ALDEA, ERIC & CHIOSSONE, IVAN (NARCOPHONY)
For some time already, Eric Aldéa (BÄSTARD) had been mentioning his will to work on an adaption for machines and strings of "Spiral Insana", a track recorded by NURSE WITH WOUND in 1986.
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 who 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 adaption of it.
2 of the 5 tracks are co-signed by the two musicians and the third track is Chiossone's own work.
This symbiosis, shared with all the guest musicians (including former BÄSTARD members) enabled the duo to produce a magnificient record, alternating soothed atmospheres and the symphonic gushes of strings and organic sounds.
A superb voyage at the crossroads of contemporary and electronic creations. Purely and simply beautiful music.
