Active since 2006 with multiple projects, involved in countless DIY or festival performances & putting out a handful of hardline releases, on their latest project 'Kleis' out in June via Gin&Platonic, the Saint-Etienne based musician and respected performer Amédée De Murcia alias 'Somaticae' examines the disturbing concept of dichotomy, fundamentally shaping the world around us.
Being a follow-up to his noise, electronica and techno-oriented past releases via Brainstorm Lab, Lost Dogs ent. or In Paradisum, Kleis (meaning key in ancient greek) offers two iterations (the third is a cassette-only bonus) of an epic and raw, yet genuinely fluid sonic riddle. Composed and recorded during 2020 in Lyon, Kleis is a rebus encrypted with grubby drums, entangled irregularly like sonic tentacles of an octopus, unpredictably rolling on tossed with the cold streams of sharp noises. „The symbolism of the key has a double connotation since it has the power to open and close. It commands access to a place, inside a box, and to an acquaintance. Conversely, it can forbid this same access, so the key has both a role of initiation and discrimination,“ says Amédée.
Super exciting experimental and deconstructed tunes on this release. This release balances really nice between the a more etheral/astral sound and some gnarly noise elements. Everything I love about deconstructed club in one go. Markus (haarek)
