After first album Planisphère(s), Signal~Bruit is back with Hyperborée.
Drawing inspiration from the journey of Pythéas, a Greek sailor from the 4th century BC who embarked on an exploration towards the northern seas,
aiming to prove the sphericity of Earth and based on the assumption that if the Earth was round then, when standing on the top of it,
he should be able to see the sun all day.
The electronic and musical landscape of Hyperborée follows the path taken by Pythéas,
leaving his home following the hypnotic rolls of the Mediterranean sea,
then in the immensity of the Atlantic ocean, northbound toward the fabled continent of Thule
and his final destination the ice-cold Hyperborean land where night and day merge.
Each track presents a different leg of the journey
and the electronic sounds and atmosphere fit with the perils and geography that Pythéas meets
to create a complex story told in synthetic sounds, analog sequences, micro rythmics
with influences from Berlin School to Intelligent Electronics.
Signal~Bruit - Hyperborée is the new release of productionB
after Novocibirsk's Télévision 1945 vol I
Hyperborée will be released on July 3. 2020, as 12'' LP vinyl, digisleeve CD album and digital download
preorders will be shipped the week before.
Novocibirsk is the product of experiments conducted by Hervé Isar between 1982 and 1993 in his home studio.
Connecting a network of synthesizers and analog sequencers to test their communications...
The result is an artificial and hypnotic music, inspired by pionneers of the 70's and raw minimalism of the underground of the 80's...
An unique metronomic combination where long floating instrumental tracks follow nervous sequences and vocoder chants.
However, settings and programming on these analog devices without memory, were uneasy to reproduce.
That could be the end of the story, but we have picked up these cassettes and achieved a long cleaning, restoration and remastering process
We all know that the music world is filled with 'hidden treasures':
This is exactly what we're talking about now and it is the perfect candidate to launch productionB
We, at productionB, love electronic sounds. We like sequences and tones.
We also love uncompromising sequenced music,
focused on the tension and texture of sounds.
And we think it's unfair that some projects remain unreleased
just because they might be more demanding...
Be ready for the next release of productionB label.
