after the classical music and breakcore hybrid release 'doème' and the highly energetic album 'go quantum!', 'terre de pierres' marks a directional shift for lingouf showing yet another facet of his constant variation of styles and tempers. a challenging mixture of analog electronics, acoustic instruments and field recordings intended to be listened to as a whole. vincent ingouf's concept behind most of this album was the usage of self-recorded acoustic sources as keyboard instruments, like a long case clock, an accordion, water filled crystal glasses, a bontempi organ, metallic objects and his own voice. the result is music that can not be composed on these sources, but the spirit of the sounds are actually there - it just needs electronic aid to bring them to light. furthermore, field recordings such as a chinese new year's celebration in paris and contributions by his friends - even by his dog nausicaa - back up the cumulative beats, vibrating sub basses and melodic synth sequences. finally the compositions are charged with a multitude of sound manipulations enriched with a dub-like analog delay to result in unique works of art. 'terre de pierres' offers a permanent change of dense atmospheres from dark and slightly melancholic to warm and affirmative. an organic, intriguing and contemporary electronica release that will keep its audience framed in intense expectation.
