    Cassette + Digital Album

    "The cassette format begets humility, and there’s nothing bigheaded in the way that Clara de Asís and Bruno Duplant present their music. They might even be pulling our legs a bit; the album’s title L’inertie translates as Inertia, and its side-long pieces are named “La Paresse” (“Laziness”) and “La Lenteur” (“Slowness”). But there’s nothing tossed-off about the patience and close listening that went into making this music. It is, essentially, a pair of drones built from de Asís’ continuous guitar sounds and Duplant’s organ chords. But within each apparently monolithic sound is a world of change; it’s just enacted, in the tradition of Eliane Radigue and Phill Niblock, in slow motion. Listen close and the drone splits into hums, whistles, and a subsonic presence that’ll make you think that someone has hidden a black hole in your boombox. Splendid stuff." - Bill Meyer, Dusted Magazine

about

Clara de Asís: Spanish composer and experimental guitarist based in France. Her works involve electroacoustic, improvised music and studio composition. She uses different combinations of materials and sound sources, with a main focus on electric guitar. She has developed a non-conventional and personal instrumental approach; with longstanding interest in minimalist frameworks, spacial auscultation and temporal suspension.

Bruno Duplant: composer, sound manipulator, and multi-instrumentalist based in the north of France, whose primary instruments include the doublebass, percussion, organ, electronics, and field recordings. Time and Space are concepts, entities, and materials for Duplant to approach with a certain nostalgia and poetry, and he is a frequent collaborator with a wide range of musicians from around the globe.

These recordings feature Clara and Bruno predominantly on guitar and organ, respectively, and in unison.
