180g LP in fine paper silkscreen printed cover. Recorded in Lausanne 2010-2011. 'RÃ©sistance Ã l'etau' by Swiss sound artist Kiko Esseiva sums some of his most interesting sonic experimentations into a complete and solid piece of ÃÂÃ‚Â”outsider' musique concrÃ¨te album. Utilizing multiple techniques of electroacoustic music, such as field recordings, electronic feedbacks and reel to reel tape arrangements, this album has a strong narrative structure and a personal musical statement. Combining different formal tendencies (from tape music to harsh noise, from drone music to environmental recordings) Esseiva succeeds to create a contemporary interpretation of traditional musique concrÃ¨te, fresh and innocent, balancing compositional elements to electronic improvisations.
