Servovalve is a french multimedia artist (audio & video). Over the past years he made the CD-ROM parts of several well-known projects like Laurent Hô (Uwe), LTNO (Naïve) or Atlas Project (Prikosnovénie). His first CD was released in 2001 on the Uwe label. This first album Servovalve was suported by many remarkable live performances (Uwe festival, Artooz festival, Nouveau Casino, Batofar, Etoile du Nord …) where the music was supported by synchronizd images creating some obsessional universes.
M-Tronic is now proud to announce the release of the second album entitled "Le Sixième doigt" which really is an exploration into the possibilites of music and machines without any restrictions. Abrasive rhythms collide with melodic sounds or strange vocal samples. The harshness of some tracks ("Noshrum", "Irregularities") leaves also the place to mid-tempo pieces ("le gloom") or mutant electronica. Servovalve is able to create saturated landscapes mixed with quiet parts.
The audio part is enriched by a ROM part called "Irregularmix", it contains a player (for PC and Mac) able to play 4096 different and random mixes of the song "Irregularities", samples and audio sequences intereact and create each time a different and surprising result. "Irregularmix" is a sample of the infinite CD concept Servovalve is working on.
Moreover all cover artworks have different colors making this CD a special object !
