Vomir – “Application a Aphistemi” – [Maison Bruit]

vomir

Romain Perrot is a French dad who makes “walls” in his spare time: long recordings of harsh, loud, dense and nonmusical sound that change little over time. This style has been dubbed Harsh Noise Wall or Static Noise, other practitioners of this vile art including Richard Ramirez (as Werewolf Jerusalem) and The Rita. In an interview, the composer discussed the concept of the ‘Harsh Noise Will Manifesto,’ which has to do with the increasing atomization and selfishness inherent to modern Western society. For him, he says, Harsh Noise Wall is a place where he can exist away from the world. In this sense the practice shares the escapist qualities of a religion. Performing live, Perrot often wears a garbage bag over his head, in defiance of France’s laws against sporting religious head coverings in public.

Two tracks 2011:

T.1 = ‘Paulina Semilionova Would Go To The Knacker‘ = 40m = noise generators and effects = will make you grind your teeth.
T.2 = ‘The Appearance Of Truth Is A Moment Of Falsehood’ = 20m = electro-acoustic 12-string guitar = will make you shiver.

Don’t expect much to happen.

Vomir means ‘to vomit’ in French.
