Our latest release is a two act, two label, two format collaboration between Montreal’s Baccam / Chayer and Broken Shoulder, Jeunesse Cosmique and Kirigirisu and CDR and tape.
Baccam / Chayer is a collaboration between Chittakone Baccam (Hazy Montagne Mystique) and Yannick Chayer. Their music is a decomposition of pieces written in symbols with the help of invented instruments, tape loop and ethnic instruments. ‘Les Angoisses Nocturnes’ (in English, maybe nocturnal anxiety), is made up of two slabs of improvised noise. Listen out for the acid saxophone and noise totoro.
Broken Shoulder’s section is made up of four tracks made at the same time from a simple set up using the same limited palette of sounds. It’s mostly my favorite old keyboard which now seems to have broken combined with some field recordings taken at home and whilst traveling and a little bit of guitar thrown in there at the last minute. This time there is no nighttime anguish but more of a daytime disorientation with a bit of churning in there too. It feels like the natural development of the long pieces on Hashiridase but distilled into smaller pieces.

Soundwaves of great fascination. I'm very familiar with Broken Shoulder via their Audio Antihero days and the 2nd track in particular is a source of great enjoyment for me with what sounds like an extended organ piece. Overall though, excellent experimental work from both acts. Gavin Hellyer
