"La Gueule Du Loup" explores raw improvisation in a crude, almost cruel manner. On stage the two musicians build musical sets free of pre-existing structures or recorded sounds. The electronic matrix arises from the modules and is immediately propelled into the atmosphere.
The two unpatched modular sythesizers first suggest a virgin circuit. Patches are built during the performance.
Cosmetic memory plays a secondary role here, catapulted styles shoving the idea of y unified single-style. This is another memory, where the patch is a substitution to ensure a sound coherence of elements, tones, micro-tones, rhythms, order and chaos.
Edition of 300 copies.
