More Info

Hervorragendes neues Work des ex BASTARD-Musikers, in Zusammenarbeit mit einem gewissen IVAN CHIOSSONE. NARCOPHONY klingt sehr orchestral & meditativ ruhig, und steigert sich allmhlich in kakophonische Ausmae (klingt dann hnliche wie FURUDATE)...das erste Stck Petit Buddha in 5 Teilen ist inspiriert vom Spiral Insana Album von NURSE WITH WOUND! Definitiver TIP !!

For some time already, Eric Alda had been mentioning his will to work on an adaptation for machines and strings of Spiral Insana, a track recorded by Nurse with Wounds in 1986. Thrilled by the first extracts he had sent us, we soon committed ourselves to produce it.
At the same time, his encounter with Ivan Chiossone, a talented multi-instrumentalist who was then working on his first recording, induced him to broaden the scope of his initial project. This encounter has indeed quickly become a close collaboration for Ivan Chiossone has taken part in the creation and the development of the project. Finally, Narcophony is a piece of work of its own, inspired by Spiral Insana rather than a mere adaptation of it. 2 of the 5 tracks are co-signed by the two musicians and the third track, called Lo, is Chiossones own work.
This symbiosis, shared with all the guest musicians (including Franck Laurino and Franois Cuilleron, two former members of Bstard), enabled the duo to produce a magnificent record, alternating soothed atmospheres and the symphonic gushes of strings and organic sounds (oud, clarinets...). A superb voyage at the crossroads of contemporary and electronic creations. Purely and simply beautiful music. [press release]
