why we love this
This record is a joyful exploration of rhythmical electronics. Even though it’s highly percussive in nature, the energy level never peaks too overly high – making this record a perfect soundtrack to transport yourself into a calm & collected mood. The simplicity of the cover design and the title (Matière is Matter in French) reflects this perfectly.
about the record
The debut EP of Noémi Büchi ‘Matière’ is the result of an extensive study with a modular synthesizer as her instrument of choice mixed with field recordings of sounds and noises surrounding her every day life. Apart from being a student of Electroacoustic Composition and listening to tons of music, Noémi finds most of her inspiration in long nature walks through nearby forests and foggy hills situated close to her bedroom studio.
With her music she leads the listener safely through deep paths of complex rhythms and otherworldly sounds. Her awareness of timbre, nuance and harmonic diversity are constantly matched with her ability to produce fresh and revealing arrangements.
