The 1884 released book „Flatland – a Romance of many Dimensions“ inspired the French electronic music artist Member U-0176 to start a new music project. „Flatland“ describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are portrayed as polygons whose social status is determined by their regularity and the number of their sides, with a Circle considered the „perfect“ shape. And as well as the geometric population undergoes modifications the sound of SIGNAL~BRUIT evolves.
Carefully designed analog sounds start to modulate, spherical soundscapes and noises are thrilling the listener before minimalistic electronic drum patterns are changing the restrained atmosphere of the song to a demanding electro track. Even there is a focused amount of elements in each track the sound space is filled with electronic complexity.
Member U-0176 produced videos for each of the 5 tracks of “Planisphère(s)” with a fascinating minimalistic motion design that transforms the electronic music worlds of SIGNAL~BRUIT into an exceptional audiovisual experience. Welcome to the Geometry of Sound and Noise!
