Laurent Chambert is a French visual artist and composer who has been creating beautiful and unusual art since 1990. His installations are playful, thought-provoking and visually-arresting. As a musician he has been involved in several acclaimed projects, the most recent of which is the electronic duo The Other Colors.
Laurent's submission to Blue Tapes is When The Cat Is Away The Mice Will Play
In his solo work, Laurent combines field recordings with flickering patterns of electronic sound that are both grid-like and strangely euphoric. Like the brilliant Italian producer Lorenzo Senni/Stargate, some of his work almost feels like a stripped-down-to-the-bare-atoms reading of techno. At other times it feels pastoral and immersive. Always, Laurent's music is intrinsically 'plugged-in' to his environment, whether it's the bustling cityscapes of Paris described by When The Cat... or the wells of ambient silence in his improvisations recorded in the French countryside.
We've parcelled Chambert with a similar electronic sound artist, Chris Smith of High Wycombe, England. A studio engineer by day, Chris makes delicious minimal synth-structures under the name The Fractal Skulls. Influenced by the god-twins of John Cage+Steve Reich and Cluster+Harmonia, the music of The Fractal Skulls is unashamedly pretty, full of clockwork-like analogue pulses and holy repetition.
We've stepped our game up packaging-wise for blue four. The release comes as a handmade fabric parcel, each decorated with a totally unique and no-two-are-the-same handmade cyanotype print. Inside the parcel are the two cassettes and sticks of nag champa incense. The parcels are stitched shut. You will have to physically fight them to release the sounds within.
Given that access to music is terrifyingly easy and taken for granted these days, we liked the idea of making you work for your monthly dose of mantra. It only makes the reward all the more transcendent!
