Fast forward to 2015 and we find Antoine Panaché trapped in our digital era. He is an outsider, trying to find his place in this haunting world. His fears are being transferred into music by L.S., using field recordings, analog and digital equipment. This resulted in a first effort last year and now in a haunting tape, released by Dutch label Barreuh records.
The tape opens with the eerie, ghostly 'Avagadena', a track with minimal percussion and spooky voices. 'La Mariée Blanche' delves, if possible, even deeper into obsurity, once again driving on a minimal but hypnotic set of percussion and including these strange voices. It also mixed perfectly with the equally bizarre 'Gnawing Desire', which somehow deserves the term 'blackened' (even though there's absolutely no metal involved).
The music can be seen as experimental electro-acoustics, influenced by everything from Coil to Deutsch Nepal but mostly by the natural flow between the artist and his/her equipment. The album closes with two equally frightening songs ('Bucharest' and the long title track 'J'Ai Un Âme Solitaire') making the whole perfect as a soundtrack for an apocalyptic horror movie.
In all, this is a strange but fascinating tape (also available as a digital download by the way). If you're a fan of industrial experimental music, this surely is your thing. So, since the tape is quite limited, hurry up and get your hands on a copy, you certainly won't be disappointed.
