One more duo on Intonema! Canadian artist Jamie Drouin, who uses a small selection of electronics, and German artist Hannes Lingens on snare drum and floor tom, have recorded this new album in an unusual way: Improvising in the studio using headphones, rather than monitors, the musicians were able to focus on meticulously detailed microsounds. In particular, the sounds derived from the close mic’ing of Lingen’s percussion instruments, combined with Drouin’s using that input as a sound source for his own electronics. The "Alluvium" recording process allowed their independent gestures and textures to cross pollinate each other’s, blurring the definition between their otherwise distinct instruments.
