Le Parc, rapport d'observations



Glass-mastered CD housed in mini-LP sleeve. Printed outer and inner sleeves with matt finish, booklet with short story by Olivier Prieur and illustrations by Evan Crankshaw. The music and text that make up this record originate from repeated stays in Brussels. They were born from curious observations and daily recordings, which, when assembled and manipulated, became a kind of dystopian mirror game
Some of the sounds on the record were recorded in cafés, streets, a park, the Notre-Dame des Victoires church in the Sablon district, others were made with objects found on the spot, a chair, a table, a shutter, and manipulated with the tools of concrete or electro-acoustic music. Some field recordings, made in other places, were added to create this fiction that the text extends: a sort of dangerous game involving agents, observers and parakeets in a park. Sometimes their respective roles become confused, as do time and space. The Dead Mauriacs entrusted the visual aspect of the project to Evan Crankshaw, with whom they often work. With his collages, he brought a vision that deterritorialises and enriches both text and music
