Sounds were created with Plectrum Vital Arts, Nord Rack 2 Nordlead, Blofeld Waldorf, A3000 Yamaha, Battery 5, Razor, Kontakt & Skanner NI, TC Electronic Powercore 6000 Unit and some secret tools.
The drum section provides intense IDM loops fusing crunchy grains with irregular clicks and more than 100 unique one-shot elements: loud kicks, crispy snares, dirty crystal Hi Hats, undefined short noises, consequences of insolent routings.
AETHERS 01 also offers 50 long emotional field recordings captured by Vincent Villuis with his Nagra Technology recorder & NT4 Rode. Live clips from all over the world, rumours from New Delhi, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Paris, Saint-Malo, Chicago, London… Some audio bugs were left intentionally to keep the authenticity. Most of them are looped, creating an immersive and cyclic feeling.
Audio mastering at Ultimae Studio.
