Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Low Impedance
Between electronica and concrete music, glitch and improvisation, flows the inspiration of ‘Le Pavillon Temoin’, a delicate sound environment by Mathias Delplanque, a musician-producer from Burkina Faso, who used to go by the monikers of Bidlo and Lena. There are many levels this work can be listened on, suspended in light melodies, controlled dissonances, classical reminiscences and contemporary destructurations, thanks also to the worthy collaborations that follow a very sensitive inspiration along the articulations of the tracks, although there’s a constant but never boring background theme. It’s an interesting and sophisticated project, where the electro-acoustic characters become lighter and purer thanks to the diverse (partly pop, even) suggestions.
