More Info

Ily, Almera is the second album by French composer and performer Matthieu Fuentes, who debuted in 2021 with a promising album on Penultimate Press. Matthieus music sprung from the "musique concrte" tradition, using elements and fragments of electroacoustic music, field recording and sound art.

Ily, Almera features ambiguous sources and unknown presences recorded from 2018 to 2022. Manipulated and re-edited on a computer and a Revox B77 reel-to-reel tape recorder, these materials are brought together to give a polysemic perception of space, sometimes with the help of synthetic trickery. Dreamed scenes, texts, questions on acousmatic and time arts fuel the process of a poetic research. Like a distant and distorted memory, Ily, Almera wanders in reality and fiction, media and body, the domestic and the high-speed outside world, tangible and delirium, in and out-of-frame phenomena. The sonic outcome is a fragile assemblage, a dynamic interplay of well sculpted nervous collages, overwhelming tunnels, smoother sequences and delicate soundscapes.

Ily, Almera has a total length of 40 min. Its available on a limited edition of 100 copies.
