BRUIT ≤ – Apologie Du Temps Perdu Vol.1 (Full EP) BRUIT ˈbrü-ē [French, literally, noise] is a post-rock/modern classical quartet from Toulouse, France. These musical meditations take the form of an ambient EP in which they were able to freely explore the idea of creating a music refuge. The whole was recorded in their studio “La Tanière” and in the “Studio Capitole” by mixing production techniques of all ages. In « La sagesse de nos aïeux », the composition have been made 100% on a paper as a tribute to the music of our ancestors, then it have been recorded and mixed on an old tape recorder. They then slowed down the tape to give this heavy and low sound that seems like fossilized.
In « Rêveur lucide » they first recorded a guitar/bass improvisation on a 90’s cassette “portastudio”. This is the basis of the whole piece, which is then cut, processed and organized on software and then re-injected into synthesizers and other more contemporary treatments. Finally, on “Les temps perdus” they worked on scores for the synthesizers and the strings and in improvisation for the piano, the bass guitar and the drums. We created textures with an old Roland tape delay and at the end finalized the mastering on a beautiful Studer tape machine at Chab mastering with Adrien Pallot. This last piece is a form of synthesis of the experimentations of the first 2 pieces.
