David Fenech, Klimperei

Rainbow de Nuit (LP)

Label: Marionette

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


Evocations of experimental and improvised jazz, chansonesque songs, bluesy folk, and outsider music from Klimperei and David Fenech using everything from music boxes and walkie-talkies down to plastic straws, various stringed instruments such as the charrango and banjo, kazoos and snake-charmer ocarina and flutes, all the way through the sweet accordion and melodica, found and traditional tuned percussion. The pieces presented on Rainbow de Nuit treat the ears to a carousel ride waltzing through a multiverse made up of surrealist puppet theaters, dramatic film noir act changes, and a mosaic of polyphonic instruments and toys alike. In other words, a score to a fable brought to life with haunting yet charming melodies and occasional hallucinatory voices reminiscent of laughter and infantile epiphanies which we hear on 'Tarzan en Tasmanie' and 'Madrigal for Lola'. This is taken a step further by David Fenech, to a brief libretto of incomprehensible tongues on 'Pocarina'. Amid the mysterious and dark ('Septième Ciel' and 'Rugit Le Coeur') also lies tender and simple compositions ('Rainbow de Nuit' and 'Chevalier Gambette'), murky suspenseful melancholy ('Levy Attend' and 'Eno Ennio'), and casually slipping into pensive psychedelic backdrops ('Un Cercueil à Deux Places') -- forming a colorful blend of sounds. A world of echoes. A tale of tales. One persistent earworm that you'll likely be whistling and humming along to on a first listen."
