Herbal Records: Eric Cordier & Afflux CDs
Selected Field Recording 1993 – 2006 Digipack CD
Recorded in Niseko, southwest of Hoka?Ødo and in Osorezan, northern of Honshu in August 2006. Gas emanation of volcano in Japan. The sound recordings were carried out in the depths and then re-organised. We listen to gas bubbling in water, gas mouths, gas that creates rhythms while escaping from under a dead leaf down in the clay, whistling‚Ä¶All panoramic movements, repetitions, effects of phasing have been carried out during the time of the recording, travelling at the mouth to gather the sound of sulphur gas as a sound pallette.
Hypnotic and sometimes unsettling collection of field recordings from Eric Cordier, French musician / composer / sound artist, who dabbles as a member of the musique concrete ensemble Afflux with Jean-Luc Guionnet and Eric La Casa.
Bordeaux TNT 2006 CD
“Afflux is a collaborative project by Eric Cordier, Jean-Luc Guionnet and Eric La Casa and features a series of excerpts taken from a 6-hour installation / live performance at the TNT cultural centre in Bordeaux. The artists created a wonderful soundscape by recording the inner space of the building itself, then manipulating and processing it in real-time. Dense, striking and full of interesting, engaging moments it captures the sense of a busy space with style and panache. There’s a beauty here that becomes more and more apparent with each listen. Superb.” – SmallFish
“Afflux is an ongoing collaboration of French electroacoustic sound technicians who have habitually tackled large scale installations and convoluted recording situations,” describes Wire Magazine.
