«Finally I had the honor of meeting Laurent Peter, the man behind the machines and objects that make up the name 'd'incise'. He came for the second time to Lisbon to play with Cyril Bondi (Diatribes) and some more local jazz musicians. They did an awesome show at Crew Hassan and, as I wrote above, I met Laurent in person, that same night.
We exchanged some audio gifts and among the ones I got, there was a handmade copy of 'Morsure Souffle', the latest d'incise album we are offering you now.

'Morsure Souffle' is an amazing and fresh-sounding album. It's an album that, while retaining the already well-known 'd'incise trademark sound', it's also somewhat of a departure from his previous work. d'incise sounds much more detached from synthesis based and computer generated sounds, and almost completely embraces field recordings and found sounds as 'prime matter' for this work. The pieces are so much more complex and unpredictable, that you never know what you'll be getting next, until it hits you.
This work is offered together with a set of 'collages' made by the artist himself, that fully complete the work. Be served and enjoy.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«The true keeper on Morsure Souffle, the new album by d’incise (aka Laurent Peter, is the final track, “À plusieurs altitudes”. It’s a long, rich sound journey, built initially on a torrent of chimes, a whirling, full-bodied flood that sounds like an orchestra of bells. This is slowly subsumed by surface noise, at first sounding like vinyl, but then, in time, exposed to be the effect of wind and motion on a microphone, because out of those endlessly ringing bells come voices, and footsteps, and motion — all manner of natural sound caught up in d’incise’s sampler.»

«Morsure Souffle , has all the audio hallmarks of a highly subtle sound collage. Released on Portugese netlabel Testube, it is at once found/environmental sound collected, collated and fused into shapes. Then moments of sound echo of improvisational jazz, or at least the stripped echoes of the oeuvre, or even semi-precise mimicry triggering found moments in the audience. Yet the action of extreme electronic manipulation is never far from the palette and the guise of nature as a backdrop to audio acoustic experimentation is as sensible a template as any. Even the sound of the chime, catching the wind, or the approximation of it combined with a sonic hum/purr and gently advancing triangle alarm is enough of a sound argument. Then there is the central track la Banquise living up to its name, a feast of noise terror, (a humorous notion in itself), mutating in to crisp audio action of imaginary violated string experiments on a vanquished piano; reason enough to display control and succinctness of digital prowess.»

«la densité et la matière, retour en force du réel, aucune illusion mais de très nombreuses (et toujours aussi denses) allusions, la lumière est soudainement tangible et entichée d'une épaisseur très particulière. d'incise nous convie à une étonnante flânerie sans équivoque, riche en sensations, mais en celà nous savions l'homme aguerri de longue date. Véritable ouvrage d'un plasticien sonore, "morsure souffle" ne doit pas être rangé sur une étagère, mais placé bien en évidence, toujours à portée d'oreille, car cette musique est utile.»
