sont les interconnexion entre les réalités …

Youpidou remix “Silver” an Helium Robot’s track released on This Is Music label

My first remix for pro artists and a great label!
While resuming my sounds activities purely for leisure, the group Helium Robots of which I am fan proposes to remix the third single of their album Voltopia which appears on the London based label This is Music:

Here it is (not perfect but full of ideas):

 

I use it to experiment a maximum since the art of the remix from audio files is quite new to me, I then compose under the software Acid sony studio 7 and offers another version softer, still imperfect, but Which keeps its charm and deserves a listening if you got time to dream :
