Zomianscape I - II
"When asked what were my early influences in music, I get reminded of my teenage years in Parisian suburbs, simultaneously discovering from public libraries two important French record labels: OCORA and GRM. Then the roots of my interest in traditional music and electro-acoustic experiments grew into doing it myself, recording ethnic minorities of the zomian plateau of south-east Asia and composing a soundscape around it. This is what is happening here."
Laurent Jeanneau aka KINK GONG
Kink Gong has been leaning towards strange marriages, building on raw materials.
They are lived moments that combine place, people and music, as if they were made out of the same material.
