There is, it's a fact, when one listens to them, some kind of introduction, a resonance, and an extinction; sounds have an existence of their own; they resemble a type of life which develops through time. Manipulating Dialogue and Random is an exciting way to free some grooves, a way to give them life without dependancy and for them to live together in a new dimension. This sound library is the result of manipulations, collages, sound hijackings guided by our will to have a rich, an original and a quality tone palette, unrivaled to date. There are no samples, no loops, no expanders presets, no virtual synthesizers, everything is played live with real instruments. There are absolutely no classic sounds related to scratch (the "aah"'s, "fresh"'s or others sentences scratched by the Dj's for more than 20 years). Knowing the advancement of the turntable music and of the equipment, the classical battle tools records are not specialized enough anymore. That is not the case of Dialogue And Random which was created with this constraint in mind and was really appreciated by those who are pushing this artistic discipline further. # You can listen to the totality of both sides and order DAR II on the = TGOS SHOP You can make your payment on# TGOS SHOP using: - credit card / secure online payment with SP PLUS Caisse d'Epargne (SSL encrypted) - Paypal (SSL encrypted) - bank transfert - Shipping outside France using priority postal service >>> We have realised two promo videos about the making of DAR II, shot in our studio Infernale Machine Research Center. The first video is a condensed explanation of the architecture, the different tracks of the record. We can see the instruments and effects in situation, and the work on the sound material... The second one is more complete and follows the structure of the two sides Dialogue and Random with more technical explanations. There is also a brief history of those old instruments, effects, and pioneers like Bob Moog, Tom Oberheim, Harold Rhodes... Moreover we can see an interview of Phonomorphia with Morse and Enfoe explainig the possibilities offered by Dialogue And Random Phase II. We can listen to "Planete Cerveau 44-3" (track created by Phonomorphia with the only use of Dialogue And Random Phase II) on the second issue of the compilation Cuts Of Culture from the english label Eclectic Breaks ( http://www.eclecticbreaks.com ).
