*In process of stocking.* There are nights carved like the journey of the dead out of the livings' daylight. Mert Seger brings to our senses a two steps ritual for this debut on Kump. « Yétèkpãnra », freely inspired by the funeral rites of the Batãmmariba of Togo and Benin depicted by Dominique Sewane, runs along with no clear beginning nor any end, a sound sketch where the shapeless rustle from the depths of the night meets a procession of artefacts. In this space where the dead finds his way, time lost its importance and the whole piece can go on repeat, endlessly, a prayer wheel to guide whom can only keep his own shadow among the shadows of the other side. Two ceremonies to haunt the silence ; a new state of existence calls for a different listening. Where night becomes the beginning, again.
