This is the debut full-length release by Swiss producer Agnès aka Modeste. You might have bumped into some of Modeste's earlier works for Echochord which were released in late 2007. At that time, the focus was deep dub techno -- this time, Modeste chose a different path. The new record is a lush, dizzy, driving collection of low keys, ambient scapes and slowly-evolving, warm, drone-based music. Modeste builds its own cocoon -- a world of unformatted, moving sounds and freely-randomized, smooth works. The compositions presented here were all done with the same process; start a new project, don't change a thing considering what the technology is providing you with by default, and start making something with as few as possible technological boundaries. As if a child without mathematical limitations (from a musical point of view) would have been fiddling around with things, so Modeste chose to work as freely as possible, concentrating on the audio results rather than the technical matters.
