Clip INEDIT Mud, sortie le 26 Mars 2020


EP Mud (out MARCH 26 2020)

Between Shamanic baptism and sensory poetry, the words and notes of Mud find their setting in the
chaotic landscapes of Iceland. The song tells of an impression, an abstract feeling of pain, of weight in
the soul, sung as a war cantilena with Middle Eastern modulations.  Sacha Bernardson has lived
years on the island and has recorded rushes on the slopes of Seltun, an active volcanic site, one of
the geothermal springs of the Reykjavik area. The video comes as a tree view of the song and shed
light on the textured feelings of one of the central pieces of the album Rockall.

The Mud EP contains an edit version of the original song, developed during residencies and rehearsals.
There is also a new track: "Particular", the remix of  "Nocturne" by the Danish musician IDK IDA
and the song "Feu", originally recorded for the film by AJ Dirstystein "Don't Pray For Us",

here in a live version recorded in Reykjavik (Iceland), performed with the Mi.Mu gloves

METAVERSE:

"Since the release of my album Rockall late 2017, I wanted to work on a remix project, bringing together artists from around the world. Thinking about the shape that such a project might take, I decided to create a documentary series dedicated to each artist involved in these remixes. In the coming months, I will publish a Podcast series in English and French, to give a voice and show the richness, influences and creative process of exciting artists. This series of sound documentaries will be accompanied by EPs as well as several video clips made by me and in collaboration. At the end of the unveiling of all these contents, will be able to be born the album Metaverse, At the end of the releasing of all these contents, will be unveiled the album Metaverse including all the remixes and some new songs."
