france with the precious help of olivier duperron and the help of

artwork : cyril herry
is a selection of tracks taken from four lecanora albums recorded
between 2001 and 2003 but were never released. only a 3"cdr
("krack" on taâlem) was issued as well as
three tracks on compilations. some lecanora live performances
were also done during that time.
this solo project created by cyril herry (ninth desert) shortly after the end of the exotoendo trio uses many archive sounds recorded in abandoned tanks unit where the trio worked (1996-1999).
most of the selected tracks are made of sound textures recorded with other people and musicians: olivier duperron (saxophone), emmanuelle paule-d'arol, julien ash, céline boisseau, stéphanie patelou and sylvie châtelain.
all these sources were then re-treated and combined in studio to create long evolutive tracks. their interest lies in texture richness, mulitple layers and their evolution through time. each piece has its own "sound history", human too, as a succession of unkikely meetings during a turning time ; sound ghosts who meet, melt and vanish...
