Dear all, I’m booking some dates for STEPHAN MATHIEU in June 2013. Territory: Everywhere. Availability: June 2013 Different projects are possible: STEPHAN MATHIEU (solo) STEPHAN MATHIEU + SYLVAIN CHAUVEAU MAIN (STEPHAN MATHIEU + ROBERT HAMPSON) STEPHAN MATHIEU (solo) Stephan Mathieu (born 11 October 1967) is a German musician and sound artist whose work is based on digital and analog processing techniques. He lives and works in Saarbrücken, Germany. Stephan Mathieu is a self-taught composer and performer of his own music, working in the fields of electroacoustics and abstract digitala. His sound is largely based on early instruments, environmental sound and obsolete media, which are recorded and transformed by means of experimental microphony, re-editing techniques and software processes involving spectral analysis and convolution. STEPHAN MATHIEU + SYLVAIN CHAUVEAU It’s no secret how much we’ve loved Stephan Mathieu’s sublime drones and Sylvain Chauveau’s delicate compositions in the past, so to see these two pillars of experimental music collaborating has got us hot under the collar. But that’s not the half of it – not only did the two decide to work together, they had a very specific concept – ‘Palimpsest’ finds the duo reframing the timeless songs of Bill Callahan (aka Smog). MAIN (STEPHAN MATHIEU + ROBERT HAMPSON) There has been a recent surge in activity from Robert Hampson, with all manner of solo recordings and performances popping up. Its only logical that he reactivates his beloved Main project. As we all know, Main laid the foundations during the 1990s for much of love of abstract guitar treatments in electronic music throughout the 2000s. Hampson has teamed up with Stephan Mathieu to create a stunning new album. On ‘Ablation’, Mathieu adds extra tonal colour and an obscure rhythmic palette to Hampson’s exacting treatments and detailed use of layered concrète sounds to create an emotionally charged and fascinating work. Old fans of Main will not be disappointed, and neither will new followers of experimental audio. I look forward to hearing from you asap. Regards.
