A Franco-Australian quintet active 2009-2013, Thymolphthalein worked in the field of live instrumental electro-acoustic music. Employing organizational frameworks stemming from open-from 20th/21st century composition, rhythmically-geared outsider electronics and systematized improvisational strategies, this is the music of the possible.
Mad Among The Mad is the definitive document of six incredible electro-acoustic instrumental works performed by Thymolphthalein, following up their 2011 cult Editions Mego debut Ni Maître, Ni Marteau. Featuring compositions and improvisations written collaboratively by the group, this disc has been meticulously recorded over 4 European cities, capturing the band at their peak.
