More Info

"Surely one of the most anticipated acousmatic album this year! It took seven years to finally deliver the recent works of one undisputed masters of electroacoustic music, Robert Normandeau.

The afficionado will be delighted as much as the neophyte since Normandeau revisits certain concepts (Palimpseste, Murmures) while continuing to develop his ultra-rigourous compositional research.

Normandeau still dares to take risks such as in Murmures or Jeu de langues in which the extremely limited material used exacerbates the aesthetic genuineness of the compositions. This is also the case in the epic and transcendental Anadliad where a basic rhythm supports a composition based on the singular timbre of the bagpipes. The album ended on the robust Palindrome, part of his deep listening cycle in which the author takes us into the heart of sound material.

This sixth album by Robert Normandeau on empreintes DIGITALes simply reveals a perfect balance." [label info]
