90年頃に古いレコードやオープンリール、物、捨てられた楽器を使い音制作を開始した米サウンドアーティストSeth Nehil、そしてケージ、ラディーグ、フェラーリから強い影響を受け実に多くの音源を残し続けるフランスのBruno Duplant、十分なキャルリアを持つ2者の恐らく初となる共演。生楽器、環境音、デジタル&アナログシンセサイザーにて、ゆっくり且つ流動的エレクトロアコースティック/アンビエントをフワフワと漂わす約33分のロングトラック2曲。このレーベルに合わせてか硬いサウンドが多く、そのバランスが感がとても美しい。
(eco)systems is a mix of acoustic instruments, field recordings, digital and analogue synths, structured in algorithmic cycles, random fluctuations, slow evolutions and large timescales, networks of events, systems of repetition, interactions between sound characters, a movement of cut / copy / paste, erase & rewrite in an endlessly renewed back and forth, a fluid and evocative movement, until two ecosystems emerged, as fictitious as they are real.
