Boban Ristevski + Philippe Neau
released February 2, 2022
Few of the music projects of Boban Ristevski (also known as Lefterna) are concentrated and based on exploring mostly the ambient / drone and industrial / noise related kinds of music. With elements of minimalism / improvisation / abstraction, etc.; the music is balancing between the more structured forms and the improvised approach.
Philippe Neau creates mental landscapes (“mental-scapes”, if you want). In his music he makes them up of non-narrative sounds, atonal melodies, worrifying glitches, organic textures, hollow field-recordings, abstract notes, abyssal echoes and whispered distant voices. A “disturbing” atmosphere, tinged brightness and darkness, takes shape and enfolds the listener / viewer.
“Boban contacted me for a collaboration. We exchanged files over the Internet and worked on our own, knowing each other’s work, with the idea of creating something that mixes our sound universes. Maybe some sort of stormy, industrial landscape.
In my head, this collaboration could bring more industrial sounds to my interior landscape, take on a more noisy, metallic dimension.” –Philippe Neau
