Brume (Christian Renou) is a prolific French musique concrete composer/sound sculptor who
has won himself a place of his own with his crossover between sound collages, electro-acoustics and noise. His compositions rely on dense, rapid-fire montage and wed cacophony and dynamics, emphasizing both the elements of discontinuity and continuity.
1978: 1st steps with a farfisa organ, inspired by surreal soundscapes ala Fripp & Eno + experiments experiments experiments. Tries to make a compromise between electronic and electro-acoustic.
1985: creation of Brume rec.
1986-2000: many vinyls, Cds, cassettes, and some soundtracks for visual artists.
2000: Brume stops everything. Regeneration.
2008: 30 years after his first sound, Brume starts again his experimentations. For our pleasure.
Alone, you have to listen to Brume alone, and lie down far from the neon lights, traffic and gossips, with your lights filtered. In the dominating dark and night, Brume carries an atomized reality to a world where chaos rhymes with spatial waverings, where atmosphere is devoid of impurity, rich with rhythms and sonorities, and dense with emotions, for a mysterious but undoubtedly innovatory energetic trip. « Ainsi soit-il! » envelopes us with a rich, complex and experimental coat.
