Cory Arcane is the fifth LP from the French-born, Berlin-based experimental techno producer, real name David Letellier. Like the previous four, including the most recent, Solens Arc, from early 2014, it will come through Raster-Noton. Letellier typically brings a conceptual, cinematic approach and a rebellious spirit to his work, and this one would seem to continue in that vein.
The press release for Cory Arcane comes with an essay from the artist himself, which describes what appears to be the album's titular character. "Cory Arcane found her comfort zone in a constant state of crisis, and her liberation through love, sensuality, and high-speed internet access... Her emancipation was surely marked by different forms of excess: the inappropriate use of fireworks, the consumption of large quantities of alcohol and controlled substances, as well as the occasional blasts of kitchen appliances."
Featuring cover artwork from Marina Minibaeva, the nine-track LP will first arrive on October 30th via CD and digital formats, with a double-vinyl version to follow at some point in November.
