Matterhorn Well | Facebook
With the help of effect pedals and various playing techniques, Imre De Cauter (Myrddin & Imre De Cauter) and Matthias Dewilde (Nagløed) merge the acoustic and electronic sound worlds. Coincidence, improvisation and minimal compositions are the starting point for this. The end result is a breathtaking experience, where, with your eyes closed, you can transcend reality for a moment on an intense inner journey.
Between the twists and cracks of the mountain, a human, round shape has emerged, stretching into the depths. The resulting sound focuses outwards and blends with the echo of its surroundings. In this created tension between height and depth, Matterhorn Well searches for its form, which translates live into ever-changing, new improvisations.
This album emerged on the occasion of a photography exhibition by Belgian visual artist Francis Vanhee, on whose work the cover is inspired. Sketches for Francis arose from the improvisation sessions of Matthias Dewilde and Imre De Cauter who, struck by Vanhee’s carefully mutilated images, managed to perfectly reinterpret the colour and texture of his work musically. This pure and uninhibited primal form of the work has been preserved as much as possible and further developed into this release.
Sketches for Francis will be released on January 20th through Icarus Records / Consouling Sounds and is available for pre-order here. You can check out their recent live session exclusively here:
