Excellent New Album form the unclassifiable Pierre Bastien, who's process of making music is completley unique. Basically Bastien builds a kind of mechanical Orchestra he calls a mechanium, the orchestra is made out of the childrens toy Mecanno. These instruments play loops on instruments, record players etc whilst he plays pretty melodies over the top on his trumpet or some other exotic instrument. The sound is approaching clicks and cuts style glitch but with a more analogue depth, stranger rhythmic forms and the feeling that the whole thing could fall apart at any moment. In fact the album would make a wonderful soundtrack for the mechanical worlds created in the Jeunet and Caro films like 'Delicatessen'. This is his second album for Rephlex, this one is perhaps more poppy as the title suggests, melodies and textures build more.
