They play back to back. No need to see each other: the (young) duo is like an old couple. In a black and sweaty tank top, Maria Laurent on keyboards and Clément Chanaud-Ferrenq on drums, only form a two-headed entity named Encore. The group is not the addition of the backgrounds of its two members, one coming from hip-hop (After Beat Control), the other from jazz improvisation (Double Vision). Impro has a prominent place in the creative process of tandem that met at Cedim a few years ago. His fourth EP was recorded in a studio microphone of 37 m2 under construction: hence the impression of a music in perpetual building site, hilly (when the keyboards begin to creak), where the trance succeeds the absence ( of rhythm), where one loses his bearings between techno 100% acoustic, BO way Carpenter, jazz cubiq and rock arithmetic.
Review, Indie Rock Mag, May 2018, http://www.indierockmag.com/article30780.html
Active for three years in the metropolis of Strasbourg, Encore is a young duo electro noise of the most atypical. Articulated around a drums and synthesizers, the formation, already author of three EP, released this month his fourth self-production entitled 37 M2. Although restricted by its minimalist training, the group develops a large register with multiple sonorities. His many lines of synthesizers are the heart of his intimate creations. Each one of them develops original harmonies as melodic (Ce samedi) as noiseists (Padada). These are based on subtle rhythmic percussions closer than a real drums. Encore develops its own synergy. His compositions slowly scroll to better culminate in the superposition of keyboards loops finally deconstructed (Peut-être). 37 M2 is a real collection of incantations provided with a phantasmagorical vitality. This spontaneous trance is performed on stage by the grace of mobile mirrors allowing the formation to play back to back. Spotted by various devices accompanying the Great East, Encore has great potential in view of its current course. Let's hope that his next introspections are just as bright.
