a slow process

Everything seems to be so slow with me.

but it is here : the official elegia's fan page

its content should find some interest during the wait for the next adventures, cause yes, there will be things outputed this year.

Another communication tool is up since a few days & you will find there some exclusive contents

Oh really ! at LAST !

Quite some good news concerning my past records as you can see below !

Firstly i have asked for this , me among others artists from the good 'old days of f communications, for years.....

So yes it is here , F communications with the help of PIAS have just released a digital online store where you can get the digital copies of the back catalogue, including almost all released things from elegia.

direct link to the store

And yet another great thing, i would like to thank the authors of a new site for focusing on elegia, on the issue #8 of their very good podcast that you will find here :

That is all for today .

shit happens

Pretty much an old truth you must admit , but yes the process is stopped since a few weeks now...

"Shit happens" & it happenned as far as i'm concerned to a close member of my family.

As a result everything is delayed, with those stressfull moments , the very sad ones as well, it is just "life"....

but still it hurts....

back soon with fresh news & with listenable material...

it continues

Got no time to post anything yesterday , i was quite busy in fact , at designing & working the sounds i have recorded into different modules.

I'm mixing different techniques, using different technologies such as resynthesis, sampling, or the "cuttings", i am having FUN.

The recording went fine i must confess , as the picture shows below i have used some weirdo things & a key element to the elegia's sound since the beginning : the melodica.

I now have quite a bunch of elements which do work toguether & i have programmed a very "strong" rythm pattern but i doubt i will keep it, it reminds me something that has been made into an old Bjork's lp.

I wrote yesterday as well a very sweet melodic lead using the roland sh-09 & some chords just before to take care of the sounds i recorded the day before.

The funny part : all that mess can "work" toguether" , i mean there were an idea deep inside me which was hiding & wanted to be ouputed using a way or another.

hazard et nécessité

back into the "process"

You have no idea how dusty was the mic stand !
I have stocked the thing during so many months , not to mention it took me a while before to find the right audio cable in order to plug the Audio Technica At-4050 microphone.

Just did a few tests last evening in order to make the sound on the Avalon 737 for different audio takes.

I think it's gonna be the starting point of the "process", i'm gonna record different stuff, vocals noises,objects being hit by other objects & so forth.
The idea is to create different textures & natural rythms that will be processed then after into a secret weapon.....

"oh great ??! then you will add a kick don't u ? "

I truly don"t know , is that necessary ???, to always normalize something to an existing genre.......

I plan to use a guitar as well... what for ?

Certainly not for playing guitar, you can trust me.........

Time to shut down the Internet's computer........

SO , it is now Official

It is like pushing the recording button again, after more than Four long years i have decided to open the Pandora's box.

Emptyness is quite the right word , to describe, what music inspired to me lately; there is no actual music which satisfy myself as a listener.
I did such statement when i was a teen, i was so bored, & i did it , i did my own music with the results you probably know.

Elégia is Returning

The page is blank, i have no ideas of the incoming results & honnestly i feel myself so free from any music styles that i don't give a S..T.

Thanks for reading & soon for listening
