Esc.rec .:

" Klimperei has previously been described as pioneer of toy-music, maestro naivete, experimental, fragile, childish, neo-classical, bizarre, avant-garde and a whole lot more ... But for various reasons Klimperei's music has evolved recently. On the one hand, the confinement due to COVID has changed the way he works, but also altered his state of mind. He needed / wanted a change, to break some routines related to the'Klimperei' label. This trend towards darker, more ambient, more experimental and minimalist tracks is not, however, new: we find all of this in earlier albums ... but probably a bit less matured.

For Klimperei's album'Handpicked' the tracks were handpicked by label owner Harco Rutgers, who got to choose like a kid in a candy store, from a rather large collection of Petchanatz's work. This could just as easily have resulted in three or more excellent and very different albums (other labels out there, please pay attention!), But'Handpicked' quickly became Harco's personal favorite. Darker and more melancholic than his previous work, but not quite fully evolved into his newfound sound yet either, this feels like a transitional Klimperei album.

Musician and writer Christophe Petchanatz (aka Klimperei) is born in 1959 in Lille, now lives in Lyon. Klimperei (strumming, in German) formed in 1985, with the first album coming out in 1991 (Tout seul sur la plage en hiver) on AYAA, after some self-released tapes. Over sixty albums (CDs or vinyls) were published since, some of them in collaboration (with Pierre Bastien, Don Simón and Telefunken, Palo Alto and Frank Pahl to name a few). Petchanatz also creates music for television, theater, dance, multimedia shows and toured all around the world. "
