Thibault’s effort to render such minimal sonic sculptures was made possible by a fruitful collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Ryoko Akama. As the acting producer for this record, Akama guided Thibault to hitherto unknown terrain, improvising around and focusing within each musical gesture, accepting the sonic result as it stands; the revelation of the micro-sounds.
This record takes shape around five monochromatic pieces: mirror, thunder, static, fire & rumble. It is available in digital format on multiple distribution platforms. In addition, a limited series of laser-etched acrylic panels representing the VCS3 matrix (pictured above) are published alongside this record.
The album was composed in the studios of the University of Huddersfield. Thank you for the lovely synths!
