2015 is dedicated to new recordings that will be released next year.
It is all happening in the Loire dungeon I have been occupying for a few weeks now. Going through all sort of phases. Sometimes I'm just staring at my monitors playing Chris Squire's Fish Out of Water, or the latest Migration album. Other times I'm fighting the hornets invasion. It's being done.
All that being said, there were and will be a few performances here and there (maybe a few more to be announced - but real action should be next year) :

Not a lot of other public news, except I did collaborate to AUN's "Voodoo", the last track off their new album "Fiat Lux" out on Cyclic Law. I also have some bits of work on the forthcoming Saffronkeira album, mastered at Störung Barcelona by Alex Gamez, but haven't heard the final results yet... Things happened in Eugenio's crib in Sardinia at the end of may 2014.
In other friends/collaborators/labelmates news, you should treat yourself with Mai Mai Mai's new ep on CORPOC records (it's called Petra) or the forthcoming Oneirogen EP on Denovali or Moon Zero's first LP. Martin from AUN has a new dark techno duo called Stärker that you can check right here. People in Milano, Alberto Boccardi is co-leading a new sound space called Standards. I should say that their next show is John Chantler and that his forthcoming album is my favorite from him so far. It's called "Still Light Outside" and will be out soon (he will be on the road with Lawrence English in the US in September). Piotr Kurek just came back from a tour with Bonnie Prince Billy and Lutto Lento. Does it get any better than this ?
And I have a french interview in Noisey right here.
Promoters, for those who are interested, plans are in the works right now. Get in touch when you're back from holidays.
More regular news on facebook / twitter / instagram, if it's too much for you just go to the "connect" section of this website, it's all gathered there.
Don't have much more to say.
Respect. And listen to Bonnie Prince Billy.
