artist : Etant Donnes
label : penultimate press
80年代から活動しているモロッコのラバト出身の兄弟 Etant Donnesが過去にリリースしていた音源をpenultimateがLP再発。
Royaume / Aimant + Aimant – is second in the three part re-issue series focussing on the works of Etant Donnes based around field recording
Royaume (originally a CD on Touch, 1991) is made up of 4 tracks and is a kind of purifying travel through the four elements which symbolically refers to the light evoked by the colour green, an allegory of the grail and of the light- carrier angel. As to the poems, they tend to amount to their essentials, as is the case in Matin which is both Taoist and surrealistic.
Aimant + Aimant – (originally as a split 10”/CD on Danceteria,1992) presents itself as a magical alchemical mantra based upon the force of love, the force of life. Two pole like two bodies like two hearts like two magnets.
