Laurent Fairon – Chant de Naufrage

Laurent Fairon

“Chant de Naufrage”

New, Bandcamp-exclusive album.
11 tracks, 64mn, free download.

These tracks came to life growing on pre-existing musics like epiphytes do on plants or trees. Found herein are excerpts and samples from 78rpm laughing record, operatic singer, 20th century contemporary musics, YouTube detritus, etc, as well as a flotsam of electronic loops, synth sounds and the omnipresent human voice, especially wordless female vocals – hence the title ‘Chant de naufrage’, French for Hymn of Wreckage.

File under experimental-ambient, post-industrial, musique concrete, collage
