Richard Pinhas is a French musician, “electronic music pioneer and leader member of the legendary Heldon“. He is a sort of musician-philosopher, considerably influenced by Gilles Deleuze. I won’t really present his work here – there are web pages for that – but I’d like to talk about his style.
- A specific lava sound of guitar (close to Robert Fripp’s)
- Minimalism and icy synthesizers
- Cyclical electronics à la Philip Glass
- Strong machinic KingCrimsonian monsters (Heldon)
A perpetuum modulating electronic crescendo
Synthfloating over ice with machines, then landing within panting beasts
A growing standstill monster
Infernal and methodical crimsonian rush – listen to it loud
I hope I showed you something you’ve never heard. It’s not that easy to explorer, I admit it. I regret this seems to be a lost branch in music. Imagine what rappers could have done with the last one! Imagine what you could imagine with these weirdeities listened in the dark?
Thanks for reading!
