White Static 04:40
A WAKE-UP CALL A BROKEN PHONE LINE CHASING A DREAM OF YOU I REALIZE SILENCE, MY ENEMY DO YOU SEE THE WHITE? DO YOU HEAR THE STATIC NOISE? CAN YOU FEEL MY HAND HOLDING YOURS WHILE YOU SLEEP? IT’S THE LAST TIME TO THE TOWER I’M GOING TOO SLOW THE MOON GOES DOWN THE VOID IS REAL IT’S RIGHT ABOVE ME CHEMICALS CUTE NEEDLES GHOSTLY WHITE DRESSES ON THE EIGHTH FLOOR BROKEN FLOWERS LIKE YOU UNDERNEATH DO YOU SEE THE WHITE? DO YOU HEAR THE STATIC NOISE? CAN YOU FEEL MY HAND HOLDING YOURS WHILE YOU SLEEP? WHERE ARE YOU NOW? THE EMPTINESS WITHIN ME IS FILLED UP WITH THE VOID YOUR ABSENCE, MY ENEMY CAN’T YOU COME BACK? WHERE ARE YOU NOW? I STILL TOUCH I CAN’T FEEL THE ACHE INSIDE YOU IT’S TOO LATE I CAN’T SAY THE WORDS I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU THE SUN GOES DOWN AND THIS GREEN LIGHT BECOMES WHITE FOR YOU DO YOU SEE THE WHITE? DO YOU HEAR THE STATIC NOISE? CAN YOU FEEL MY HAND HOLDING YOURS TILL THE END? WHERE ARE YOU NOW? THE EMPTINESS WITHIN ME IS FILLED UP WITH THE VOID YOUR ABSENCE, MY ENEMY

about

Materia focuses on matter. Seven recording sessions were conducted with various elements not primarily related to music: an eggshell, a metal spring, some water, plastic, glass, rock, and bronze. The result is part of the entire album, and each track has its own matter. In a world where our relationships are mainly virtual, MICROPANiK offers here a more concrete experience, which is the result of our senses in a natural state, without any intermediaries. To touch, see, smell, feel and just contemplate the utopia of living an instant without our fuckin’ screens. Matter is nature, nature is animal and animal is human. The respect of the matter, the preservation of mankind.
_______

Materia est thématique et traite de la matière. Sept sessions d’enregistrement ont été réalisées à partir d’éléments dont la vocation première n’est pas de créer de la musique : coquille d’œuf, ressort de métal, eau, plastique, verre, pierre et bronze. Le résultat s’insère dans l’album et chacune des pièces de Materia incorpore sa propre matière.
À une époque où nos relations sont du domaine virtuel, MICROPANiK propose ici une expérience de ce qui est tangible, le résultat de nos sens à l’état brut sans intermédiaire. Toucher, voir, sentir, entendre et l’utopie de vivre un moment nos fuckin’ écrans fermés. La matière est nature, la nature est animal et l’animal est homme. Le respect de la matière, le maintien de l’homme.
