David Hykes - The Harmonic Choir, Hearing Solar Winds, Coll. Ocora, Lp, 1980

The Harmonic choir was formed by David Hykes in 1975. An accomplished experimental filmmaker with a deep interest in traditional and sacred music, David Hykes had already acquired broad familiarity with the music of West and Central Asia when he first heard of the Hoomi singing (literally "throat singing") indigenous to western Mongolia, and the overtone chanting of Tantric Tibetan Buddhism. In the Hoomi tradition, singers produce a fundamental tone in the bass or baritone range, and then by extemely precise modulation of... [Lire la suite]

Normes Françaises 1711294046029, Les Limites de l'Identité Sexuelle, Fra Dolcino Prod., C40, 1999

Normes Françaises 1711294046029 (= NF) is a Fra Dolcino side project run by the one responsible of the two last posts. Thanks. Post-industrial, ambient stuff. The music of NF consists of sampled manipulated and repeted sounds on which one can hear voices, perhaps songs, in various languages. ambiences are created, or even recreated, they draw inspiration out of the past, of the present. In concert, these sounds and voices come from tape recorders and a laptop. The man seldom intervenes. He becomes machine and machines become... [Lire la suite]
