The path we all need to follow...
La Mort De L’Hippocampe was the short-lived project by
Jérôme Fontan after he stopped his elektro project Porn.Darsteller.The project
ended with the unexpected death of Jérôme in June 2011.
This is the second and
last album, but was produced before the ‘Symphonie Neuronale’ album released
earlier this year. Jérôme preferred that album to be released the first. So it
‘Cheminement De L’Extase’ is much more a spiritual record as the first one. It comes in two parts. The first part is a metaphysic poem illustrate with experimental, industrial and classical sounds.
Next to analog sounds done with Minimoog and tape echo also acoustic instruments like percussion and electric violin are used.
The second part is mostly based on texts from Hildegard von Bingen. This part is rather old school industrial in sound but this is mixed with medieval instrument like "vielle à roue" and "bombarde
bretonne". The lyrics are done in spoken word style by Isabelle Toro who was also featured on the first released album.
Again this La Mort De L’Hippocampe album is released as a co-production between Enfant Terrible and Verbascripta. And again the artwork is true craftsmanship done by Bran.
