For Gongs, Laurent returns to his soundscape approach not seen since the Xinjiang LP (2011) and develops his unique re-versions around the extensive Gong recordings he made on location in the remote regions of Cambodia & Laos.
Over the years Jeanneau has become an expert of Gong orchestras of South East Asia, releasing in 2014 a double LP highlighting the different tonalities and resonances inherent to this kind of animistic ceremonies of the Asian Sub Continent (Gongs of Cambodia, Kink Gong recs, 2014). The compositions on this LP deform, re-assemble and distort said recordings.
They contain unedited acoustic recordings, computer modified parts, sound collages and acoustic recordings of people and instruments.
All tracks were recorded on location and re-arranged by Laurent Jeanneau in Dali, Paris & Berlin.
released October 13, 2014
