“Chimeratorium” is based on an audio dream Deison had, dreaming about a new piece together with John Duncan, they were in a large room, an old church sculpting frequencies repeatedly for hours; sounds and frequencies have been then recreated in the studio according to that particular event becoming long beautiful suites “Theta Waves” and “Portal”, a collaboration track by these two artists.
John Duncan, one of the most consistently confrontational, powerful, and compelling masters of experimentation of the last forty years here is also presenting also an unreleased track “Everyone”, an alternate mix of a track that will appear on the upcoming album called “Soft Eyes”, a project that came directly from experiences and inspirations during the "Red Sky tour" in Japan Duncan did with Eiko Ishibashi, Jim O’Rourke and Joe Talia.
*In this sprawling audio "cycle", Stephan explores analogue sounds and drones that are peaceful, subtle and abstract at times. Like any large compendium, one must revisit it time and again to capture all that is exquisitely presented. If resolute, there are many beautiful rewards to discover here.
Best w/ headphones... Enjoy!
Interview about Radiance:
is a copious archive of electroacoustic ambiences (drone like) that is artistic as well as exploratory (methods & modes). These are finely crafted sound spaces that with a sharp ear will bring meaningful rewards. Perhaps best to listen with headphones and just above silence as Stephan's art is inclusive of the whole sound path and stereo field.
*Enjoy the especial artistry of Stephan Mathieu
