More Info

"At first, philippe lamy is a painter and a teacher in plastic arts at the national superior school of architecture in toulouse, france. some years ago he began experimenting with music, now using his technique with soundscapes and field recordings. After numerous promising releases on various netlabels, he has recently confirmed the hopes many people placed in him with two cd releases on dronarivm and mystery sea. These two pieces were recorded and composed last year and show all his skills..." [label info]


"The least dark is the release by Philippe Lamy, who also had releases on Mystery Sea, as well as Dronarivm, and bases his ambient music on the use of processed field recordings, just like Mathes does. But in Lamy's work there is room for a bit of air, a fine amount of higher pitched sounds, and is more glitch like perhaps. Maybe also a bit more abstract, with music being further removed from the original source material, which is no longer to be recognized. Maybe it's also the music that is less linear and more chopped into various bits, like an acousmatic composition. These two pieces are the most varied bits of music of these three new Taalem releases. Whereas the others are maybe more text book like ambient pieces, here we are dealing with some more in depth composition. That is not say that one is better than the other, as I quite enjoyed all three for what they are." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
