"From the launch of Zune in 2007, to the restyling of iOSX this year, a newborn minimalism echoes the principles of Bauhaus; simplicity, expressive force and modularity, but with a new spirit that Di Cola tries to capture with these works. A spirit that embraces the chaotic past of graphics, with its errors and anomalies, to absorb them, regenerate them and apply them, with a somewhat synesthetic vocation."
Very happy Sébastien Tellier has returned with something reminiscent of his earlier work for the next album.
“ Winding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it – if at all – I’ll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.”
Walking away to make more time to feed the subconscious and discover. Good medicine.
