Biography

Gwenn Trémorin played bass guitar in a certain number of new-wave bands before he joined Stadium. Stadium was a noisy pop musical experiment, whose sound was influenced by such acts as Sonic Youth, Sebadoh and My Bloody Valentine.
Trémorin describes himself as a person who has always been into very different kinds of music. As an adolescent, he was fond of new-wave bands like The Cure, Joy Division or Modern English. Indeed, melancholy of their music still has a strong influence on his own work.

More recently he took a real interest in various types of experimental electronic music, with groups like Arovane, Beefcake, Black Lung, Aphex Twin, Ammo, Panacea, Somatic Responses, Pan Sonic, Vromb… among many others. Inspired by their “peculiar” aural experiments and also by his friend Matthieu Maire from Celluloid Mata (who had just created his label with Steph Alt, “Vaccum”), Trémorin decided to start his own label.
Thus, in December 2000, Brume Records was born. Under the pseudonym of Flint Glass, he made his debut with the full-length album ‘Hierakonpolis’. And indeed, he could not introduce himself in a more convincing way.
This debut is described by critics as representing some of the most innovative stylings towards rhythmic noise and dark ambient genres. Production-wise this is quite a dark recording, staying clear of the crisp, punchy approach of artists such as Mlada Fronta, for example.

    although, this is extremely cool, i was kinda expecting a beat behind it. something like say, Angel by Massive Attack? something to make me bob my head and say "man, this is some good shit" and not be talking about the weed for once. i am interested in this though....

    Really good to meet you in Estonia- enjoyed your set, and really enjoying the Tzolk'in-Haab' CD. Quite enjoyed how many times we fell over on the way to and from the 'pub' too! All the best, Matt
