1 - KIRMANN, FRANZ - ELYSIAN PARK - (CD) 
DENOVALI


The album was born from Hyper Trophies, a 2012 installation project by Berlin art studio Zeitguised that Kirmann was commissioned to soundtrack. Both the visual and sonic aesthetic of that project were instrumental in defining the artistic and sonic approach to Elysian Park. Hyper Trophies was a crossover art/fashion project and consisted of three endless video loops presented in a vertical format and showing unemotional and deadpan female models floating amongst nocturnal backdrops, evoking ghostly figures in some apocalyptical wastelands. That static verticality and the feeling of loneliness are very present in the 14 compositions that form Elysian Park. The music fades in and out, creeps up on you and disappears; The tracks bear no traditional structures, seem to lead nowhere and have no obvious melodies, riffs or no beats to hang on to. There is a deep sense of space and emptiness surrounding the music forcing the listeners attention to focus on the physicality of the sound rather than any melodic, harmonic or rhythmical content. Kirmann refers to this record as "environmental", and is clearly interested in setting a space for the listener to wander around and it is as if the music was approached in a sculptural way, the pieces born through carving into the sounds rather than the sounds being organised over a linear timeline.Another key influence on the development of "Elysian Park" was the reading of Michel Houellebecqs 2005 novel The Possibility Of An Island. In Franz Kirmanns mind, Zeitguised digital sculptures offered an interesting graphic extension of the novels themes in which human clones living in a post apocalyptical future study the lives of their originator from the early 21st century and attempt to understand human emotions and connect with each other. The Hyper Trophies video loops feel very organic and their textures strangely real, as if made of rubber or fabric, and the lines between whats real or digitally made are blurred. The sonic materials on Elysian Park proceeds from a similar approach: whether created from YouTube recuperated advertising, mangled pop samples, speech synthesis programs or digitally recreated ethnic instruments, they all converge to create a virtual world made of "sonic junk" that may feel abstract or alienating but also vaguely familiar.But for all its bleak harshness, there are many moments of tranquil clarity on Elysian Park and a sense of a search for a better, more peaceful place. The brooding and bleak numbers are offset against pieces of sepulchral beauty (Tears In Your Eyes, Halcyon, Darknet) or sedated peacefulness (Mirage / Diazepam Dreams / Paradiso Beach). Through its everyday sounds vaporised into oblivion, and its majestic sense of emptiness, Elysian Park eschews a fragmented black geography of an emotionally alienated consumerist society.

3 - KIRMANN, FRANZ - MERIDIANS - (CD) 
DENOVALI


Best known as half of post-classical / electronica duo Piano Interrupted, London based French producer Franz Kirmann goes back to his electronic roots with "Meridians", his second album. Strongly influenced by movies (he used to be a film editor and filmmakers Wong Kar Wai, Michelangelo Antonioni, Sergio Leone or David Lynch are happily cited alongside his musical influences), Franz Kirmann has a weakness for walls of sounds and fragile melodies, which to him are the sonic equivalent of slow-motion sequences, travelling shots or landscapes in cinemascope. For fans of Cliff Martinez, Clint Mansell, Max Richter

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dancing On The Edge Of The Void 6:42 02. He Watched As She Disappeared Into The Crowd 5:09 03. That Day We Threw The Keys Out The Window 5:46 04. They Drove All Night Only To Find Themselves Back Where They Started 10:37 05. Where Did We Go Wrong? 5:21 06. Glider 4:19 07. Only When Your Eyes Are Closed 4:31 08. Good Morning Bright Star 4:03 09. Excelsior 4:27 10. Ghost Of A Smile 4:11 11. With Such Sweet Despair 4:45 12. You Fall In Love With Someone Else 3:17
