musique pour bande dessinée
In the world of internet music, xarhope seems to be a rather popular name. Xarhope is Samuel Ufus and after several months of emails and a few different albums I am happy to present to you musique pour bande dessinée. When attempting to select a new pandafuzz release rarely am I looking for melodic elements that appeal to me, or even an aesthetic that connects them all. What I am really after is the attraction of something new and in the case of xarhope every album is completely new. One never knows what to expect and one is consistently surprised with the results. While you may not be immediately attracted to the busking free jazz nature of this new xarhope album….I invite you to open your windows….bring in the sounds of the streets or forest….and play this album at a very high volume.
A brief description from xarhope:
“…sounds recorded in the street and at home in different cities in arab countries like lebanon jordan and cairo, I did some kind of rude zen jams with musicians and non musicians, just people i meet in the places i stayed… we used short instruments as jawharp, bells, harmonica, tibetan bowl, castanholas, metal plates, toys and other objects that we can find in the kitchen and in the living room… the sounds from the street were recorded in cairo…”
