Composed on a special request from ini.itu, â€œRivages sur l'antipodeâ€? ("shores on the opposite side of the earth") is his first vinyl LP and is
based on similar archival material as the one used by Francisco LÃ³pez in his stunning â€œuntitled #228â€?. Nonetheless, d'incise has
achieved radically different results, combining digitally-processed textures, microsamples and humming harmonics rippling out over
broken rhythms. He has collaged the least obvious bits of gamelan, many grainy soundbytes from Jakarta, Makassar, Bandung and
Yogjakarta into a kaleidoscopic reinterpretation of these shattered fragments. Sudden transitions, alinear progressions and
melancholic, sprawling, autumnal atmospheres reveal a very personal soundworld.
This LP could evoke Kim Hiorthoy on sedatives under moist tropics, or an alter-ego of Burial in a futuristic decaying Jakarta won back
by the jungle, with hints of digital crispiness from Kid606 pÃ©riode Mille Plateaux; a touch of the microsampling of Akufen, all of this
marinated into the experiments in folk deterritorialisation made by some Ritornell artists such as Random_Inc / Sebastian Meissner.
Icing on the cake, this LP was mastered by James Plotkin in Philadelphia.
