Some call it sound-art, new music, research sounds, acoustic experimentations or liminal sounds, we just call them Pepite, golden nuggets: tips on sound research, precious bits of our programming. Each week we select few Pepite and highlight them into our free from streaming.

Yet another unusual monograph for this week golden nuggets: a recording project born from the crossover of two different labels, one 'improv' label from Switzerland (Insubordinations) and a "electronic" one from France (Tsuku Tsuku Grammofon). 

The outcome of this meeting is a journey into the elctroacoustic space in which seven musicians reworked the 2006 album Complaintes de marée basse by Diatribes & Abdul Moimême.

It is pretty curious to hear how each musicians used the original material with very different concerns, according to their own usual practice. Some use them as field recording, others work with sorts of dub, remixing technics, some turned totally the sounds into their worlds without any attempt to keep a trace of the sources. And none of this sounds wrong, but in every case established dialogs between the reworks and originals, showing each time another vision of the role or value of recorded sound.

If we managed to trigger your curiosity, here is the link to download the album:
