Arandel / In D (INF0022)
Arandel's first album is a musical treasure hunt. Conceptual and inspired, In D, outlines over eight chosen variations a radically different brand of music, at the crossroads between lo-fi and electronic aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from the experimental New York scene, Arand has set himself a stric methodology for composing and recording : under no circumstances would he resort to midi equipment or samplers. In order to retain the feel of electronic sound textures without using prefabricated sounds or digital effects, Arandel set off to explore a broad palette of sometimes ancient and often rare instruments, with an approach not dissimilar to that of a electronic Meliès.
