Ayankoko: ppooll on Max/msp
Mathieu Garrouste: electronic
A very contemporary ambient noise music akin to noise / shouting, where irritating bursts meet devastated post-industrial landscapes, in which a human hand can sometimes be felt…
Laptop and turntable improvisations inspired by digital noise, rather than analog synths, it’s not electronic music, but sounds based on an interruption.
A bandwith of a hail of information, encoded and compressed, made audible and manipulated, but very similar to the original signal, information encoded by protocols we are unable to understand, without an appropriate interface, so it’s better to play with them and feel them.
