Black holes of the semantic space (les trous noirs de l’espace sémantique) are related to the dialogues of the deaf, a common activity on this strange planet.

In this album, the sounds come and go, hesitate, disappear and then they reappear more far in time. They are trying to avoid, but also they are scrambling to finally get lost in space, without even trying to harmonize.

These chaotic soundscapes act as a reflection of our society of hyper-communication in which the informations, the messages, all the words, and all the data get lost anywhere.

Nobody try to understand and everything always ends in a great dialogue of the deaf, each arguing for oneself, and ultimately the knowledge is lost in the black holes of the semantic space.

Berthelot – «Mécanique Des Limbes»

Berthelot - «Mécanique Des Limbes»Cat.# … DNA 166
Release Date … 02.02.2015
Genre … Electroacoustic, Post-Concrete
Type … FLAC Lossless

In French language, the word «limbe» (singular) represents the tangible in the fields of Astronomy (the disk edge of a celestial body), of Botany (the broad and flattened part of a leaf), and of the Mechanical Precision (the circular or semicircular edge engraved of a measuring instrument).

In the plural, «limbes», the word falls in both literary and psychological fields of abstractions. It becomes pale and dull (in speaking of a light), or it turns into uncertain states and touches the unconscious and the unreal.

If some people leave their dreams in the limbo of the awakening to better forget them, Berthelot strives to explore these limbo to facilitate the memory of his dreams. The sounds of «Mécanique des limbes» show this exploration in the uncertain states of awakening, where the real and the unreal are merged.

Recorded in January 2014 somewhere in France.

With weird and cold atmospheres lacerated by strange ambient noises, Zreen Toyz paints poisoned industrial landscapes.

We produce more and more industrial wastes but we recycle them by small quantities: we made a pocket recycling.
