"La Vie dans les Airs & dans les Eaux"

by Yannick Dauby & Hitoshi Kojo



"We were touching metal with our skin, with wood and with stones. We were navigating in the obscurity, under the earth. We were probing the water with our instruments. Almost like if we were trying to let some lifeforms emerging from the land."

After years of irregular meetings and occasional recordings, I am delighted to have a collaboration with sonic weaver Hitoshi Kojo published.
Please note that this release was originally incarnated into vinyl.

released March 13, 2017

Published in March 2017, as a 10" record on black vinyl and with full colour sleeve, lim. 300 copies, by Drone Records, in the series Substantia Innominata (SUB-24).

Substantia Innominata
"A concept that embraces the prospect of infinite possibilities for artists to create music about the intangible such as: The Unnameable, The Unspeakable, The Unthinkable, The Unidentifiable, etc. Various aspects related to 'The Unknown'. Sound artists and artwork designers were invited to work on the theme of the 'grey matter' / the 'dark continent' surrounding us & within us: Transforming this paradoxical idea into acoustic and visual objectifications."
