Tod Emel Field recordings of movement through various public spaces with all of the incidental sounds of traffic and the bustle of bodies transition to a more intimate location. Here languid passages of electroacoustic tonal variation and machinic drones accompany Truchy’s uncomfortably close whispers. His mouth sounds and fragmented bits of speech function as a sort of faltering, obsessive retort to the outside world. Beautifully structured. Compellingly real.

Jean-Sébastien Truchy and Charles Barabé are two of the most consistently interesting artists working in the field of experimental electronics today.

Truchy is a well known name in the Montréal music community, being a member of Constellation Records recording artists Fly Pan Am and more recently the outstanding Avec Le Soleil Sortant De Sa Bouche. He also ran the incredible experimental imprint Los Discos Enfantasmes. His solo recordings have reached incredible levels of artistic merit, being a consistent source of inspiration for many in the Canadian experimental community.

Barabé is a sound and visual artist, also heading his own imprint La Cohu. La Cohu has solidified itself as one of the most forward thinking cassette-based labels around, prolifically releasing over forty recordings since 2012. Barabé has seen much recent attention for his own sound recordings from notable taste-makers such as FACT Magazine, Secret Decoder, Tiny Mix Tapes, Tabs Out and just about every other underground publication around.

The sounds here are masterfully composed, creating Musique Concrète, Field Recordings, Modular Synth works that are surprising, engaging and have a sense of adventure that is lacking from many musicians working in this field.
