Out of stock

Since 2004, Èlg (Laurent Gérard) has drawn concentric sound spirals made of musical pipes and entrails. He uses an arsenal of instruments and methods, constantly renewed while building improbable bridges between musique concrete and French song-writing, cartoon-like radiophonic creations and cosmic pop as well as lo-fi Dada-esque experimentation with electronic tentacles. Èlg is half of the electronic botanic duo Opera Mort, and a third of big band trios Orgue Agnes (with the members of Kaumwald) and Reines d'Angleterre (with Jo Tanz and Ghédalia Tazartes). He's had albums released by Kraak, SS-Records, Lexi Disques, Fonal, Hundebiss Records, and Alter, among others.

“I DIG COSMIC MUSIC WITH ROCKS OFF… anathema to top 40, Èlg is the holy ghost of the new sound. his music deals with the altered state with muscle -> primed on transcendence like naked hug, the fire music of his previous duos or the zap force of his earlier Nashazphone jam “Capitaine Present 5,” it feels hip to stay forever eternal in the house of mirrors & emerge on the cyclone. coney island baby bataille. there's a dimensionality of miracles herein, we were born on earth...as humans. Then there's Èlg, Laurent Gérard -> he's a love lodge, a sonic native. this is immersion music… climb upward, go down and deep. my fave cosmic strip here is in cool color… the rare moment on this LP when the guitar solo explodes from the narrative ripping a hole in "song.” through the planet of one voice, we hear the inimitable Dylan Nyoukis and the one and only OG Alan Bishop. these heads are perfect jam vehicles to hang with Laurent. Then there's the paramour lady Catherine Hershey, forever muse…roast tongue. brand new language, brave nu world. this grabs the tusk of Francois Tusques and rides Mother Gong, all glissando and Kobaïan. learned from Shandar and transporting with a freer range Lard Free, organic music that slays all inner city mountains, outer realm gotham. bluer than noon. contempo lone gunman exploratory moderne with the controls set to the heart of love. we're in the "Mauve Zone", where is bananafish? hearing is believing. a transport to future analog and digital dialup. call this dude, he's beyond rap. what a crazy fucking life.” -- Matt "MV" Valentine; Guilford, VT; spring 2016.
