Kink Gong - Tibetan Buddhism Trip
Kink Gong
Tibetan Buddhism Trip
LP | 2017 | FR | Original (Akuphone)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / FR – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Psalmody, small bells, big cymbals, gongs and drums - this puzzling collage of Tibetan Buddhist rites recordings is hypnotizing, which opens the way to a state of trance. The slight electronic arrangement still reminds that reality is not so far. The two twenty-minute tracks instantly convey an unknown and fascinating universe. Mantra chanting accelerates, horns become more insistent and a mystical atmosphere arises. With 'Tibetan Buddhism Trip', Akuphone starts exploring ritual and ceremonial music, here with a subtle mix of field recordings and electronic handlings. Recorded in Tibet and Yunnan (China) by Laurent Jeanneau between 2006 and 2013. Recomposed in Berlin in 2016.

Kink Gong
Imer Zeillos
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Discrepant)
17,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Another unique document of Laurent Jeanneau's collection of surreal soundscapes of augmented field recordings, this time using two very different source recordings to create his own unique brand of alien music. Using contact mic recordings of various Turkish instruments, saz, cura and tanbur (played by Remi Solliez), Laurent Jeanneau alchemically collages them with his archival recordings of South East Asia to create a surreal space between the instrument's tones and resonances with the other-worldly beauty of the field recordings.

Laurent Jeanneau aka Kink Gong ethnic electronic project continues on Discrepant... Since the end of the 90's, Laurent Jeanneau, also an integral Sublime Frequencies contributor, has been recording the music of mostly endangered minorities of South East Asia. Alongside his relentless pursue of remote exotic and unpublished musical traditions, he also started creating electronic versions by combining raw recordings with natural sounds, archive material and electronically treated sounds. For Voices, Laurent based his alternate re-versions around the extensive voice recordings he made on location in the southern regions of Yunnan and Guizhou in China as well as in Sapa, North Vietnam and Phongsaly, Northern Laos. The compositions contain unedited acoustic recordings, computer modified parts, sound collages and acoustic recordings of people and instruments. All tracks were recorded on location and re-arranged by Laurent Jeanneau in Dali, China. Special vinyl one time pressing to 300 copies mastered and cut at Dubplate @ Mastering by Rashad Becker.

18,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
Discrepant presents another unique document of Kink Gong's electronic deconstructions this time stepping away fromhis usual South East Asia area of expertise and releasing some of his first re-interpretations and field recordings made inthe late 90's in Tanzania, Africa.''December 1999, Tanzania. I had an appointment with James Stephenson an American friend from the 90s in NYC, heused to skip the American winter every year to be with the Hadzas bushmen and other Tanzanians tribes in Tanzania.Whilst there, James and I lost completely track of time and did not give a shit about what day Christmas was, or NewYears for that matter- with the majority of the planet knowing they were heading into the 21st Century.At some point end of December or early January 2000(?) we asked a group of Hadzas we were hanging out with, “what'sthe date today?” None understood the question but one Hadza who had been sent to school in the early 70s answeredthat we must be in 1975!Tanzania in 1999/2000, this intense trip away from all the millennium bullshit celebrations. I gathered all kinds of sounds,not only music, that expresses proximity and that was the first time I decided I was going to remix those raw recordingsinto a decent soundscape. It was also the first time I was pleased with the result- to go into a direction of redefining worldmusic, away from the commercial clichés. This has been the direction I've taken and focused on ever since with therecomposing of my Asian recordings.''Laurent Jeanneau, Berlin 2015 | Vinyl pressing to 500 copies | Mastered & Cut at Dubplate @ Mastering by Rashad Becker
