Debut album from Papillon, a new project by Discrepant head honcho, Gonçalo F Cardoso and with guest appearances by Cédric Stevens and Kink Gong.
Taking inspiration from the 1969 French adventure book of the same name, Papillon explores the sonic interzones between dream and nightmare.
Through the use of augmented field recordings, Papillon uses the ‘exotic’ jungle as the starting point to develop a dense and evocative sound where ethnic recordings, impromptu synth jams, modular synthesis and foley art effects come together to create a quasi-mystical crackpot mix of esoteric visions, near death experiences, shamanism, fever deliriums and lucid dreaming.
The compositions were constructed from raw and digitally treated analogue modulators by Cédric Stevens, edited acoustic recordings by Laurent Jeanneau aka Kink Gong, lo-fi synthesizers by Gonçalo F Cardoso as well as guest drums by David Naan.
