TNNDR Brilliant combination of textures, piano notes and deep sounds. I could feel it immediately while I was playing the tracks, that I was into a special project...and when you read the description and you watch the videos, it is really a special thing. It is like traveling to a different dimension through the music, to a past life...it's just confusing and very overwhelming at the same time. Favorite track: Mémoire / REMIX , side B.

about

Memory has grown computer-driven and cloud-based. Magnetic tape, photographic film, and vinyl records have become fascinating archaic artefacts that technological effects are nostalgically trying to imitate. To see how quickly the tools and trades of the analog world have been swept aside shows how little importance we impart to traces. Is it that our sensation of existing in time and continuity has been altered by the quick obsolescence of all things?

A year ago, Dominique Laquerre and Carl Raymond, gave themselves a challenge: to watch dozens of 16 mm films and hundreds of photographs drawn from their own and their friends' family archives, and to listen to hundreds of vinyl records, to draw raw materials for this project. Patiently, they've selected and recorded sounds and atmospheres, and they've juxtaposed countless memory fragments to compose these audio and visual pieces, like a painter would design a glaze-based painting.

This is a special recording made for an art installation at the FIMAV (Festival international de musique actuelle de Victoriaville) from the 15th to the 16th of May 2014.
