Comment: the Frenchmen David Vilayleck aka Ayankoko and Mathieu Garrouste do create a batch of nine compositions which is based on a couple of live sessions. Recently I saw a TV show about a ghastly event when a saleswoman dialed the telephone number of a man and additionally contacted with his woman who as later was figured out had already been dead/killed. Supposedly the ghosts can use energy for their own sake coming out from the wire. Of course, by dealing with such intentional experiments one must be very warned. On the other side, we cannot eradicate a possibility regarding our lack of knowledge, our prejudices, and some sort of manipulation. It just may be a case of belief. Musically the duo provides a tense experiment with phase changes, for searching a balance between silence and noise, between abrupt intensity and stepwise relaxation. Like it is quite common to noise music some phases are just switched on and some not, and vice versa (the so-called straight, one-dimensional approach). Paradoxically the least strange/hostile element are the voices which supposedly belong to ghosts. The mind-provoking outing is a part of the discography of Ayan Records, and Clinical Archives.
