Faszinierende, sanfte Flusslandschafts - field recordings from magic acoustic reality Meister YANNICK DAUBY ! Stark limiertiertes Vinyl-Album.

"Yannick may be best known for his collaborative work with mnortham and Thomas Kner. La rivire penche is located near his home in Lyon. From what he has told me, there is a rock shelter-like structure on one of the banks of the river where he decided to collect these recordings. We have the pleasure of hearing richly textural compositions made up of recordings taken at the rivers' banks, the manipulation of found objects, and some electronic elements. As one might expect, the record reflects a snapshot of a place -- running water, stones, soil, metallic timbres, wind, rain, and even bats -- all electronically altered so the sounds become something recognizable, but different. He has woven these sounds together into six pieces that span about 40 minutes. For some reason, we felt that the music found here is best suited for vinyl. Perhaps it is the organic quality of what Yannick does. Strictly limited edition to 280 copies." [label press release]

Yannick Dauby succeeded in producing a more than excellent LP, which fit a small but strong tradition. [FdW/Vital Weekly]
