Comment: these 53 minutes and 4 compositions are “dedicated” to nuclear accidents in the atomic energy plants around the world. More profoundly, at Lucens (1969), Chernobyl (1986), Kyshtym (1957), Three Mile Island (1979), and most recently at Fukushima Daiichi (2011). These are probably the most remarkable ones though smaller accidents may have been happening. Shit happens if people are doing things even if these processes are indispensable because of the mooch of the human induced economy is going to move on without possibility getting to decelerate the process. I do not think of it the nuclear reactors must be shut down just measures to avoid such sort of disasters should be even more enhanced and possible deviations to be foreseen. However, musically I tagged it as an instance of post-industrial music among the other classifications. Furthermore, one can figure it out in a very straight way. The music over there is to depict industrialized scenes being abandoned by human beings. Besides having gotten informed factually and chronologically about these highly clutch and events the audible result is staggering – lots of memory loaded hisses and glitches, arousing sonic effects, concrete music drenched glimpses, metallic drones at times being variegated with orchestrations and less abrasive electronics. These 53 minutes is a subtle play with shades between darkness and lightness, between a burden and redemptive freeing. The adverse effects are adeptly converted into a state of art. The issue is a part of the discography of Murmure Intemporel. Behind the nom de plume is Jean-Luc Hervé Berthelot, a prolific artist within the netlabel scene for many years.
