Product Description

Scandinavian multi-disciplinary artists Jonas Rönnberg & Christian Stadsgaard join Avian as The Empire Line for new EP Syndicat de la Couture.

Recorded at Mayhem, Copenhagen’s experimental performance and rehearsal venue, the EP sets a pair of heady Noise recordings against more streamlined club fare – though both approaches maintain the same visceral, cinematic quality, with caustic drones pitching and bending in and amongst warped sequences or more rhythmic drum machine elements.

Though it remains based at the fertile juncture between contemporary experimental Techno, Noise & Industrial, like much of either artist’s output, the music that makes up Syndicat de la Couture‘ works as a decidedly high octane vehicle for the duo to draw on wider aesthetic concerns.

The project takes its name from Cristóbal Balenciaga‘s Empire line, a collection presented by the Spanish designer in the late 50’s featuring a womenswear silhouette that remains widely regarded as his finest contribution to the world of fashion.
