1-8 = Wotzenknecht
9-11 = Une veilleuse dans le noir EP
Recorded in Lyon, 2007-2008, released as separate CDr and mini-CDr
Experimental ambient with a concrete edge. I avoided any external references in order to allow the listener to hear what he wanted, but musical influences are sometimes apparent. There is a movie clip for track 6 called This is the business of being nice to people. WARNING! NSFW!
Une veilleuse dans le noir refers to a novel I wrote in 2006. I wanted to provide one hour of soundtrack per chapter (there were seven of them); I gave up after a couple of tracks. Besides spiraling ambient stuff, you can also hear the first of my monologues over Albinioni's Adagio played from an old warped 7 inch single.
Harmed for this recording: Audition, personal recordings & various samples, defective machines, bicycle wheel, guitar, voice recorder, the same piano as last time, hardware lent by the music store Comebackmusic Lyon over the weekend, etc.
CD2 : (12-19) outtakes
Recorded in Lyon, 2007-2008, and Helsinki, 2009-2012
Freeform experiments with spoken words, heavy beats, sampling, looping and improvising with various devices.
Texts in German on "Throm und die Weise" and "Monday Midnight" written and performed by ÖönöÖ; texts in French written and performed by myself.

Harmed for this recording: Audition, Fruity Loops, personal recordings & stolen samples, tingshas, CDJ-800 turntables, EFX-1000, Weird Sound Generator, what else?
