Written, mixed and produced by Olivier Arson
Co-produced by Abel Hernández
Mastering by Taylor Deupree (12k Mastering)
After 3 years of obsessive recording sessions of a music made of skin and steel, more physical, organic and narrative, Olivier Arson achieves his most personal as well as his most collective work thanks to the collaboration of a constellation of musicians from the alternative spanish scene, and that now concludes with the release of “Mandorle”, an elusive and addictive mystery.
Eight scenes, silent or narrated in french, that shift between dark drone ambient, a singular, creeping pop concerned with articulating silences and physical gestures —which Taylor Deupree, founder of the 12k label, in charge of mastering, has perfectly respected—, and a variable post-rock leaning towards the elastic tension of jazz or exploding in outbursts of kraut-rock.
“A brutal and extreme record, delicate and subtle, beautiful beyond words.” (Go Mag, 14th best record of the year)
“Tremendous. A genius”
(PlayGround, 4th best record of the year)
“A devastating punch in the face.”
“A musical UFO of repetitive alchemy and embodied ambient. Haunting” (Vers du silence)
