2015 release. Desert Television is the debut collaborative album by French musician and artist Felicia Atkinson and Peter Broderick as La Nuit. La Nuit could be the story of a friendship, an exchange of gifts, or a kind of pacific oath. A few years of trust turned into one light, but essential, messy bubble of soap. One special day of summer 2014, a music is dreamed, thought, performed, carried like a little astronaut's mission by Peter and Felicia. Or it could be a special kind of chess game, a rendezvous between two knights meeting nobly to discuss the same invisible cause that we call music. Using the instruments (Rhodes, pump organ, synthesizers, nylon guitar, etc.) as their only tools, by the wonderful sea shore of Pacific City, the instruments were like good horses, carrying the vocabulary of the conversation. Imagination drains improvisation, and suddenly, in the middle of the notes, words, appear, you don't know from where, but they appear to shine and turn to little gems made of voices and whispers. "Desert Television's divine sound world of drone-infused ambient soundscapes, dub echoes, mesmeric spoken word passages, and compelling instrumentation (Rhodes, violin, voice, found sounds, percussion) unfolds a beguiling atmosphere and ethereal dimension from the opening ambient pulses of 'Feu Pale', to the gorgeous string arrangements of epic closing track, 'The Sun Is Folded in Eight'. 'Feu Pale''s drifting tones of Rhodes, guitar, harmonies and soft percussion meld wonderfully with the captivating spoken word passages of Atkinson evoking a seascape of forgotten dreams." --Fractured Air. Comes on red vinyl; jackets printed by Stumptown Printers; Design by Bijan Berahimi; Comes with a red-stapled booklet, The Raccoons Of Pacific City, by Atkinson; Cover photo by Felicia; Edition of 300.
