-------------------

"(eco) systems is a brand new collaboration between Portland-based multimedia artist Seth Nehil (Senufo Editions, Opal Tapes, and / OAR) and prolific French sound enthusiast and composer Bruno Duplant (Mappa, Falt, Crónica). In their solo work, both Nehil and Duplant consciously blur the boundaries between acoustic and electronic sounds, and (eco) systems, their first collaboration, follows a similar sonic trajectory. 

Across two numerically titled pieces the duo simulate and explore various biomes, weather conditions, environments and creatures. Insect-like chirps echo in cavernous spaces, distorting synthesizers disintegrate into silence. At one moment thumping rhythms resemble a creature's heartbeat, at another you hear what sounds like rainfall deep in a deciduous forest during a summer storm. Synthetic, almost cinematic soundscapes slowly morph into imagined underwater worlds, only to dissolve into vast, falling waterfalls. More serene, almost ambient passages evoke rays of sunlight piercing through clouds after intense rainfall. .. 

There is an incredibly impressive fluidity and variety to Duplant's and Nehil's work on (eco) systems. Sound sources intertwine and morph in disorienting ways, as a listener you're constantly being retracted by the evocative nature of the music. The dizzying complexity of these pieces seemingly ignores the ocean that separates these two artists --one based in Northern France, the other in the Western United States. (Eco) systems sounds like two well-acquainted friends in yet another deep conversation. "
