  1. Out now ! via http://threeop.bandcamp.com ENG I met Amédée de Murcia almost 20 years ago, via a message board (dedicated to electronic music, obviously). He’s a French electronic musician currently living in Saint-Etienne. Somaticae is his flagship project, under which he’s published a captivating and shapeshifting body of work: from his first releases - think Autechre, Errorsmith and Drexciya - to his subsequent ventures into vastly improvised, texturized noise-heavy yet groovy AF territories, his discography is dense and luxuriant. I’m not even talking about his numerous bands: OD Bongo, Balladur, Jazzoux, Insiden… ! TD; DR: dive into his back-catalog (and thank me later). Here, Somaticae melts club music tropes, using dissonance and micro-tuning. Présent Perpétuel revolves around a 4 parts long-form piece, Faux Futur. Narratively irresistible, definitely epic, it’s an absolute, incendiary banger. Mental and moist, all at once. The balance between sophisticated composition and sound design, and immediate and sharp delivery is perfect. Somaticae records his tunes live, stretching his studio performances to get out of his comfort zone to eventually share the bits that surprised himself. And down the road, the audience as well. Présent Perpétuel begins and ends with two short pieces, titled eponymously: contemplative and suspended, out of time. De Murcia’s talent for melody shines here. We've been listening to this EP over and over for months now: we are happy to announce that you are about to do the same. n. FR J’ai rencontré Amédée de Murcia par forum interposé (dédié aux musiques électronique, eh) il y’a presque 20ans maintenant. Il est un musicien électronique français vivant actuellement à Saint-Etienne. Somaticae est son projet phare, captivant et protéiforme : de ses premières sorties convoquant tant Autechre, Errorsmith que Drexcyia jusqu’aux méandres de l’improvisation qui se danse, pleine de bruit et de groove à la fois, sa discographie est riche et foisonnante. Et je ne détaille même pas ses nombreux groupes : OD Bongo, Balladur, Jazzoux, Insiden… ! TL; DR : plongez vous dans son back-catalogue (et remerciez-moi ensuite). Ici, Somaticae s’attaque au club à grand renfort de dissonance et de micro-tonalité. Présent Perpétuel s’articule autour d’un morceau en 4 parties, Faux Futur. Puissamment narratif, résolument épic, c’est un banger absolu, incendiaire. Mental et moite à la fois. L’équilibre entre la sophistication de la composition et du sound-design et l’immédiateté de l’exécution est parfait. Somaticae enregistre ses morceaux live, étire ses performances studio pour sortir de sa zone de confort et ne conserve que ce qu’il le surprend. Sur nous auditeur, l’effet n’en est que plus grand. Présent Perpétuel s’ouvre et se ferme sur 2 vignettes du même nom, contemplatives et suspendues, hors du temps. Le talent certain pour les mélodies de De Murcia sont ici au premier plan : irrésistibles. Nous écoutons en boucle cet EP depuis des mois maintenant, nous sommes heureux de vous annoncer que vous vous apprêtez à en faire autant. n. Written between March and April 2022 at citadel Raspail, Saint-Etienne (FR) and recorded/edited/mixed in July 2022 at Bergstraat, Rotterdam (NL) by Amédée de Murcia. Mastering by Nil Hartman. Artwork by Théophile Blandet, PS Shelf detail, 2018. Picture by Ronald Smits. Killer 6 tracker, halfway between SND and Dopplereffeckt by the one and only improv virtuoso Somaticae
